The trigger was sightly worn on my Winchester 1895 and a new one would cost about $70
So I decided to try and fix the old one. I added some metal with a welder, roughly shaped the "new" metal with a bench grinder, hand filed the trigger to the final shape and polished out the file marks with some very fine steel wool. I think I did pretty good and saved some $$.
Now my question is should I heat treat this? The trigger does not receive any recoil, spring tension, or any other "forces", its just a link between your finger and the sear. The only pressure it gets is from your finger pressing the trigger.
How would I go about doing this? I googled it but theres lots of different methods...
I figure Ill put a pic of my repair here too. It was flat where the point on top of the trigger is.
