    Anybody run them?

    Thinking of having a smith install either a Wilson Combat or 10-8 Performance flat trigger in my R1. Anyone run either of these or have a decent review? My google-fu is not strong today.

    And my apologies - I re-read your post and realized you were asking about two specific flat triggers not flat triggers in general. Having said that, I think Fusion Firearms puts out really high quality parts.

    Forum member Quack is a big fan of the flat triggers. I believe his choice is the 10-8 performance trigger. If he doesn't find this thread you may want to send him a PM for input.

    Both make above average parts.

    Your smith will be the one who makes it or breaks it..

    There's YouTube videos showing step by step how to do it.

    Lets see if this link works. I just compared the 2 The Wilson Combat trigger reduces the amount of material in the bow. less material = lighter = a good thing. It's full height where it is supported by the frame so fitment is good. The Wilson also has an over travel adjustment screw so your smith can set that as well. In the end they both look like good triggers. No worries as to which one you pick.

    Might feel good and shoot great but they look like crap IMHO.

    I have the 10-8 Long flat trigger in my Springfield loaded stainless. Also have the 10-8 Slide Stop, Extended single side safety, magazine release and sights. All are extremely high quality and well thought out. I like the fact that the trigger feels the same no matter where your finger falls. Looks are subjective and irrevelent as function trumps looks every time.

    Awesome info! Thanks to all, ordered a wilson combat flat trigger from Brownells. They gave me a military discount! Gotta order from them more.

    I missed the part that you said you had an R1. Either will work, because Remington seems to have over cut the slot for the trigger shoe.

    Here's my R1. You can see that there is plenty of space at the top of the trigger. The only fitting may be at the bottom of the trigger.

    Thanks Quack,

    Thats a slick looking R1, and a really nice blending job on the grip safety.

    Installed the trigger last night, was not difficult like I had anticipated it to be. Believe it or not it dropped in, no need for adjustment to trigger bow, no filing on the trigger itself to fit. I was pretty shocked. No grinding, no resistance to the trigger, moved smooth back and forth. Did adjust to overtravel set screw but thats expected. Pics are on my phone will try and get them to my computer to post. Also installed a checkered front strap from Wilson Combat.

    FEELS GREAT, much improved over the stock trigger. Took all the play out, no more left to right or up and down slop and a very crisp break and reset.

    Thanks for the help!
