Downside I suppose is the hefty servicing charges if they need to go home which might be a major factor in purchasing. I will be honest and I moved mine on because I felt they were getting on regarding boards etc. Still shot bob on.

Triggers well like Dave said I never noticed it, shot was gone maybe occassionally too soon but I was always taught the trigger should break as a surprise. They were light for sure, not enough movement to notice anything apart from the bang.

My Anschutz triggers are excellent but they only do what the mouse does, yes if you like a heavy(by comparison) then a mechanical trigger gives you more feeling. If you want a light touch and gone then the only difference I would factor in is no battery to worry about.

I bought my mk3ftr in 2007/8?.
1st service nov 2014, 138 @ SCR.
New battery this year, 38?.

Not bad for 7 years shooting comps as main rifle ( Ok, I did try a couple of others on and off.....)
