Default Question about AR-15 Triggers??

Hi everyone,
I am new to the forum and wanted to get a feel for peoples opinions on something. I am a dental technician by trade and have figured out a way to make a stock trigger break like one that costs 3 times as much. My problem is getting my name out there. Does anyone have any suggestions on places where I can list this service?

Thanks much,
Jay

JE,

I seen my friend locutus has as much luck with the keyboard as I do! LOL! Not picking on you locutus I am with you brother. Computers keyboards and I do not get along! JE it is notdku if you had some problems finding it.
Also just some advise! One wants to be cautious when working with the triggers. They are only case hardened. So it too much is polished or removed one can go through the case hardening into the softer metal. Only a comment and good luck with your endevour!

I understand completely they are case hardened. I use a diamond polish to remove the scratches and believe me when I say it doesn't take of much of anything at all. I have done about 2 dozen triggers for local guys and friends and have had no complaints. Personally I have about 6000 rounds through 2 of my guns and no issues.

just remember polishing a sear surface can easily remove the thin layer of hardened metal making wear accelerate dramaticly. this can easily cause erratic bursts of automatic fire or runaways.

hope you got good insurance

I have about 6000 rounds though two guns without any problems. Its important to have the right tools for the job. I remove hardly any material. On another note, I have done roughly 2 dozen triggers over the past few years for local guys and friends and they to have never had a problem.

Just opened the lower and took a look at the hammer engagement on the sear. With all the rounds I put though it, it still looks as good as the day I polished it. When I have some more time I will take the assembly apart and snap some photos.
