I have seen some of that nylon coated trace wire in fishing tackle shops – that would also probably do the trick. If you use pliers you can tie overhand knots to lock it off.
I've fixed a couple of broken trigger wires. I used trace wire that I bought from a fishing store (MIAS in Woodmeade, JHB). Remember to take along a piece of your origional trigger wire to get the right gauge. The wire is quite costly about R100 for 10m or so but that should last you a lifetime. You can also buy metal crimping sleaves at the fishing store, they should be at least 2.5 time the diameter of the wire your have but they're not costly items so if you get it wrong it's not a huge deal. Then you need to get your hands on a crimping tool and a set of wire-cutters. The actual replacing of the wires is pretty easy so I'm not going to go into detail.
Open hand, open mind...
