The plastic tipped screws are most likely nylon tipped.

They are as common as brass tipped screws. They are good for softer metals, like if you use an aluminum trigger plate you want to use the nylon tipped screws because brass is harder then aluminum.

Silver tipped screws are less common but also easily available but cost much more.

Thanks for the info, I'm using the extreme rage roller trigger plate and not sure what material it is.

Is it light or heavy?

What part?
Brass is heavier than aluminum but it shouldn't be that significant.

I was hoping to have a much bigger update but a few things slowed me down slightly.

I did get all of these parts fully sanded down to 600 grit, ready for some 1200 and then to await polishing. I plan on getting everything to 1200 grit before spending some serious time behind the polishing wheel.

This was the slow down/major work. The ano on the pump guide was extremely thick and the 220 grit was not taking it off nearly fast enough. This is all I got tonight.

I did pick up some set screws that I'll be using on the pump handle to hold the pump rods in place. They're 10-32 to make everything easier with the same size/thread.

Also got a half block sled that will accept dual pump rods. I'm trading my current sled and a few bucks for it but it's already drilled and tapped for dual rods so that's one less thing I have to do.

Trigger plate is the same weight as any other one. It just has 2 smaller bearings on the top, same size bearings as a roller sear.
Also I would like to mention the springs that came with the roller setup are much lighter than those that were in the ANS frame.
Makes sense, trigger moves easier = less return force needed

Update on a few parts:
VA will be here Friday
Dual rod sled shipped out, hopefully here Friday/Saturday

Update for tonight

I got a lot of work done. Finished removing the ano from the pump guide and then began working on the body. I plan on doing a lot of re-shaping to the body. The lower tube is being changed a lot. The rear section I want to be a smooth tube as far as possible towards the front of the gun. I started to remove the large hump in the middle of the lower tube. The front section of the lower tube will stay mostly the same and will only change once I have the VA to work with the milling of that.
The top tube has started to be shaped. I plan on making the rear section, behind the feedneck, more tube shaped and taped down to the bolt rather than be so blocky as before. I started to shape it but there's a lot of metal to remove.
The lighter work was done with a course hand file. I used a high speed cutting bit on a dremel on the side humps and upper tube. I think I'm to the point where I'll switch back to a file and sand paper but we'll see. If I need to remove any other large amount of metal the dremel saves me hours of filing.

Oh, the humanity!!! I love the '05 Pro Stock bodies, which makes it a bit hard to watch; but I'm staying tuned to see where this goes and where your vision lies. Props either way for taking a file to that body. Watching stuff like this being done by hand is awe inspiring.

I'm gonna assume its steel then if it weighs as much as the benchmark trigger plate. Use the brass tipped acrews then
