I too am very interested in a new (not wobbly) trigger. If you’re taking requests... I think the skeletonized stock trigger looks wrong on this gun. The gun has a retro look, the stock trigger looks too modern.
If the trigger functions well I would want 3 (and maybe some good installation instructions)

Thanks

If you've never taken the trigger out, no worries, it's a piece of cake. The pivot pin is drifted out left to right (facing the read of the frame), and the action bar is a short roll pin. Takes about 2 min if you're being careful.

First version will be a basic, anodized aluminum non-adjustable, pricepoint around $40.

Planning an adjustable version after that, probably around $50.

You should jump on the fiber optic front sights. Triggers are going to keep me busy for the time being, and this pistol would benefit from a nice, bright FO sight.

I'll be releasing a metal trigger soon, should help out a bit. Disassembly is easy, just need to drift out a couple of pins.

Just an FYI, I'm down to our last 5. Probably will be a little while before the next run, metal anti-wobble triggers are the next item to run  8)

I hear there may be one in the works...



Specifically designed not to wobble, too...

I am officially sold out, and wanted to give the community a big

Thank You!

I hope we helped to drive up the interest in the pistol and this forum. The next item will be metal triggers coming Q4 this year or early Q1 next.

What part of NM are you in? I was stationed on the Missile Range for a couple years, very interesting place. Just over the Organ Mountains from Las Cruces, love the food culture there!

I thought I responded to this yesterday but...

Anyway, if they are the sights that Remington sells on their sight it may be that the point of aim will be the same as factory.
I bought the Remington fiber optic sights and the point of aim is still 4" low at 7 yards, which is what I saw with stock sights.
The good news is I was able to tighten my groups with the new sights.

Hrm, that's not good. Much easier to lower POI than to raise it. If you don't mind losing the R51 aesthetics on the rear sight, you could install a higher rear sight from another pistol (maybe a CZ) or find a really low front sight (big dot maybe, or again a CZ).

Is low POI a common issue? Higher rear sight could be another good aftermarket product.
