custom parts

I figured this would be the best place to post this seeing that many of you probably have custom parts made for you...
I have been interested in having a blade style trigger made for my SuperNova E.T. and was considering going to a local machine shop to have it done.

does anyone know what they need to make a part from? I have been taking CAD classes and could make a drawing of exactly what I want, or I can do a 3D model if that would be better..
And roughly what kind of cost am I looking at?

Thanks.

I have been thinking about the exact same thing too, for my Nova ET as well. I am going to just figure out a design and try making one by hand, see if that works. It shouldn't be too hard, couple cuts with a band saw, polishing, and A LOT of filing But I wouldn't recommend that, I just have lots of time

I have thought about that also, but the way I want it, I know I couldn't make it to the tolerences I want.
I want it to fit tighter than the stock trigger to reduce the possibility of it binding due to the extended leverage point.
It HAS to be precise.

Yeah you couldn't do anything like that by hand...

I am basically going to copy the trigger I have in my gun but make it one of those blade triggers. It'll still have the same side-to-side action though...

Actually you probably could do that by hand.

Just get everything else but that the way you want it. Make sure you started w/ metal a little bit too big to fit, then sand it down by hand using emory cloth, a fine file, or even a sharpenind stone. The file or stone might insure you ge a flat surface as you remove the metal.
It might be time consuming though.
