Emek over travel stop

I like over travel stops on most triggers without a kick, especially pneu-mags. The Emek seemed like a good candidate. Turns out the trigger is aluminum. It is pretty easy to drill and tap. I used a 4-40 set screw, 3/16" long. It could take a 6-32, I think. The trigger pin on mine was installed from the left side, even though the drawing in the manual looked like it was from the right.

I got to try it out on a few hopper loads. It does what I wanted.

I just put one in mine... I used a 6-32 setscrew, there's enough material for one.

Considering any pre-travel? I don't like the geometry for a set screw. Kind of thinking about a spacer of some sort.

I tried to make a two stage trigger spring, but it was difficult to adjust and I couldn't get a distinct take-up. The pre-tension for the trigger return is strong compared to the force on the three-way. I can't see the point in increasing the pull for an artificial "break".

I was thinking about it but so far I'm happy with the overtravel screw... there's really too much in the factory setup, and a setcrew just gives me a positive stop where I was ending my trigger pull anyways.

I'm not going for super-speedy anyways, just wanted to clean up the trigger feel a bit.

Same. It has room for it, but its not quite worth the effort for pre-travel.

This is a great idea, Spider. I changed out the return spring on mine to make the trigger pull softer, but I never thought about this. I'll have to give it a go.

Although...

Now I'm wondering if it would defeat the whole purpose of my EMEK purchase. The whole reason I bought mine was to have something so stupidly simple, reliable, and good that a new player could borrow it and have a blast. That new player probably wouldn't appreciate a better trigger, though. He wouldn't even know the distance.

If I was using one myself, though, I'd be all over this.

Well then, you just need another one to mod for yourself.

I also added a POPS and a sight rail, but the rail may give way to a 3D body. I might like some finger grooves in the grips (3D?). It also wouldn't be a tragedy if I decided to paint it...

Fortunately, just because it works doesn't mean I can't "fix" it.

I'm mainly curious if I can modify the Emek to be as comfortable and natural to point and shoot for me as my automags. I may have to put some lead in the foregrip.

I'm actually holding out for a double-trigger version, but if that doesn't happen soon, I might try to make one myself.
