The trigger is a lever used to set the lock in motion. Triggers are divided, according to their construction and the force required to draw them, into common and set or hair triggers; the latter are employed only in sporting arms. The force required to set off the trigger, if very great, may disturb the accuracy of the aim; if it be slight, the piece will be liable to accidental discharges. The trigger has a guard which protects the finger-piece from injury, and from accidental blows that might produce explosions.
