Iron hardened trigger (self forged, question: The most crossbows i came across had steel triggers, is iron suitable to?)5.

I make a drop down hinged piece like you show in your excellent drawing but I make it to only hinge forward from the engaged (down) position.
The tickler can always be bent a little to obtain the ideal fit and the flex in the long piece of metal will be enough to keep it there until pushed by your finger.And there really is no need for a spring to keep the tickler engaged with the nut.
