That was my original thought just move the mag catch holes down .1000" I can think of a good reason to move the trigger down, the slot cut threw the top of the trigger lets crap in the semi's and makes the trigger pull mushy. I can see this, but adding .1000" would make the trigger housing seem lop sided to me. The botom of the recever comes strait over across the bottom of the mag well. If you make the trigger frame hang .1000" lower it will look lopsided IMHO. Not sure what the plan is for this....

My thoughts were leve the mag catch location alone, that way the guys with semi mags can use the standard catch; and Damon alredy makes a lowerd catch. If he included one of those as an option in the package that would work good for the guys just starting out who have no mags, or for the old time WH owner that say has ten or so SA mags. It is not really cost effective to convert said mags back to FA, and a bitch to try and sell to get most of your money back.

just my .02 I'm excited to see how this will look. I'd like to have them ready to ship now so I can strip off my old frame and drop on a new one that utilizes a detachable butstock and has rocker piviot converted to work the bolt hold open. make using drums a lot easyer, not to mention clearing jams.

I would certainly encourage you to contact Damon over at http://www.tommygunner.com for the latest developments. I'm currently unaware of the status of those Trigger Housings, but Damon does offer conversions of standard '27A1 Frames. The best quality and pricing you won't find anywhere else.
