Some paintball markers such as the Tippmann A-5 use a metal "sear" that locks the bolt and hammer assembly in its charged or "cocked" position and won't activate unless the trigger is pulled, which discharges the marker. The tripper activates or "trips" (can be a solenoid if the trigger is electronic) the sear.
