Triggered.....

Triggers and sears installed in the housings. Next will be to install springs, adjustment and set screws. The triggers are adjustable for pull and seat engagement. The larger house in the housing is for viewing the sear/trigger engagement.

Also, the pivot point for the trigger is towards the rear. This reduces the amount of travel at the blade of the trigger, but amplifies the travel at the front. This reduces felt creep. The forces acting on the trigger from the mainspring to the sear are perpendicular to the pivot point of the trigger. Again, to reduce drag, creep and helps make the trigger more crisp

It's fascinating watching a master machinist at work.

There are many who could do the machine work from drawings.
Very few who can do the design, then build it.
Impressive work.

Shot of few videos filing up one of the sidelevers. This just gets the lever to shape and ready to start polishing.

Do you use chalk on the files to prevent clogging and, if so, how often?

On the roughing files I used in the videos, no chalk. They don't tend to clog. In fine files I do chalk them. Not always, as some materials don't tend to load them, but as often as necessary when they do want to load. Sometimes every few strokes.

Making more progress on the sidelever actions. Safety is installed and operates smoothly and crisp. It blocks both the sear and trigger.

You are building 5 of these it seems. Do you have homes for all of them? I'm not angling to buy one, but I am curious if you are building to order or have specific plans for all 5.

They sure look good to me.

The 5 I am building are all sold. Two will have barrels installed before leaving.

I will start another run in three weeks. One of them is an order, the other 4 are not spoken for yet.

Filed up the trigger guard and trigger. Sure makes a difference to add some shape
