L96 trigger box question

2815 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  Cheese Man
Ok, so I am getting a blank wooden stock for my l96. I will be cutting out all the holes and such.

I am wondering, I will need some sort of trigger guard for the gun, but on the l96 trigger, some random pin is just sticking out. Would cutting the pin off effect the performance of the gun? I know the pin is used at the TOP of the trigger box to guide the spring, so would removing the bottom end effect the gun in any way?

If you still are not sure, refer to this pic:

I want to remove the bottom portion of the set pin.

If it turns out that I cannot remove it, what would you suggest I do as a trigger guard for the gun?

The only thing I could see happening is your trigger box cracking and if you plan to take it out it will be very hard to get back behind the spring guide or if it falls out... but if you leave it in you could just bend a piece of metal and drill a hole big enough so the end fits through it.
Yea, I am thinking I might have to custom make a wood guard to fit around it. Which is going to suck, seeing as the wood grains are going to look different.

I just thought of something: taking an old rifle magazine, hollow out the top, and literally glue it on the bottom of the gun. I would make it so that part of the trigger box that sticks out would be completely covered inside the magazine.

Now that I think about it, I think that will work best and make the gun sexy as all get out.
I am just afraid the rifle might look too real if I use a real rifle magazine to cover it up, but cops in my area are pretty cool...
