    I purchased a large parts lot recently, and inside were many of these triggers. I can't find any information about them anywhere. No markings, and they are unlike anything I have ever seen. My eternal gratitude to anyone who can ID them. I have been losing sleep over this. :)

    They appear to be...

    the early type of Ruger M77 trigger, which was fully adjustable for engagement, weight of pull and overtravel. The engagement screw is missing from the top of the triggers (it connected the split halves of the trigger, and made it possible to increase or decrease sear engagement).

    (Three days later) I guess he was able to get back to sleep.

    You are welcome...

    and I'm glad you got the reply. The original Ruger M77 trigger design really was an excellent one - but the lawyers made them change it, apparently. Something similar happened to the original Ruger #1 trigger design, with equally disappointing results.

    You said "random triggers" and the first thing I thought of was that patent trigger that guaranteed the target shooter a "surprise break" because it did not pull the same two shots in a row.

    I've seen...

    a good many triggers that actually worked that way, but never knew there was one designed purposely for random function. Who made such a thing?
