    Decided to try a flat trigger. It's my first trigger install and isn't perfect but I'm happy with it so far.

    What is the attraction to flat triggers? Is it just aesthetics or a longer trigger reach?

    Consistent pull no matter where you pull from the face of the trigger.....according to Quack. I have shot a bunch of his and I didn't particularly care for the feel. Lots of guys love them. Just not my cup of tea.

    That is also true of a curved trigger, the movement of the trigger face is incidental to the actual movement of the trigger bow which is captured in a channel keeping its movement in a linear plane. No matter where you place your finger on the trigger face the bow only moves one way- rearward in a straight line.

    The flat faced trigger is for looks only, and like hokie..not my thing.

    The "better" feel is a mind game....................

    Of course this does not apply if you are pulling the trigger with a feathered ducks wing.....:supergrin:

    not a mind game when one's trigger finger isn't centered or perpendicular to a curved trigger.

    The trigger is captured, it can only move one way (actually two ways) straight back or straight forward, there is no way the placement of the moving appendage on the trigger face alters the movement of the bow which moves the sear which releases the hammer. there is no pivot point of the trigger so you can't improve leverage by placing your wing on a different spot on the trigger face.

    Hilton is really high on the flat trigger and he's a dude that knows what he's talking about. I'm pretty confident he is not saying this just to sell more triggers...

    "As already noted, the flat trigger provides a consistent feel wherever your finger may hit the trigger. Since the 1911 trigger moves straight to the rear, it makes a lot of sense for the trigger to present a surface that moves the same way. The flat trigger concept on a 1911 is not new, my competition guns from the early 90's all had them. What we have done is to revamp the execution to make it more suited to duty/carry use. The full width trigger bow is very durable, and the fixed hidden overtravel stop will not wander once the trigger is set up."

    that still does not change the plane of movement of bow
