Steve Woodward, also known as Steve-in-NC after 2 ½ years of effort has finally been able to (in part at least) been able to finally copy my original GTX-II and GTX-III trigger. It seems that he has also been able to find both someone to manufacture it in this country (rather that having his poorly and inefficiently unsafe designed original MK-1 and GTX trigger) instead of being manufactured off shore.
Why did it take him so long? Because he wasn’t capable of doing it on his own without copying it. If you look at his design, it is similar to my old version of the GRT-II and GRT-III. It was only marketed for a very short time and was obsolete a couple of years ago. It is a copy the GTX-II and GTX-III of which he had no part in the trigger redesigning.
However, it is not like the GRT-III trigger (it would be very difficult and expensive to do) and it certainly does not have the quality of the GRT-III.
Also, because of his inability and being unable to even develop his own instructions and other written materials, he has copied much of his ideas and promotional aides either in full or in part from my website. Steves idea of success is to take whatever he can from anybody that he can and use it to promote himself or agenda. He is incapable of doing much on his own because he just doesn’t have the ability and most people that know Steve are well aware of it.
If the GRT-III trigger design is a trigger design that Steve claims I had so-called stolen from him, why didn’t he just manufacture and market it years ago. Why did he take so long? I’ll tell you why. It took him that long to make a CNC dimentional drawing for it, then make a CNC program for it and then to find someone to manufacture it.
As I have always said in the past, Steve did come up with the original MK-I trigger but the concept and product just never worked. It was sorry at best. It wasn’t any different than many of the other original ideas that he has come up with. They either didn’t work or had many faults and others had to perfect them.
Also, because of his inability and being unable to develop his own instructions and other written materials, he has copied much of his promotional aides directly in full or in part directly from my website. His idea of success is to take whatever he can from anybody that he can and use it to promote himself. He is incapable of doing much on his own because he just doesn’t have the ability and most people that know Steve are well aware of it.
Almost everyone in the realm of airguns that follows the forums knows Steve has made attempts to manufacture his other “developed” mods, has had little to no success with either manufacturing or marketing his (products) because of either the poor designs, reliability, workmanship, quality or his poor relationships with the persons that he works with or a combination of.
If you knew Steve as I know Steve, you would readily understand why. It starts out good and he does have a smooth tongue but it doesn’t take long for them to see him for what and who he really is and has always failed.
As the manufacturer and marketing agent, my customer service history is impeccable. As everyone that has ever purchased a GRT-III trigger (as well as the original GTX-III trigger) knows, I am personally available to answer any and all questions regarding the GRT-III trigger. Although it rarely happens, if there is an installation problem, I’m always available and respond usually within minutes of being made aware of it either by phone if a number is provided or an immediate e-mail. My customers contact me directly and don’t go through some commercial third party. They go directly to the source. Do you think for one minute Steve will provide that kind of personal service?
