Thanks!
For a while I was going to try to have a brass freak front made for this. But this one is much cheaper and achieves the look. If I have a performance issue I may go down that road.

My plan regarding the trigger pull from the outset is to time it pretty loose, but I just want something a little more "positive" feeling in between as if I had a spring loaded ball bearing for a trigger stop. I wonder if I can find a threaded detent small enough....

Maybe use the spring and ball from a safety?

the best thing to do is to find a older trigger plate, that has a slotted timing plate and use a timing rod that is a "circle" and not a flattened rod. use a stock 99 4-way switch and not a Bomb or Quickswitch or any short throw 4-way. you will also want to adjust the sear lug so that the hammer drops before the switch is activated.

if i understand what you are wanting, all you have to do is set the timing to be on the ultra-conservative side. you are basically wanting to do the opposite of what everyone tries to do.

as was mentioned, just use the older slotted trigger plates.

Anything that would cause the trigger to stop when being pulled is going to stop it from comming forward as well. Well maybe not anything, I'm sure something can be worked out but the ball detent method certainly would. You would end up having to push the trigger forward.

Good point, beastly. I wonder if a trigger return spring with enough tension could manage that issue without causing too much stiffness.

Many rifle safeties use a ball under a small leaf or wire loop spring. The ball falls into a small hole on the plate that moves underneath. Hardware stores often have a selection of single steel ball bearings. If you can find a place for the ball and spring in the side of the frame, you could drill a smaller hole in the trigger plate for it to land in. Start the trigger plate hole small.

You would need to set up your trigger pull first. If you think it still needs a detent, you would set up the detent next and then mark the plate at the tripped position through the detent hole, then drill it. If the detent could fit under the grips, it would be extra fancy and harmless.
