    So, is it just me or do others here not like the standard skeletonied triggers?

    I love the spur hammer on my A2 and I really like the retro ring style commander hammers as well.

    I know its a little thing, but I just think that the de facto skeleton hammers need to be changed. Same with skeleton triggers. I like solids.

    I do think it goes against the grain here somewhat but I like the skeletonized triggers also. I don't know where the discourse comes from but believe it or not there are a lot of things I don't know.:D

    No right or wrong, it is all personal preference.

    Personally, I think the industry has just overdone the skeletonized thing a bit.

    I like a long trigger , skeletonized or solid makes no difference , as long as it's not flat . Also like a spur hammer but everything seems to come with commander style and it's not worth changing for me .

    I like this, whatever you call it. The shape not necessarily the damascus.

    My fav is a bobbed spur.
    What napes referred to as 'skeletonized' is just a lightening slot cut in the rear face.
    Perhaps he will show us a pic.

    And I also prefer solid triggers.
    All lightening is done internally.

    I love a nice ring hammer the most. I really don't like the D style that comes on Springfield Armory guns.

    I go both ways. If it's bones, it's gotta be big ones. If it's a spur, it's gotta be the WIDE ones.
