Also, would it not make sense to polish the hammer nose where it contacts the sears?

An overtravel stop screw is not needed on the Mini and not recemended.

The hammer nose is polished on every trigger job I do. I overlooked posting that photo when I did the series..

You might want to go to the introduction section and tell us a little about yourself. It is customary for newcomers to do so......................

I put one in mine, drilled through the pad on the back of the trigger guard9behind the rear of the opening for the trigger at the rear) at the right angle, threaded it and put an adjustable screw in it.
You must allow for a little additional movement of the trigger after it breaks being a semi auto.
When It's just right, I use red lock tite to hold it in place.
Easy to do, but don't try to adjust it too tight, leave a little overtravel.
It's not really necessary, but just about every rifle and handgun I have has one. Go too tight and it just might not work when you need it to, you have been warned.

I installed one as described, after seeing a video of it done on one of the TNP videos. It was well worth the effort and I must disagree with MasterP, it is very beneficial and highly recommended by any that have tried it.
