Why Change Trigger Guard

I am new to the AR so please forgive my ignorance. Periodically, I read about folks changing out their trigger guards, usually for a Magpul guard. Why would you want to change out a trigger guard? Want would be the benefit?

The main reasons are for more room for gloves and appearance.

Thanks Trey. Gloves makes sense.

That and flow.

The Magpul trigger guards seem to just belong on an AR. They look a lot better than the standard flat ones.

My Troy Carbine came with a Troy enhanced trigger guard. I never would have bought one before (magpul, troy, or any other) to put on another gun, but I do like how it feels.

indeed Almost as good as a billet lower with oversized trigger guard.

Having done a lot of shooting in gloves...it does make a difference.

I've had a glove get trapped between the trigger and trigger guard.

That glove wasn't used for duty use again after that.

I find stock AR-15 aluminum trigger guards skin the hell out of my middle finger when shooting without gloves. Switching to an aftermarket guard is routine for me when getting a new AR.

To me, the biggest benefit is that it fills the gap on the sharp "ears" on the receiver. Feels much better on the middle finger.

Magpul MOE works great for me. I like the LWRC version just as much.

Gloves, fills the gap, looks better, and makes the rifle more accurate.
