Progress. 5 pull average. EGW hammer,sear and disco.

I bought a TR jig to try out but the feel of the stock cut from EGW isn't to bad. I haven't measured the pretravel yet. Over travel is ok and resets when the trigger is held back and the slide racked. I need to go thru my threads I have book marked from Logman the trigger wizard and make sure everything checks out ok.

After double checking the fire control group I didn't have enough pretravel to fully engage the half cock nothch. With some Logman advice I thinned the disco to .030 and shortend the sear to .400. Now I have a trigger pull of 3.5lbs and no hammer fallow with a crisp pull and reset with a fully functional half cock.

So I moved onto fitting the thumb safety. I went really slow as to not waste a good part on my first attempt to fit a thumb safety.

Everything passes all safety checks.

Looks like forward progress is being made, always a good thing!

You're about the same point I was in my Titan build where I started to feel like it would never get finished. Work and family were eating up all my free time so I got in the habit of boxing the entire project, tools and all, up after I finished working on it when I had a chance because it killed me to see it sitting on the bench half finished. Keep chugging along, the hill starts going down eventually!

Progress has been slow after the onslaught of monsoon season. I don't feel like sitting in 105° garage after being outside in the 110° heat all day. I've got these parts fit to a firm friction fit to keep the extractor from moving. Still need to add a small radius.

At least you're working on it. I'm still waiting for my barrel before I can go further with my build.

Looking good!
