I am scrounging up parts to build some additional dedicated lowers for 22 conversions. Which style of mainspring housing do you prefer? They are not inexpensive so I would prefer to build what most people like rather than what I like.

I tossed a couple front strap and trigger pull options in also. Multiple choice is allowed!

Thank you for your time.

Hand size and natural alignment in hand to eye decide MSH

Checkering, stiples, or tape, any one for traction.

Trigger must be extreme quality. Then weight does not matter.

I just changed from an arched to a flat on my wadgun to accommodate Dick Horton grips. I think most wrap arounds will need flat.

I have big hands so the arched backstrap helps me to keep the pistol from wondering around between shots in timed and rapid.

If you are building lowers, why not install the MSH and trigger per the customer specs? Given the number of choices in your poll and the likely number of responses you will get, IMHO you will get so few hits on some of the choices the data will be meaningless. Narrow you poll down to maybe three choices. Better yet, just build the lowers and drop in the customer specified MSH and trigger length. Adjusting the pull is easily done by the shooter as there are a number of good Youtube instructions.

As far as trigger weight setting use 2.5 if you want points in the 22 matches or use 3.5 if you want to bring up your centerfire scores.
There is no free lunch.

There is no such thing as just dropping in parts such as mainspring housings and triggers. And as far as you tube videos and adjusting trigger pull, to each his own. In my opinion the sear spring manipulation is a very small part of adjusting trigger pull.

There is no such thing as meaningless data!

Jack has the right idea, trigger weigh is almost irrelevant if the trigger job is quality work. But some people want a specific weight.

Thank you for the constructive feedback.
