1911 Trigger

One of the things that I like about the 1911 that is not mentioned much is the straight pull trigger. I love it. It feels more natural and controllable to me. With VERY few exceptions, no other pistols have this type of trigger. Almost all have a conventional lever-type trigger.

I may be wrong, but it seems to me that this type of triggers lends itself more to accuracy as the shooter is less likely to pull the barrel out of aim on firing.

Any thoughts on this?

agree

my 1911 has the best trigger out of all of my pistols, yes even the P226 elite. I had a gunsmith buddy do a trigger job for me. I think he swaped out the springer for a wilson or something else, but I dream about this trigger sometimes.

Though my CZ in single is fantastic and so is the SRT in my brothers 220 Sport.

Hell what is considered the most accurate production 9 mm (Sig p210) even barrowed the basic concept of the 1911 trigger.

No sir, he fell into that bullet... Never argue with a stupid person. They'll just drag you down to their level and beat you with experience!!
