Which is your preference? I have an arched MSH right now on my SA milspec but I think I would prefer a flat MSH.

whatever works better for you.
the flat works for me.

now if it's looks alone, i would go with flat since i have a flat trigger and the world is flat too.

I've always liked the feel and the way it points of a short trigger and an arched housing. This is the set up I like for point shooting.


Though the flat and the long trigger do seem to be better for target shooting.

I prefer arched for a short trigger, flat for a long.

I prefer flat, but own many GI replicas and real USGIs with arched and love them.

Here's a few...

The flat is way more comfortable to me. I feel like I have better control of the pistol.

i just put in the wilson combat V-grip MSH in my champion operator. i like it a lot. it's good if you're not %100 with either the flat or arched one.

Arched with a long trigger and regular thickness grips. I got big hands.

Honestly, I have small hands. I thought about changing the MSH or trigger, but its very easy to reach.

not enough of my finger wrapped around the medium trigger on my champion operator, so i fit an ed brown short reach one. less than $20 on brownells, good option for you :)

I shoot mostly with the tip of my finger. The flat trigger and arched MSH on my EGW works fine for me, actually.

Its an awesome shooter. :)

With the flat one the point of aim is low to me.

With the arched it is almost right on.

So my preference is the arched one,I only have 1 with the flat housing,and if it wasn't made in 1918 I would change it

Personnal preference as to which feels better in the hand. All of my 1911's have the flat mainspring housing.

Flat msh and a short trigger work well for me. I also have arched msh and short trigger and like that too. I really don't like long triggers.

Definitely flat for me...second would be the "wedge" from Ed Brown or the V-grip from Wilson Combat.

Arched or wedge points better for me.
