Update on the VG1-5 The new trigger guard

With mainly doing the hand fitting on the rifle we are correcting a few problems that have come up. This issue is the trigger guard. The original design that we had did not have the correct look and was actually to close to the trigger it self.

The solid models for the new design trigger guard.

IMG_5505sThe second style increased the space for the trigger, but the angle of the stock lower support was incorrect and the lower stock support was now to short.

IMG_5522sThe older style trigger guard required a great deal of work to fit up and the angle was still not correct.  Neither was the actual diameter size.
