My question to you is what is wrong with the trigger hangers?
Pinned triggers require the action to totally removed from the stock for a thorough cleaning especially if you are in an area that is dusty. The trigger hanger allows the trigger to be removed without having to remove the barrelled action from the stock.
From a tool perspective, one would only need the hex (not allen) wrenches to remove the trigger and clean it off/out. With a pinned trigger system, you would have to have both the hex (again not allen) wrenches, pin punches and a driver to smack the punch.
In short, the hangers allow for a more thorough cleaning with fewer tools. I found this very important on a hunt in Colorado (the red gritty dirt got everywhere) and that is why I require that all my travel guns have trigger hangers.
BTW, did the bolt come from BAT with the relief cut in the bottom of it?
Have a nice day.
