I've been contemplating machining my own trigger mech for my gun, because why not? I was curious as to what some things I should worry about are. I've been doing some research but I just want to make sure I've got everything. I'll post pictures when I start machining everything and have eerything drawn up (no cad software or anything...).
What are some big things to watch out for? Places to strengthen, things that aren't needed, and so on. I'm trying to simplify the trigger box here.

Drop the 45 degree sear completely. Its trash. If you're gonna make your own anyways, make a piston that is perfectly matched with a 90* sear.
The trigger box is already incredibly simple: 2 sears(trigger and piston), 2 body halves, springs for the sears and pins to hold it in. Most zero triggers sacrifice a safety. That's about the only thing you can simplify on them.
It's gonna be a very daunting task, to make something that will hold up, but it'll be rewarding when you can upgrade your rifle past 400 FPS.
