    Not my cup of tea as they look 'goofy' to me. (Just a personal opinion.) I have not shot one but I DO understand the concept of consistent finger placement.

    To each his own. If you like it and it works for you, good deal. Enjoy!

    Hopefully that thing is actually one piece and doesn't snap together or something.

    I like this slight modification. Like others have said, it's not my cup of tea, but I like the "puzzle piece" contact between the trigger and the extension. First time I've seen that on a gun. Customize on!

    Got one on my SV race gun. I was skeptical at first, now my splits are between .12 and .17 hundredths. Rock on man.

    Yup, that's the advantage of the SVI triggers. You can change the length of the reach without having to fit a different trigger bow to the frame each time

    I have never tried one. Maybe something in the near future...

    Flat trigger/contoured grips...trying hard to process this.

    The shoe on the bow can be change for a curved, flat, partial curve all by just changing the shoe. They are tight and I have yet to have one shift on me.

    My trigger finger has been broken twice and my finger is slightly twisted. Pointing my finger the nail is at about 1:00.
    Flat smooth triggers are more comfortable to shoot and the contoured grip puts the trigger right where it should be.

    I made and installed a pad of aluminum approximately 1/2" square to the trigger of my Ruger MkIII target pistol after tweaking everything I could to get a nice trigger, including removal of all lawyer additions.
    The trigger pad has a flatheaded allen screw, 6-32 I believe, flush in it's center, and the tip of my finger finds the allen socket automatically. Looks goofy as heck, but increasing the area give the sensation of a much lighter trigger. It's the most accurate handgun I own.

    not bad
    honest 10 yards with 185 grain reloads
    I think I'm done with this one. Just right as it is (aside from the frame, slide, and barrel nothing is original) I only have three or four guns that I won't do anything else to and this is one

    Looks good, but who in their right mind would use flat triggers? :neener:

    Flat triggers, bobbed frames, compensators, full length guide rods. Wonder what John Moses would say. Good looking gun!

    Sweet trigger, good shooting! Looks like you earned your membership into The Flat Trigger Society!

    BTW-- how much damage to the recliner?

    I had a trigger like that on my water gun when I was a kid. Sure helped my accuracy back then.
    Who knew it would take so long to finally get adapted to 1911s.

    Flat triggers have been around for a while.
