But i like the idea of using an external front trigger system to hold/release the spear!

The annular notch weakens the spear. Some work arounds have ground a notch on one side only, but then you have to load the spear the right side up or the sear tooth has nothing to engage. A more recent approach has been to use a friction trigger based on a wedging roller where the spear is free of any notches and relies on a clamping or FZM arrangement. An example is the "Wasp" from Russia. This gun is a descendent of the earlier forward latching guns and made by the same plant.
