Is there a way to use the Keychain (KG12 Trigger) I got with the pedals on my Gladiator?

Yes, you can use it on your Gladiator:

You'll have to remove the pin from your keychain and replace your plastic trigger. Keep in mind the metal KG-12 trigger does not have the magnet the plastic version has.
A user on Reddit managed to drill a hole and place a magnet in the metal version, but it will require tools and DIY enthousiasm ;)

I didn't replace mine so I can't confirm it's very easy to do (it should), but size and pin/bolt axis diameter should be almost exactly the same.

I wondering why you guys don't think in add a spring there to make trigger work like the real. :wink:

Will be need a ~2mm ball plunger to keep trigger in fire position.

How is in real trigger:

BTW- If do this, caution to don't damage your thumb finger nail polish. :mrgreen:

Hi guys
I removed the pin with a long screw.
Also used a special pliers to pull the pin out.
Had to drill a bigger hole for the original pin.
Works well,but be awear of you hands and eyes safety.
Bye, David

The magnet keep the trigger over the fire button, since is not used spring in trigger.

Between the trigger and the fire button has a spring internally, that is attracted by magnet field.

And seems the trigger already has a "cam" for lock the ball plunger: :)
