PRODUCT IMPROVEMENT – Trigger Control Plug Housing on BTB MIG Guns

November 23, 2015

Bernard has redesigned the trigger control plug housing on located on the rear strain relief as well as the trigger control plug connection on BTB MIG Guns. This change provides an internal connection which is more durable and also allows the strain relief to fit more easily into various feeders from major manufacturers. The Double-Life MIG Gun System also known as the "flip-flop" for T Series Large Straight Handles is still compatible with this change.
