1911 flat trigger
 
Anyone have experience with a flat trigger on a 1911. Just ordered a dan wesson ecp in 9mm. It comes with a flat trigger and a brass/gold front sight. Trying to step up a little bit but will probably sell a few of my kimbers and sigs.

Hopefully, will see at the range next week with my new NH.... Havenít had the time to shoot it yet. But as for the way it feels. Feels great..... practiced with laser. Was putting shots through same hole. So cannot tell difference imho. On an AR, another story. Not bad there either.

I have flat and curved triggers, can't feel much difference while firing, well I don't. Your finger may vary?

What is a flat trigger supposed to do anyway, help prevent applying torque?

My new P365xl has one, the Evo on the other hand has a sumptuously shaped trigger that feels fantastic to me. Too early to tell if I shoot one better than the other.

Never shot a 1911 with one that I know of.

I'm in the same boat. As a younger man, my 1911s went to Tussey Custom. But then one day, I took a "virgin 1911" to the range and fired it. Gosh, golly, gee, Batman, the thing worked just fine!

I now have a 3-inch Kimber 1911, and I would guess it has 800 rounds through it. I remember only one stoppage caused by an uneven section of the brass case as it tried to feed. It has not gone to a gunsmith, I just clean it.

I only use new, premium ammunition for my "bedroom loads," but then, even at 65 cents per shot times eight, my life is still worth the cost...

Flat trigger allows the operator greater finger placement (higher/lower) on the trigger compared to curved. How that translates to the real world performance for average Joe is somewhat dubious IMO.

I have factory curved on my Kimber and Colt 1911s. All my other handguns guns have factory curved.

I think familiarity and practice outweighs any difference in shape. But as we all know, operator perception plays a huge factor in these types of things.

Thanks for everyones input. I didnt order it for the flat trigger , I just wanted a 4 inch 1911 that was a a next step up. I already have a couple ultras in 45acp and 9mm, plus a dan wesson eco in 9mm. Im sticking with 9mm because of the price of ammo. I still shot my 45s, which I have no problems with just the cost. I guess my next investment will be a loading setup. Again thanks for the input and be safe.

I have a flat Tractor Thread short trigger on my Kimber Ultra Carry-what I prefer is the shorter pull length for us that have short fingers.
