How to: Put a timmy trigger in yer Legend!!

You asked for it so here it is...

Do it at your own risk.

1- Get a timmy trigger, 1/8" drill bit, center hole punch, files (optional), dremel (optional), safety glasses.
Safety First...


2- Put legend trigger on top of timmy trigger, lining it up so that the flat parts are even.


3- Take a center punch and put it through the Legend trigger's pin hole. Hit punch with hammer.

This is what you will end up with (look for the little dot)


4- Put your Timmy trigger on a Mill/Drill press. Clamp is down firmly, but not too tight (don't break it). Make sure it is square. To do this I used a 1-2-3 Block a clamping kit. I made sure that the mark from the center punch was over a hole on the 1-2-3 block.



5- Line it up so that a 1/8" drill bit will go through the little mark from the center punch.



6- Drill a hole.
End product is this


7- Put the trigger in a vise (or if you don't have a mill you could always do it with a file or a dremel). It doesn't need to be squared or anything



8- Cut off the top part of the trigger. It can be even with the flat part of the trigger but it doesn't have to be. Your choice. After I did it I took a file and rounded it off a little bit.


9- Enjoy your new trigger.




I used the screws that were on the timmy for adjustment screws. The top trips the switch and the bottom is the trigger stop. THe middle is nothing.

You may or may not need to get new grub screws. Mine worked (barely).

I will be making a tutorial for doing a strength adjustment too.

I don't use ball bearings. I probably could, but I don't know if there is enough room.

Yup, the top one trips the switch, the bottom one is the trigger stop. The middle one does nothing.

You could probably, but i'm not entirely sure because the top of that trigger isn't flat, and I don't know if the bearing would get in the way of the hole you have to drill.

drilling carbon fiber is real sketch and iffy, i have drilled through some for a part or two on my road bike and it was cleaner than drilling throuh metal but then another time same bit and drill and all but diff brand it splinter and got nasty quick and was a pain to save the piece.

If someone could mod a techna, imo carbon fiber is the ****, that would be the hottest legend, trig wise for wure at least. The technas look to be very well wrapped and tight, have only seen pics not in person. How much do they run I may have to throw some cash in the wind and try it out, got a feelin they aint cheap though
