    Hammer (Trigger) Pack Sticky

    First off, there will be no talk of making your gun auto or any illegal talk!! You will be banned with no warning if you do!!

    Secondly, I think we need a thread to show what the different trigger packs look like and a brief description of the differences. So can someone please post up pics of the different packs. We will discuss it to make sure everything is correct, and I will sticky the thread

    Please include a picture of the inside of the pack, not just the color and underneath explain what makes this one different.

    PS. if there is already a thread about this, please post a link here so I can review it

    Thanks, MP.


    Thanks go to M1P90, JHS, and artanscience for their help

    Generation 2 (Grey Housing with Black Hammer)

    A) Auto Sear
    B) Hammer
    C) Front Sear.
    D) Rear Sear


    Pack Parts.jpg



    The things that changed between generations:
    1) pack body color (black then gray)
    2) hammer shape and color (black then gray or white)
    3) front sear shape and color (OD green then gray)
    4) presence of auto sear (present in all generations except gen 4)

    Now, using this system, I will define the generations:

    Gen 1: Black pack body, black hammer (some very early ones may have an orange hammer), OD green front sear, auto sear present.
    Gen 2: Gray pack body, black hammer, OD green or gray front sear, auto sear present.
    Gen 3: Gray pack body, gray hammer, gray front sear, auto sear present.
    Gen 4: Gray pack body, black, gray, or white hammer, gray front sear, no auto sear. (As JHS mentioned, the hammer in a Gen 4 may actually be black but the defining characteristic is that there is no auto sear.)

    As you can see, there are some variations, so the real evolution is defined by:
    Gen 1 to Gen 2: Old, black P90 style pack body to the gray pack body. Some Gen 2s get the gray front sear.
    Gen 2 to Gen 3: Black hammer replaced with gray (or sometimes white) hammer and all front sears are now gray.
    Gen 3 to Gen 4: The auto sear is removed. With this change, FN apparently began to use a variety of internal color variations, but all front sears will remain gray.

    Now, I have added some of my own pics and stolen some of the ones JHS and MP190 posted to make a complete photo list:

    Gen 1:

    Gen 2:

    Generation 4, grey body can have grey, black, or a combo of grey and black internal parts. The auto sear is removed.

    Since I've been handling a lot of trigger packs I've noticed 5 distinct types. I have pictures of all five types I'll have to post ASAP. I've never seen the all black one, so that would make a 6th type. I have a PS90 who's serial # indicates it is one of the first thousand, and it's not black. Are black ones limited to the first couple hundred units? Does anyone on here have a black one?

    The three main things when people are seperating the packs into generations are the body color, having the auto sear, and the hammer type.

    I should say the three main things collectors are looking for.

    Often times we wonder where engineers come up with their ideas. Here's an answer to one of those times.

    Thank John M. Browning once again...

    This is mine from my first purchase in 2007. It is black but it looks like the sear is very dark green.

    That would be a Gen 1.

    Got mine in 2006 and it came with a Gen 2.
