Automag Auto Response Frame Trigger and Sear

Evan “Goon” Neale posted asking about the correct sear to a Proline Autoresponse frame so I pulled out this trigger, sear and linkage to photograph. 

Auto Response Frame Sear and Trigger

This photo shows the trigger, sear and linkage piece. 

Correct positioningA spring hold the bottom of the linkage down towards the back of the frame and the round radius on the sear likely meets and pivots on the trigger?

Radius cutout on sear is size of a nickel Close up of sear cut out

 Evan asked what radius the circular cutout on the sear had.  A nickel fit almost perfectly in the cutout.Auto Response sear compared to a standard classic sear The Auto Response Trigger, Sear and linkage on the left compared to a classic Automag sear on the right.

The sear is almost identical with the exception of the cut out and the rounded bottom of the sear where the linkage pivots on the Auto Response sear.  The classic automag sear has a square base.

Base of the Auto Response sear and the Automag sear

 

The base of the two sears compared.  The Auto Response Sear, Trigger and linkage (front) has a rounded bottom.

From what I’ve seen the Auto response frames are identical to the standard proline / Gun FX Automag trigger frames. Both early frames typically have the hole cut out of the base for the spring that hooks into the link to attach and only the trigger, sear and linkage are different.  I know my Team Sasquatch Micromag seen in the video below has the same hole to hook the linkage onto. I actually plan on inserting the linkage photographed into the Team Sasquatch mag’s frame.

Thanks to Goon for prompting me to take these photos.

  1. AMEN! I’m still considered “young” by most (I’m 29) but I’ve been playing paintball since I was 10 years old back in 1996. An automag classic was the first gun I ever owned, followed by a minimag, and I will have my automag until the day I die. Kids nowadays come out dressed to the gills with $1000s worth of equipment and they dont even recognize what gun I just painted their lenses from across the field with. It’s sad/pathetic that this generations paintballers don’t give enough love/credit to the origins of their sport. it’s all about who has the shiniest fastest shooting gun to them, and I salute you for this video man. Again, I say Amen to everything you just said in this video.

Here is a tiny Minicocker I found that has some similarities to an early gen SFL autocockers. Really bad shape but neat round cuts.
