an improvement on logic boy's answer:
pin type:
block trigger:https://www.instructables.com/id/K_NEX-GUN/
true trigger:https://www.instructables.com/id/The_El_Diablo_Assualt_Pistol_R_45/
sear trigger:https://www.instructables.com/id/SR_commado_v1/

slingshot type:
sniper (light sear):https://www.instructables.com/id/SR_V2/
tomboyrme trigger (specialised sear):https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-carbine/

and if you want to be picky, the trigger on the corner crossbow is considered a high tension sear trigger. and the counter-tension trigger i showed is an outer mech, the other ones are inner-mechanisms.

Sipriani does not have a sear trigger. It has a slingshot ratchet trigger.
