I noticed some very small stress cracks in the trigger plate after banana bending to fit the stock~ so I toted it to a my trusted collision center to weld a small bead on each side...he did goodt!

then a few minutes on the dewalt sander, and then some filing~

then a hour or so of inletting~

almost there....needs tweeking on the curve, and now to start inletting the guts of the lock... :hmm:
then that tweeking of the geometry of both triggers working right....now where did tomtom go?...he's the expert on fitting set triggers!

A dewalt sander??? :-o I thought you were strictly a file and chisel guy!

Well, as long as your stinky shop foreman lets you get away with it! ;) :rotflma: :bigrin:

Seriously - great work!! SW

castings often have imperfections - generally the flawed ones get recycled , as to the chores ahead of you - i can only say your a better man than me with a chisel
