    so people are always asking why i prefer flat triggers.
    my response is because of how my trigger finger wants to sit on the trigger. If i grip the gun with my support (left) hand to fire, it sits straight across the trigger as opposed to the angle that my strong (right) hand trigger finger wants to naturally go.

    the trigger isn't longer at all. a flat trigger is the same length as the shortest part of a long curved trigger.

    Not by choice. His EGW had it when he got it.

    Worked great while I had it. I have a build going now that will have a flat trigger on it.
