need to make a cad for a custom tippmann trigger

Im having a bit of trouble making a cad for a tippmann A5 triggger

I got these designs from tippmann but the machinist im working with needs deminsions and such,




So i need some help making the top part of the trigger in cad with dimensions, and i can build the bottom part of the trigger which will be custom.

All help is welcomed, and pm me if you think you can do a good job and well work out compensation.

The easiest thing to do would probably be to just borrow a trigger so he can take some measurements.

Aww, this would kinda be fun to do, but I recently formatted my HDD again and AutoCad is toast for now.

He might just want a CAD view off of it. Doesn't mean he is going to use a cnc.
I would help you bud, but i'm starting CAD tomorrow.

Well hes going to be making between 50-100 triggers for me, so i doubt much is going to be done by hand.

Do you need a trigger to borrow? Or would you like me to measure? Either way I may be able to help.

With the Program type For instance i am familiar with Inventror pro 10
there is a tool you can use that dimensions out all of the lengths/curves/angles etc.
half of the video has pictures with dimensions so you can see what I mean

Why would you make a metal single trigger for a Tippmann? For the price you would have to sell them at to even break even, one could probably buy a double trigger. Also what benefit will the plastic have over metal? Durability?

Rufus Dawg makes aluminum triggers for Tippmanns? Where?

And I'm not sure if you just caught what you said, but you just said that plastic is lighter and easier to tool...

Well i first got the idea talking with some scenario guys at castle conquest, first how many highend guns have plastic triggers? (none that i know of) Thats because most people dislike plastic just because of what it is plastic. And most scenario guys that iev discussed the idea with would like the feel of a metal trigger much more then a plastic because it feels more "real" if you understand.

Also i have been talking with some pretty large retailers for scenario/tippmann gear, and they seem to be pretty interested.


And also rufus dawg only makes plastic triggers, APE makes Metal A5 triggers but they only work in the egrip and cost 75$ and Tech T makes a metal double trigger for the 98 once again only for the egrip, so their is deffiantly a market void.

All im looking for is someone to help me cad and posibly manufacture,

Not to make you mad but the Tech T fang trigger works on all 98's not just egriped ones. I know because I have one one my all mechanical 98C and their website says so.

Also I know guys that would buy a metal single trigger for their A5's

If it is all about the real "feel" then I understand that, but in terms of functionality, they will be identical to plastic triggers.

Don't be so cheap. Go buy one so you can measure it. With that number you're obviously planning on selling these at a profit so the cost of the sample trigger is just part of the project. By the time you get one mailed to you by a friendly PBN'er you could buy one and have someone CAD it up and be partway towards production.
