Useless Click Trivia

I've now measured the movement of six sears in five different Hi-Powers during the "Click-Test".

Three different 1985 Browning made guns and two FÉG.

I measured:

A: From the top of the hammer notch to the top of the sear when fully cocked and engaged.
B: From the top of the hammer notch to the top of the sear after the trigger was pulled with the safety on.
The difference between these measurements is how far the sear moves.

C: From the top of the sear to the top of the hammer notch with the sear released.  This plus the first measurement gives the total travel required for the gun to fire.

The difference in click movement and sear release is how much travel remains once you've pulled the trigger with the safety on.

Browning #1:                      A: 0.014"; B: 0.003"; C: 0.034".  0.011" click movement, 0.048" to release (0.034").
Browning #2:                      A: 0.016"; B: 0.004"; C: 0.039".  0.012" click movement, 0.055" to release (0.043").
Browning #3 (Old Sear / Old Safety):    A: 0.014"; B: -0.006"; C: 0.031".  0.020" click movement, 0.045" to release (0.025").
Browning #3 (New Sear / Old Safety):  A: 0.013"; B: -0.010"; C: 0.038".  0.023" click movement, 0.051" to release (0.028").
