Southern Pneumatics Phoenix vs Falcon Inc. Falcon Switch

Pictures that Tim @ Paintball Tek dot com took of the Phoenix switch next to the giant Falcon Switch. 

Phoenix is a slide trigger and the Falcon is a hinge trigger.

The Falcon eliminates the Phoenix’s rotating breech and incorporates a ram driven spring loaded bolt. 

On the Falcon’s switch ”I think” the top portion is the switch and the bottom is an added return for the trigger?

Now that I have heard the rumor of most Falcon’s being dumped in a lake from more than one source I am beginning to believe it.

Here are a few short write ups I did on the Falcon:

Dissecting a 1999 Mini STO Breakdown – serial 5759

As I parted out this WGP 1999 Mini STO I took photos of piece of the pieces so I could eventually re assemble them on another Autococker / Minicocker body.

A Minicocker similar to early BBT SFLs

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