    alternate trigger/sear mechanism



    I realize there are some technical inaccuracies with the picture, but I'm curious if anyone has tried something like this for relocating the trigger.
    "Accuracy by aiming."


    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    Thats what I was thinking too...

    Personally Ive always wondered why the sear pivot is after the lever..

    I like where your head is at though.. would be fun to try!
    No, with the proper geometry, pulling back on the trigger would push the back end of the sear up, and thus push the front of the sear down, i.e. fire the gun.

    The fact that it would be a slider trigger is more of a coincidence. (Although I do prefer slider triggers.)

    The whole point is to move the grip/trigger backwards on the frame in the simplest way possible.

    then why dont you attatch a trigger shoe to the part of the sear that sticks down?

    Huh... never thought of that. That might actually work...

    That has been done. Chuff city.

    As for slider mags, that's also been done using a sear/pin combo and a cocker frame with a modified trigger plate.

    Hrm. Was there a post on this?

    I just tried a mockup of the direct-sear action and it seemed to work just fine. Might come down to how the "shoe" is designed, which is kind of tricky.

    It's tight, but I think this is the best route.
