    M82 Clone - Trigger / Trigger guard Help

    I've been building a M82 clone from a 1200 single shot. I've managed to finally find a M82 stock which obviously has a magazine well which necessitates a change of trigger guard.

    Where the problem lies is that the way the 1200 trigger is attached to the action is by a short screw at the rear of the trigger. This means the new trigger guard cannot use the rear hole to pull the action and stock together. The attached picture will hopefully make that clear.

    Google isn't much help other than I can find other PH triggers that use the same system to attach to the action. I do not have a real M82 to look at either .....

    After ideas.

    Steve, eyeballing the pic. and comparing it to the EMEI, the trigger assembly appears to be correct, it should be hung on a crosspin at the front.


    The rear screw on the '82 holds the magazine floorplate and trigger rear, as it pulls down the action rear tang, it is a stepped bolt that sits inside the trigger frame to clamp it as it pulls the trigger guard tight.


    If I have time I will copy the EMEI , send a Postal address, as it is too large to email, I will load it to a USB stick.

    Thanks mate, I suspected something like that. I'll sniff around for a bolt. The whole thing has been going for many years so I'm happy to get it right.
    PM with address on it's way.

    Info sent, just a thought on that rear screw, a sleeve would do the job.
