The release trigger in my BT-100 broke and, being as I bought it second hand, don't know the person who did the conversion. Do any of you recognize the work?

The pin at the top of the picture is supposed to be in the center of the half moon cut out in the hammer. When you set the trigger, the hammer is released, and caught by the hook with this pin. The pin broke off! Local machine shops say it will require a very small lather to make a replacement pin. I am hoping to simplify the process by sending it back to the original gunsmith. When working, it was a great trigger! Super fast with almost no creep.

Thank you in advance for any and all help locating this gunsmith.

I'm wondering, was it a big surprise when your release trigger didn't "set"?

I shoot a BT 100 with a release.

Good luck with your repair.

You bet!!! What was the shock was that even though the trigger would function as a pull trigger, I couldn't pull the trigger! It's heading for Phillips in Texas in the morning. Thank you all for the help!

The hammer may not have been allowed to travel far enough back to engage....I think mine would have and been like a pull trigger. Good luck.
