I need schematics of different Bullpup rifle's trigger groups

Hey guys, special request.

Do any of you have access to pictures, plans, or schematics of different bullpup rifle's trigger groups? Trigger, transfer rod, sear, hammer, etc.?

I'm looking for the AUG, FAMAS,Tavor, L85, SAR, or any other ones that you are aware of.

Any of you who have shot these weapons, what are your opinions on the triggers? I know they mostly suck, but which one was the least offensive.

I've got a gun that I've been working on, some of you are familiar with it, the time has come to actually try and build this darn thing. Action is taken care of. Barrel, gas system, no problem. Sights are figured out also.

Now I've got to figure out a bullpup trigger that doesn't suck. I just need some ideas.

Thanks

Increasing my options. Mechanically there just aren't a whole lot of simple ways to drop a hammer. And when the trigger is a foot from said hammer, it ain't pretty. I've got trigger design I can think of, but I need to see if there is a better way.

Electronic trigger would give a great pull, but this a simple utility rifle. No batteries in this beast.

The following link has a 'cut-away' black and white drawing of the Aug.

Something to get you started.

Dead, thanks. Just the kind of thing I was looking for.

Sam, 8 lbs, 20 shot, .308 with a 21 inch bbl. that barely meets legal minimum OAL. (shorter than an AR with a 16' tube) Almost totally based on existing parts, and a well proven design. Hopefully somebody other than the Brits will want one!

Or if they don't, I'll just end up with a very unique prototype rifle in the safe. Don't know unless you try.

Correia -

Are you going to document the process you're going through? I know there are tons of us out here with the same fantasy. It would be kind of neat to see what trials and tribulations you go through in project "Correia prototypes a battle rifle".

Sure Borf. I can do that. Gotta wait and see what happens first. Hopefully I can get a prototype done.

My last project/idea died as I discovered it was a great idea EXCEPT that the front sight would be about 4 whole inches above the barrel. (bottom ejecting bullpup based on M1 Garand). This one will work much more traditionally.
