    externally trigger are just that, put the safety on & switch the selector. The internal ones , the trigger must be removed and the tree shifted by hand.

    External selectable trigger has selector behind the trigger, internal selectable trigger has the selector on the lifting tree. Generally external selectable trigger is better for Sporting Clays, and internal selectable is good for top single combos.

    The biggest advantage of internal selectable trigger is, when you change firing orders, you are more likely to move the inertia block so the gun will not double on you if you forgot to set the safety first.
    It's a lot cheaper, and the trigger guard has a more graceful curve on the non-external selectable trigger group. IMO.

    Steve: Post a picture of the older MX8 trigger with the machined area where the sear and hammers meet. Maybe that migh also explain a difference.

    Whiz, unfortunately I don't have an older trigger to show.

    The only one I saw recently is the one from another person's MX-15 for sell thread, that gun has an older ('60s~'early '70s) trigger group.
