    After all these years of seeing pics of them, I got to hold a 1911 yesterday with a flat trigger. I really liked it.

    It may be some time before I get around to it - mainly because of the shipping costs... But I think I will eventually get one put on my Ed Brown. I checked with Brown today, and they will do it.

    I am waiting to but the new Beretta 92A1 in another month or two... But by the end of the year or next year, I may send it off to have it installed. I may go ahead and get some mods to the Brown while its there too. We'll see...

    Flat triggers are for folks without an end-mill... or a dremel sanding drum!

    :tongueout:

    I tried one, but it ain't for me... they do create a certain look, though. :supergrin:

    Slap that bugger in yourself! Unless you want other options from Brown as well I would install the trigger and save the money!

    a few.

    the 10-8 trigger bow is a little longer, so a little more work may be needed than just fitting the trigger shoe. to set the over-travel on the 10-8, you have to file the screw.

    the Wilson has a normal size trigger bow and has tabs to adjust take-up. the over-travel is set with a screw.

    Brown told me it was $25 + the cost of the trigger - but they never said if they had them or if I had to send 1 in.

    I want one the length of a regular 3 hold trigger. Some of yours looks a bit short - so, maybe I should get the 10-8?

    Quack, I have to admit.... I never, ever liked a KC. But with the sights and trigger, your gun is down right purdy!

    Ok, maybe a dumb question but I will ask anyway. What are the benefits of the flat trigger? Not trying to sound like a moron but this is the first I have ever seen one.
