    has anyone shot with the "straight" triggers/ the one that has NO curve in the trigger face, just squared off making it straight in the trigger face?
    Is it a plus or minus?
    thanks

    You would be upgrading your pistol.

    This allows for consistency of trigger pull & feel, no matter how and where you placed your finger during times of stress. Can help to prevent jerking the trigger and spoiling your shot.

    The flat trigger was made to perform reliably each and every time with the least amount of inconsistency. Hilton Yam is a very well-known and respected pistolsmith, trainer and active SWAT member. While he may grate on some people because he doesn't pull punches in his opinions of firearms, his integrity towards firearms and the parts that he manufactures hasn't been questioned.

    I've never seen one of those before. I like the look of it, though.

    Where does one's trigger finger rest on that thing?

    i think CWL's point is that trigger finger position matters less with that trigger

    I love them!
    When shooting 1911s, my trigger finger is high and right up against the frame. I hate how my finger is at a weird angle when using curved triggers.

    I installed one a while back. It's not a drop-in, and will require fitting. Also, the overtravel adjustment is not a screw-type adjustment. You'll have to use a file. FWIW, I think it is an excellent trigger.

    I believe that you can pick one up from Brownell's as well.
