Update time! Had some time to investigate the trigger issue on my VFC SCAR-H which I purchased from peter. Take a look at this contact...

Not much to say here I mean christ, less than 5000 BBs through it and the contact is looking like that. I AM using an 11.1 lipo battery but that kind of wear is insane for that little use. Design flaw or what?

I'm in the process of deciding on how to address the issue, so far the only long term solution I've thought of is introducing a small relay into the stock to prevent the arching when the contacts move away from another which would theoretically stop this pitting/corrosion. If I have space I'll install a socket so over time I could replace the relays as their contacts will of course also wear.

Open to suggestions!
