so that is the same trigger system used in the Chaser

the front trigger screw does nothing more then push the sear down and the farther it is screwed in the farther the sear lift and shortens the  hammer engagement

the rear screw can be made to be what trips the sear but the 3mm  in length one  is too short, 6mm screw with and 2mm bearing ball will give you some adjustment

if you do nothing with the pins which just fall out, a trigger stop is a great over travel fix and put between the front and back trigger screw area 

the sear is hard as hell and needs to be torched and drilled for a 3mm x 6 to 8mm in length grub screw

the pins are way under sized I ended up using 2.5 mm drill ends but they have to be hand fit and with some RC aluminum shims the trigger was no longer  sloppy

so with a light sear spring and all of the hand fitting and such the trigger movement is light and down to 1.5mm in total movement

the one thing about the trigger setup, you can just do the work on the table, twisting the screws and watching  and  feel what is happens

but these are just ideas but they are proven ideas

Thanks for the tips!  Some of those things I have done and though of, but some I had not considered 😎  the screw with a bearing does sound like a great idea.  I'll have to fiddle with it some more!
