    Anyone have any they like?

    I switched out my grips to thin grips, but due to my small hands I think I need to go with a short trigger. My husband's RIA 1911 has a short trigger and I like the feeling of it much more than mine.

    Just looking for recommendations on what brand(s) are best to use. I have a Kimber Aegis Elite Pro .45 if that makes any difference.

    TIA!

    I have an Ed Brown short trigger in my DW Valor

    I have a Chamber's Custom super short flat trigger in my Les Baer Custom Carry

    The advantage of the flat trigger is that you don't have to press the trigger in the middle. You can contact the trigger at whatever point feels most natural to you. It also looks sexy. That said, I still like how a curved trigger feels on my finger.

    Triggers are cheap. Try both ;)

    I like the Harrison Design triggers, but the STI Ultra Light comes in short as well.

    That’s not a Harrison trigger

    I tried Harrison, didn’t care for the smooth, non serrated surface.

    Correct, my mistake.
    Trigger pictured is Wilson.
    I have Harrison on a couple other guns and the smooth face doesn’t bother me when shooting.

    I've installed Ed Brown shorts on two of the wife's guns. She likes them. She also really likes the shape of @Gripwright 's "airfoil" grip. Its slim at the front and thicker radius at the back. Like a wing, hence the name.

    Greider short triggers are the original Videcki design.. and inexpensive. Brownells carries them.. Pretty much all I use..

    you can get short, medium and long

    The Harrison smooth faced triggers are my favorite.
