Sorry mate.. Cheesy
No triggers on weapon props is just a major pet peeve of mine.. It seems that about three quarter of the projects posted here suffers from this fatal flaw..

The rifle looks pretty cool though. I really like the scope. The shoulder stock looks a bit.. too square perhaps?

The difficulty in triggers is getting one to trig correctly. I can make it ger very nicely, it's the snap-back-but-with-satisfying-clunk-on-trig that eludes me. So, I make do with chrome toggle switches. It's a nice rifle, I'd add a few more farkles and stain that wood. Might look quite good if it were cherry stained.

Why do they always obfuscate the screws?

The trig can be accomplished either with a momentary toggle switch, or by linking your trigger to a momentary pushbutton switch inside the workings like I did with my HPAV-1908.  I'm not sure of the exact shape of the trigger itself, but it should be fairly easy to figure out and fabricate something yourself.

It's not a skirt, it's a kilt; and ye ken why it's called a kilt?  Because I kilt everyone who called it a skirt.

You won't get far trying to argue semantics with an English major.

the trigger doesn't need to actually move, does it?

I usually just take the dremel and the cutoff wheel and cut a slot for the trigger to stick out of, up inside the trigger guard.

then I make a trigger with a little extra meat to stick up into the groove.

5 minute epoxy does the rest.

Mr Tinker, that's exactly how the trigger mechanism is handled on the DS-SMM. Of course, I dressed it up a little.
