Well, mainly a Vertical ASA. They can be had on the 'Bay occassionally, but they're getting rarer.

If you're good with a dremel you can give it a 2mm trigger pull with all stock parts. I have mine setup this way, just grind off about 1/2 the step on the rear bolt and flatten out where the sear scrapes along the bottom to make it catch better. I had to shave just a hair off my safety, but it shoots and cycles perfect with the safety on. My brother got lucky with his grinding(did it wrong, but still works), safety off is semi, safety on is 3-5 shot burst until the sear catches

Yeah, but I don't have a stock hammer to compare it to. The step the red arrow is pointing to is what you grind down. The smaller the step, the shorter you need to pull the trigger. If you have a pair of calipers, the step on my bolt is .065" tall. To the right of the red arrow is where you want to smooth out/round off, that section pushes the sear back down when the hammer is re-cocking. The easier it hits the sear, the easier it is for the sear to latch and less likely it is to bounce and not latch on the smaller step. The green arrow is the section you grind if you took too much off the step and it won't latch all the time. You'll also need to grind off a bit from the trigger where it hits the sear. Next I pulled out the safety and ground it down little by little until the trigger pull was just long enough to trip the sear. I have a double finger trigger on mine, the pull is 3mm at the bottom, and 2mm in the middle(bottom of a single trigger). You may need to sharpen the edges of the sear a bit to latch the bolt better, and you can't make the trigger pull quite as soft as you can with a stock hammer, since the sear spring needs to be stiff so it will latch every time.

On my brothers gun to get it to burst fire, he slightly rounded the back edge of the trigger, where the sear hits. With the safety on, the sear hits the rounded edge on the trigger and gets lifted up to trip the sear again. With the safely off it shoots normal.

A lighter hammer will noticably lighten your trigger pull. But it will also lower your fps, so make sure you've got a good spring, or a spring kit or rva.

It is possible to drill the stock bolt, but make sure you can polish it properly after the fact.

My picture answers that question too Notice the 2 big holes in my hammer, one isn't stock. The hammer is very hard, so it'll take a while with a hand drill. Start with a small drill bit and go all the way through, then work you way up to a bigger hole. Use good drill bits and lots of oil or you'll burn up the bits for sure. The reason I did it was the lighter bolt will be easier on my ground down sear latch. I've been using my carbine like that for about 8 years, I never have any problems with it not latching.
