    I ordered a second F1 trigger but that one wont arrive till the first week of 2018 but I so wanted to see how this trigger would work as a replacement of the V2 trigger and what can I say : just perfect all I needed to do was adjusting the needle spring tension to an even more softer setting the tension screw is now almost turned all the way out I could not do that with the V2 trigger installed as the needle would not go back all the way if I released the trigger but it does go all the way back with the F1 trigger

    I'll tell ya what - as long as you are not using solvent based paints, if you switch the teflon packing with an o-ring, the trigger action in this brush can be truly sublime :). The o-ring seal will allow a much softer, smoother feel than the teflon does.

    it is a little over $14.00, but there will be almost as much shipping added. Maybe we can tag team on an order, when you are ready. There are a few things I have been meaning to order too.

    Tag team order is a great idea guys, my problem is there’s no-one here to tag team with, :( , so I ordered 10! No I don’t quite have enough brushes but 10 seemed such a nice round number!

    Super quick shipping too, I ordered a few days ago and it’s already in Australia. So I should get them just after Xmas with any luck

    I switched the teflon seal for the o-ring seal as soon as I bought this airbrush that teflon seal is a nightmare

    this sounds like the eclipse type trigger and the F1 trigger wont fit if that is the case

    for those who own a v2 micron and never worked with the v1 version with the shorter trigger be ready for a surprise the v2 will react just like the v1 did to the slightest trigger movement :D

    I was speaking with @DaveG and he is positive it can be done and was going to check.
