Until I got my Colt Pocket Nine, I'd always had serrated triggers. The one on the Colt is smooth, and it's going to take a while to get used to it. (It also pinches my finger like a mean SOB, but I don't know if that's related to the smooth front.)

What are the benefits of a smooth trigger face?

IMO a combat trigger is better smooth and rounded. The finger is allowed to easily slide into place if you have not paced it correctly in the right spot. Target triggers need traction of some kind to ensure the finger stays in place for consistant shot to shot placement.

correct me if I'm wrong, the pocket 9 is a double action only.
if it is, a common modification to double action revolvers is to smooth out the trigger face, to let your finger roll across it as we shoot stated. an other common modification is to break the sharp edges on the back of the trigger to prevent it from pinching.
