I saw the "Mini-GTX" thread a bit lower on the page and I do belive that you could make a "solid" insert for Gamo Triggers. Just loking at you picture in the thread lower on the page, and with no experience with springers or their trigger groups I have made a crude drawing with paint that might be useful:



As far as I can tell neither of these would really sacrafice what I think are the important lines on your "Mini" and they are a bit more "solid". If it would work maybe you could even mass manufacture these peices in a cheap but strong enough metal (Aluminum might work?) and still be able sell the product at a cheap price? How much does a small block of aluminum cost, because if Steve thinks it has a posablility and no one else wants to try it in their trigger then I guess I will.

Best Regards,
Justin

#1. As I mention in a thread below, this trigger thing is a perfect example of a problem where "The devil is in the details." Because any and all such detail is obviously missing from your sketches, I have no idea if you're on the right track or not.

#2. Go for it. Aluminum is cheap.

#2.5 (Okay, I lied ) Please be careful.

I hope you don't mind, I borrowed you picture:







Is that better?

I'll be using my Shadow or CF-X, and when I find a "solid" peice that works in the trigger nicely I'll let you guys know, .

...the "tintype" approach may be looking a lot better.

If I can't figure out a "solid" design then its ok because I'll just make a "Mini" while I'm in the trigger. Either way I try to look at most bad situations and failed projects as a learning experience, a sort of "What don't kill ya makes ya stronger" type of thing .

Justin

like this, it's very small but it works great.
I might have to make a few more for myself.
