Do flat triggers make a difference compared to curved triggers? Let's explore how these trigger designs can impact your shooting performance.
It's important to remember that the shape of the trigger bow is ultimately a matter of personal preference. Now, let's delve into the details of each design and how they can affect your shooting abilities.
Flat Trigger Bow
The flat face trigger bow allows some shooters to feel as if they are already pressing the trigger shoe to drop the hammer, even though they haven't actually applied pressure yet.
This is because the flat trigger shoe presses against the curved fingertip. This tactile sensation acts as a subconscious trick to achieve faster follow-up shots when using a single-stage trigger.
The shooter can also slide the trigger finger farther down towards the end of the trigger for more leverage, making the trigger pull feel lighter.
The flat trigger prevents your trigger finger from wrapping too deeply around the trigger bow (which often happens with a curved trigger bow).
A flat trigger usually has a slight hook at the end (not all), which can act as a reference point for consistent finger placement.
This feature allows you to maintain a consistent grip and know exactly where the end of the trigger is, leading to more consistent shooting.
Curved Trigger Bow
Experienced shooters understand that everyone has their own preferences and shooting techniques. A curved trigger shoe gives the shooter the flexibility to also position the trigger finger at different points along the curve.
Whether you prefer a high or low finger placement, our trigger bow accommodates your needs, providing a more natural trigger press.
Note: Using a flat face trigger shoe doesn't automatically improve the shooting skills of someone with no experience. Experienced shooters who prefer a curved trigger bow can perform just as well as what the flat trigger bow is designed for.
The trigger finger is only a small part of the overall shooting mechanics. The placement of the grip, tension in the shoulder and hand muscles, positioning of the support hand, and posture can all affect the shot. Additionally, please eliminate all grammar errors.
