The objective of this task was to reduce the cost of the trigger spacer assembly by changing material and simplifying fabrication processes. A new material, polyphenylene sulfide, 40 glass reinforced, replaced the current die cast aluminum. The trigger spacer assembly was made using the injection molding process with the spacer pins inserted during the molding process. The secondary and assembly operations required on the aluminum spacer were eliminated.
