technically every gun on sight is block trigger because every gun has something to block the firing pin

not all of them

ya your completely wrong, there are plenty of guns that use whats known as a sear system which is the complete opposite. oh ya and has anyone noticed that people are posting "grenade launchers" that look eerily similar to crappy block trigger guns

? sear triggers are still blocking the firing pin

no they arent they hold it back thats not blocking, block would mean to get infront of it.

this is exactly true......kind of. all knex triggers are technically BOTH block and sear, being that an object "blocking" the pin at some point must move in a "searing" action to allow the gun to fire. but the main point is like you said, a "block trigger" here is one that has something in front of the pin to hold it back, whilst a "sear trigger" is one that holds on a small latch type mechanism on the rear of the pin. sear triggers are notably more difficult to design, however they do produce much better results in firing. (they also very rarely break firing pins!)

its blocking its path by getting in front of at least some part of the pin

A trigger that is a block trigger blocks the pin from the front; this is the term that we have adopted. You're getting too literal with the term. Block- blocks from the front. Sear- holds from the rear.

the whole point of a term is that it is literal! I know wht they are

The whole point of the term is to identify a part of a gun. When playing tug of war, and you are holding the end of a rope with a knot in it (hand in front of the knot), you do not "block" it, you hold it. The same goes for a sear.
