      Ok that's twice you have brought up the 10-8 length problem.
      As I stated in another post I have installed three and NO length issues.
      Got a link to this research that you came up with?

      I wanted to use a flat trigger for my 1911 build but the gunsmith said the one I got - Wilson Combat - wouldn't work. I forget the exact reasoning, but it had something to do with the size of the trigger (I think the bow specifically).

      This is the Wilson trigger - http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...t-match-trigger-sku965000064-26350-51737.aspx

      I see that 10-8 makes one also - http://www.brownells.com/handgun-pa...-8-flat-trigger-sku100003159-24702-50876.aspx

      As you can see, the bows are definitely different and maybe that difference is what caused the problem. I'd have to talk to the smith again to confirm.

      I'm wondering if anyone has run into this before and conform whether the 10-8 trigger works better? Does anyone else make a flat trigger that works well?

      No, Greyson, but it looks innovative. I think Yam said it was the "Videcki" sp?? trigger. Could that be the one?
      Dunno. Traditionally when one refers to a Videki Trigger they are referring to one that has been hogged out to save weight. These flat triggers might be made by Videki (Is he even around anymore?) or someone else.

      Personally I first saw them on 10-8 pistols and some of the Koenig 1911s made by S&W. Those would be the first places to start. Well after contacting Brown and seeing if they can or cannot get them.

      Ok. Did some checking Wilson and 10-8 make them:

      I know this thread is a couple of weeks old but I'd rather not post a new thread.

      Can anyone explain to me the reasoning or theory behind a flat trigger with a slight angle such as:

      10-8 Performance

      vs.

      the flat trigger with no angle such as:

      10-8 Performance Trigger found on Brownells


      It seems as though the first one has a slight downward angle whereas the latter does not.
      They look like the same trigger to me.

      As mentioned above, the two triggers you linked to are the same trigger. Also, this is the very trigger that used to replace the stock trigger in my Colt Gunsite. I fell in love with the feel of a flat trigger after my wife switched to the 10-8 flat trigger for her Springfield EMP.

      Howdy,

      I'm having a 1911 built for my GF, she has small hands-So is a short trigger is is order for her, or a medium one?

      My question: Is there any advantage for a flat trigger over a curved trigger for a small handed person?

      The manufacturer cliams it " Delivers Consistent Length-Of-Pull Regardless Of Finger Placement"Could that help make it easer to shoot under stress by not having the possiblity of your tirgger finer rocking up and down in the curve of the trigger
