I tried flat for awhile and it was fine. Went back to curved though. I like the feel a little better and they look better on classic styled pistol. I think a really modern looking 1911 looks best with flat. Seems I gravitate towards classic styling for some reason. Just like the looks better. I believe less is more.

The top photo gun came like that. The other two I bought from Midway I believe. They were not black. I had them coated when Alex Zimmermann did work to them.

I really really like a all blacked out 1911. What brand are those triggers I've never been able to find a black flat trigger. Could be I suck at using google

Go to 1911parts.com. it's where I buy mine and Mike is really good people and very helpful. I am currently using the Grieder which I prefer over the others. This is one on my Ronin, but not black. There are other black triggers available. I should thank Steve Owen's for referring me to this source.

Flat triggers were not designed for looks. They're used to solve trigger pull problems. Chuck Ries put the first one in my first IPSC pistol in the 70s, my groups tightened up nicely. The group below was 30 rounds rapid fire at 20 yards with my Ronin after I put a flat trigger in it. My 9mm LWC still has a curved trigger in it, and I can't group this tight with it. My 45acp pistols all have flat triggers.

I realize they weren't designed for looks, but my groups are the same either way.

After trying many over the years I've ended up liking long curved triggers the best.

Flat or curved is less important to me than wide or narrow. Only really an issue on plastic pistols though.

Correction so there's no misunderstanding. Thunder Mountain is the same as 1911parts.com.

Mike is good people and very helpful.
