After all these years of seeing pics of them, I got to hold a 1911 yesterday with a flat trigger. I really liked it.

It may be some time before I get around to it - mainly because of the shipping costs... But I think I will eventually get one put on my Ed Brown. I checked with Brown today, and they will do it.

I am waiting to but the new Beretta 92A1 in another month or two... But by the end of the year or next year, I may send it off to have it installed. I may go ahead and get some mods to the Brown while its there too. We'll see...

Flat triggers are for folks without an end-mill... or a dremel sanding drum!

:tongueout:

I tried one, but it ain't for me... they do create a certain look, though. :supergrin:

Slap that bugger in yourself! Unless you want other options from Brown as well I would install the trigger and save the money!

So, any difference between ita nd the 10-8 brand?

a few.

the 10-8 trigger bow is a little longer, so a little more work may be needed than just fitting the trigger shoe. to set the over-travel on the 10-8, you have to file the screw.

the Wilson has a normal size trigger bow and has tabs to adjust take-up. the over-travel is set with a screw.

I liek them too, but only own one with a flat trigger installed.

Its a custom build from EGW. :)

Its in my avatar this month, actually.

Brown told me it was $25 + the cost of the trigger - but they never said if they had them or if I had to send 1 in.

I want one the length of a regular 3 hold trigger. Some of yours looks a bit short - so, maybe I should get the 10-8?

Quack, I have to admit.... I never, ever liked a KC. But with the sights and trigger, your gun is down right purdy!

Ok, maybe a dumb question but I will ask anyway. What are the benefits of the flat trigger? Not trying to sound like a moron but this is the first I have ever seen one.

the trigger shoe is the same, it's the bow (internal) that is longer.

here's a mix of Wilson and 10-8 trigger's

for me, it's the feel of the trigger and how my finger lays on it.
others will say that it give's a consistant pull no matter where your finger is on it.

I have less of a contact patch with the flat trigger, hence I'm less likely to pull down or push up on the trigger, during the motion of my pull.

Well, there is a few other things on my to buy list, but U will probably do it in a few months.

I think they look better on black guns, though.
