    come with a 1911 style, solid trigger? Im no gunsmith, but I would imagine that even a DA/SA gun could use this type of trigger that pulls straight back rather that up and back like the typical trigger, except the first pull would be longer, like a standard DA/SA.

    I mean, that type of trigger, IMO, is what makes the 1911 so desirable. I think that it minimizes the shooters mistakes, and I was just wondering why more guns don't use that type of trigger.

    Does it really pull straight back? Or does it just give that impression because of the shape? It's such a short pull you wouldn't notice one way or another.

    Edit: just looked at my gun dissasembly app... Lol. It does indeed pull straight back. On a single action, I hardly think it makes a difference. But it might be nice on a DA... I could be wrong, but I think the infamous VP70 has a straight back DA trigger, and we know how much everyone liked that trigger.

    Ha...very true on thhe VP...and the hi point has the same trigger...so I guess its just the 1911 itself. But I am an average at best shooter...and my "thing" is bullseye shooting from 15 or 25 yars...and I feel like whenever I shank one with a 1911...it still manages to hit the target due to the trigger. And the only 1911 Im even running is a GI 1980 style(remingtion 1911) and it still just feels perfect.

    Definitely straight back on the 1911.

    There is no pivot.

    In a true 1911 it's straight back. One of the improvements the Ballester-Molina incorperated was a pivoting trigger.

    The pivot is almost a neccessity to use leverage in easing the trigger pull on a hammer fired semi. with out the fulcrum and lever working the trigger pulls (like on the VP70) would be unmanageable for a DA/SA

    Not everyone needs a 1911 trigger. Especially those that actually know how to shoot. :whistling:

    I must admit, I like (correct me if I get the term wrong) stage in a trigger. Like a Glock, or Beretta 92's single-action.

    I don't like a long DAO pull, however (though I have two guns with it, but it works for pocket carry).

    Having a 1911, it's a nice trigger, but I don't like it better than my staged, some would say slop, triggers.

    No one is so good that they couldn't benifit from a better trigger.
    Rob Leatham and all the other competitors use guns with MUCH lighter than normal triggers.
    I am sure you are not saying you can shoot better than these guys.....
    People on this Forum really do crack me up!

    I think the new Heizer Defense Doubletap has a straight pull DA trigger. Obviously I've not tried it to know if it's any good yet.
