what do you mean by finger goooves??? are you talking about a "concaved" trigger face (like the factory oem trigger)??? if not, please clarify.

I am a total newb but I would really like to get one of those triggers for my Buckmark and even in red as it would match my new TS red fluted barrel. I have been playing paintball for many years now and had an idea for your triggers would it be possible to put a forward travel set screw in an extended upper area of the trigger. In high end paintball guns one can "take the slop out" of the forward as well as the rearward movment. It would make the trigger break much more predictable. Like I said I am a total newb so correct me if I am wrong. Thanks

you're talking about pre-travel...

you're talking about pre-travel and i've already have "something in mind" that i will "tinker" with in the near future (kinda up to my elbows in aluminum chips at the moment).

fortunately for buckmark owner's, the pre-travel on a buckmark is not as "noticeable" compared to the pre-travel on other pistols.

as mentioned previously, all comments and suggestions are welcome, whether it be from a total "newb" or a resident buckmark "guru" (and anyone in between).

I mean multiple horizontal grooves on the trigger face for a more positive feel and friction. I like the flat trigger face.

adds more machining time but can be done...

providing a more "tactile" surface for the trigger face can be achieved in numerous ways, some more labor intensive (ie. stippling, checkering, machining grooves) and some easier methods (texture/wrinkle powdercoat, adhesive backed "grip" tape).

but to answer your question, yes there are ways to machine grooves on to the trigger face.

just messin' around...

decided to take a much needed "break" from the "monotonous" task of machining trigger blanks.

as always, the urge to "tinker" has "re-surfaced".

went back and used some of the suggestions posted for "inspiration".

1. over-travel screw
3. drill holes to lighten and trim metal from back side so trigger does not look heavy.
4. add length to trigger face if possible (max tolerance) by moving top part closer to trigger pin hole and increasing length (let user trim a little to fit particular pistol).

Great idea and awesome designs. I especially like the open “pill” version but think more meat on the section that holds the overtravel screw is important in order to properly support it (especially if you want to avoid feeling the screw “head” on the trigger face). For this reason, I suggest a smaller diameter screw hole on the version with the three vertical holes, and perhaps just the larger “pill” cutout on the very last version. I don’t know if it’ll save you any time or not, but fewer grooves on the face would probably still provide enough grip, although the wrinkle powder coat is perfect. Actually, the version with the wrinkle powder coat with a reinforced upper base, and a “pill” cutout or holes that leave enough meat for securing the screw would look perfect.

Cheers

Better and better

This is getting to look better and better all the time.

How about moving the overtravel screw to the bottom below the cutout? Then the screw does not affect skeletonizing. And I can narrow the trigger some. I want to have a smooth face and a little thinner trigger. I have done this to my wide, grooved stock 'combat' triggers (HK P7) and much prefer it. Then I would sand the edges to give it the 'melt' treatment. I also like the added trigger reach of this new version. I'll finish it off with Aluminum Black.

Are you powder coating the glossy red ones and the textured black ones? Could you make the red matte? You might want to try competition orange.
