    Which is your preference? I have an arched MSH right now on my SA milspec but I think I would prefer a flat MSH.

    whatever works better for you.
    the flat works for me.

    now if it's looks alone, i would go with flat since i have a flat trigger and the world is flat too.

    I've always liked the feel and the way it points of a short trigger and an arched housing. This is the set up I like for point shooting.


    Though the flat and the long trigger do seem to be better for target shooting.

    I prefer flat, but own many GI replicas and real USGIs with arched and love them.

    Here's a few...

    I also have this full house custom build from EGW with an arched MSH.

    The flat is way more comfortable to me. I feel like I have better control of the pistol.

    i just put in the wilson combat V-grip MSH in my champion operator. i like it a lot. it's good if you're not %100 with either the flat or arched one.

    Honestly, I have small hands. I thought about changing the MSH or trigger, but its very easy to reach.

    I shoot mostly with the tip of my finger. The flat trigger and arched MSH on my EGW works fine for me, actually.

    Its an awesome shooter. :)
