CNC-Machined Disconnector for MKII and MKIII

609 mkii disconnector

This increased rigidity not only improves trigger pull but also will improve overall functioning as it will prevent any binding or interference that can be found on the prior design and factory design. This is due, in part, to variances in the factory frame tolerances.

The CNC-machined design also features an integral pin without the step found on the factory design. We have also machined the pin that comes in contact with the trigger plunge … (more details).
