Here's a rare part. It's a small frame stainless trigger with the stop-screw in the trigger itself. I've never seen one like this in a stainless or blue gun from the factory. Have You?

Could it be like the one on my 15-2? I posted pics of this one a few years ago, and the smart guys on here figured it was not stainless, but it is sintered metal. It is a fairly early 15-2. PP5-Medium.JPGImage Enlarger

This appears to be from an earlier production 15-2 that had the overtravel adjustment built into the trigger. Later versions of the 15-2 had the overtravel adjustment as part of the frame.

Very unlikely that this is a stainless component

I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman "Were is the Self Help Section?" She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose.

lonwolf, It sure looks like yours. Yours is the first one I have seen on a frame. The one I have was acquired with a number of other stainless parts, notably including some engraved cylinders and shrouds. I did sell a couple of the triggers to members of the forum (before I realized they were somewhat unique). All of the parts were new and never had been installed on a frame. The triggers and hammers are exactly the same (except for the overtravel screw) as the stainless parts on my other 715s. I am guessing that all of the stainless triggers and hammers on 715s were sintered parts, but they are definitely stainless as opposed to steel in the white. I am not an expert, so it may be incorrect or inexact to call sintered parts stainless, but it does seem logical to do so. They certainly have the usual properties of stainless just as other 715 parts do. They do polish quite nicely if you are willing to put in the effort.

Came across this article and agree with Snake-eye about "Stainless triggers and hammers too" being sintered metal. Also known as Metal injected Molding, or MIM". That was something that Karl Lewis pioneered I think. He may have used it on the Colt Trooper Mk111 too, but DWs have used it from the begining. Powdered metal injected in a mold and heated to the point of fusing together but not melting. They are heat treated and only the surface is hard. That is why we don't file the sear of DWs. Yes, it is stainless but still MIM. I think early ones had nickel perhaps. Without using MIM the cost of Dans would have been much higher. Forged and hand filed parts are very time consuming. And it made Dans a modular Firearm with drop in parts, for the most part.
