    Well done by Greg on the trigger, and the superb write-up and photos to show it. Kudos' to you sir!

    I just don't get it though...

    I have never tried a straight trigger, I'll admit that...

    But when i look at the shape of my trigger finger, it's not straight where it contacts the trigger. So...

    I guess it's just not for me, as I do prefer smooth-faced rounded triggers (and have been known to grind/file the grooves out of them before, if they had 'em...).

    I'm kind of on board the same train you are 7. They make complete sense on a single action as mentioned earlier in this thread but not so much on these longer pulls.
    But people here whose opinions I have strong faith in like them so I could be completely wrong.
    I'm kind of skeered to install one myself but I'd sure like to play with one to get my own take on them.

    My apologies for the crappy photos that follow, but I hope they will suffice.
    I like the flat trigger because I think (maybe delusional) that it allows me to use the lower part of the trigger for maximum leverage.
    Even if there is no increase of leverage over the OEM trigger, this at least makes using it more comfortable.
    Here's shot of the trigger with it's slack taken up. The trigger is almost vertical at the point and my finger easily positions low on it.

    Here, I've started the firing stroke.

    This shot is slightly after the striker has released

    Regards,
    Greg

    Actually, those are pretty good photos and I think it shows what you mean by leverage. Glad it works well for you.

    I've just realized I might be old-school and can't get past the look of a "straight" trigger face.

    Thanks for adding those Greg. Nice job.

    I hear ya. It took me a wile to warm up to triggers with a straight/flat face. Even now I only have them on certain guns. I like it on my P365, but didn't go with one on my P226 when I put in a trigger with over travel adjustment. I really like the one on my P45, I just seems right on it, but doubt I will put one on any of my other Kahr pistols. I don't like the look of them on 1911s and that's from a guy who has polymer 1911s. Of course, nothing is written in stone.

    Thanks for your kind comments.
    Regards,
    Greg
