    So I have been wanting to install a flat trigger for quite some time now, my little care package from 10-8 came in today.. With a little bit of filing on the bottom of the trigger it finally dropped in. The over travel screw took quite a bit of filing to get it to the same height as the stock trigger.. all in all it took me about 30min and I gotta say I love the way it looks and feels.. Thanks Quack for putting the idea in my head.. I can't wait to take it out and shoot it..

    Now I need to get another one for my Kimber... I would like to swap hammers out as well.. but I think that might be a bit beyond my abilities.. Now if they only made flat triggers for HK's and XD's...

    Be careful Brother,.......the more you do, the easier you realize it is.
    A crap load of time & patience. Your Loaded lkooks great. I hope to
    get mine back together in a week or so, still need to fit a new TS.

    I made a medium LOP flat trigger out of a Greider unit once. It felt pretty good. I think a short flat trigger might feel strange.

    That is exactly what I am looking for... I didn't even know that the short trigger fit me better until I sent the EMP in and started carrying and shooting my Officers model. Is this a custom trigger or are they produced for retail?

    Thanks in advance.

    You are going to have to Contact Joe C. This one in my Loaded project was a "prototype"
    Basically to get an idea of shoe length. Works for me, I have JoeC working up two more.
