I prefer arched mainspring housings to flat; however I'm tempted to try out a wedge mainspring housing. Just curious to know if anyone's compared the arched vs. the wedge in terms of feel and shootability -- if so, what were your thoughts?

Thanks.

It's my understanding the arched mainspring housing was introduced in order to counter the tendency of some shooters to hit low. I have rather long fingers, so I have a long steel trigger and steel arched mainspring housing, both for the fit in my hand, plus the steel MSH makes the muzzle feel a bit lighter to me, which I prefer.

My 2 1911s have checkered wedge MSH. I find it really helps in placing my small/medium size hand up high against the grip safetly. I had an SA mil spec with serrated arch MSH and I couldn't grip the gun well enough. Maybe the checkered arch MSH would yield the same result (or close) as the wedge one.
