I like the three hole look myself but the pics that the resident 1911 guru have posted are making me have second thoughts.

if you try it, you may like it right away, or it may take a few sessions. I originally tried it on one gun, then when i was shooting the old trigger's i found that i liked shooting the flat trigger better. and after that i bought a bunch of flat's and installed them.

How about an SV interchangeable trigger? Just change the insert, go from flat to curved to top curve, etc.

Same... when I have a choice. Otherwise, I'll run what's in the gun as long as it works. My Kimber Compact I still has the original plastic trigger because it works well and I just have not gotten around to it.

Everyone makes one, and almost every gun can be found with one.
Different is nice.....

Maybe its the angle, but that looks like a med length trigger to me. :dunno:

Good point. It is shorter. But, I suppose with custom gunsmiths (artist really at this level) one mans long is another mans medium. In any case John Harrison calls this one his long trigger. I think it's a beaut.

I was hesitant to order the long trigger, because if it had been as long as some I've seen photos of, it would have been too long for me. As it turns out, it is exactly what I was hoping for.

Not trying to steal the thread but since those photos were taken, the slide stop pin has been recessed, and the front strap serrated 20 lpi.

It's off at the refinisher's now.

They'll pretty much give you whatever trigger you want.

That said, I ordered my soon-to-be-delivered Morris Custom with a short solid aluminum trigger. They are now my favorite.

In years past, I actually preferred the 3-hole and other skeletonized triggers, but not now. :dunno:

Thought about having Brown put a solid one in my build, but opted for a Gen3 skeletonized....and will probably switch it to a Harrison.

I am a huge fan of the now rarely seen short a1 length trigger- long fingers can reach anything but short fingers have a hard time reaching the long triggers. The Army amtu book on pistol shows only the tip of the finger should be hitting the trigger-the rest of the finger should not be contacting the fram at all- this is near impossible with the currently popular long trigger- remember the long trigger was ditched in like 1923 when the military realized the short one was better. I wish the long wasn't so dam popular- it is near impossible to find a 1911 with a short trigger anymore

I agree. First and foremost, I want a short trigger. After that, doesn't matter too much if it's flat, curved, holes, or solid.

I'm the exact opposite. I must be so used to double stacked thick semi autos even my Med hand needs the long trigger.
