The Mrod Pistol trigger is not quite wide neough, and I had a trigger shoe needng a home.

Took the trigger blade out, and clamped it to the workbench and broke out a file to narrow it down enough for the shoe to fit over.

No dice, the trigger blade is _very_ hard and the file barely cut it, only taking that blackish coating off

Same files have cut down a few other triggers were rebuked. Guess its time for the Dremel

I'm putting the finishing touches on one I made for my 2240 carbine.

that trigger is cast steel. Don't try to hold it with a Vise Grip or something similar, it fractures easily when it's Gorilla'd

On the ones I've seen (sold in paintball shops) it looks like you could back out the set screws and make the slot wider.
