    I have heavily calloused hands and it seemed as I had more contact in the upper and lower of trigger which shifted as I pulled the trigger instead of the center of the trigger.

    Also I had a fair amount of both side to side and up and down play in the factory trigger.

    Installed a Caspian trick trigger Sat night,Much better side play and almost no up/down now.

    The pad of my finger is now able to depress the trigger much cleaner.

    Just shot it,MUCHO BETTER:faint:I'm sold on it.

    I don't care how well they work, those flat triggers look goofy as hell.

    I don't like the looks either, Jeff.

    Some do, however.

    You modified your gun? But you could end up getting prosecuted! Or is that only with Glock triggers?

    Yeah, not a fan of the aesthetic, either. I've never shot one, though, and I'm a big fan of function over form. So, if it feels better to you - great!

    I guess they work for some, but they do look funky. I'm still unsure of the problems that require these since my round finger always hits the center of the round curve of the trigger like all the other round triggers out there. :dunno: What kind of grip are you using for those with the square triggers? Thumbs forward is the way I shoot all semi-autos and my thumb rides the safety on 1911s.

    I like It because I have long fingers and it hits the trigger at the same place every time,,

    Round is good for double action I like straight for single action..

    Just to be clear,I'm not really arguing with anyone that has one of these triggers, I'm just trying to figure out it's use. I have long fingers too but the standard round/long trigger has me hitting center every time, even drawing quickly from a holster. The quack sickness continues :tongueout:

    The myth applies for Glock triggers only.

    Yep, what he said. :supergrin: That's why my Colt got one and the one for My RIA is on the way. They look different, but feel great.

    Got and installed my Wilson Combat flat trigger today. These really grow on you once you man up and give them a try. :whistling:
