Looking at building a wooden euro gun and just starting to look at where I can source trigger mechs, handles etc. It seems if your in the states you have endless choice, I’m in the UK which has nothing but buying from Europe is still reasonable. The only site I’ve found is Spearoworld.com who are based in Denmark, to be fair they carry pretty much everything I’ll need but just want to check if there are any other suppliers I should be looking at?

MVD sells its trigger mechs at their own website, mvd-retail.gr.

cool thanks for the reply and yeah seen they do a Handle and a trigger mechanism. Ideally I’m looking to emulate a Riffe euro gun so sometching like the AR15 style handle from neptonics would be ideal but seems difficult to get hold of in Europe

For trigger check ermessea. He is from Italy and he builds great trigger mechanisms, maybe the best you can buy! They have rollers in the mechanism to reduce friction and have amazing feel even when heavily loaded. I use them on my builds and they are fantastic!

I bought a few of these trigger mechanisms; they are top notch!

Ermes-sub double roller trigger. I have one with wings that I’ll put in a gun some day and one that was a swap for the original in the Pathos and it’s such a super, super light pull even with two hot bands. (It can take much more).

I haven’t built a wood gun but I’ve read a fair bit of DIYers saying a trigger with wings is easier to align as you can shim it to get it aligned with the track.
Harder to get a pinned trigger perfectly located.

An alternative though unproven is the winged Salvimar Trigger that they are now selling as a standalone part - you can find the name in their latest catalogue and then find it on diveinn. It’s likely a whole lot cheaper than the Ermes DR. It will “only” have one roller but a Salvi rep told me it’s the same geometry (just with wings) as the trigger in the new Hero gun and supposedly that trigger is really nice. The generation before (the Metal gun) had a trigger that was crazy hard to pull hence why I reached out to Salvi to clarify which one was the basis for their winged trigger.

I still think you should do better than emulating. E.g. Riffes aren’t particularly optimized in terms of having the handle high or maximizing band stretch. You can eek a bit more out of it for sure. But AR15 might hamper that, though I’m not sure. Maybe just think of it as an optimized Riffe tribute;-)

Sure, I’ve gone for a reverse mech so that’ll give me a bit better band stretch optimisation, although in real terms it will just give me a 90 in a slightly smaller form factor (which will be ideal for UK waters).

the reverse mech I’m using doesn’t need a huge amount of stock height so hopefully I can keep the gun low profile which will effectively bring the handle higher I suppose.

The reason I’m basing on a riffe euro is that I love the square stock with the radiused edges.. just looks so simple and clean
