What trigger to you all recommend to replace my DW Guardian trigger? I want a long trigger or flat with the silver aluminum finish. What would be the easiest best trigger for me to fit to this gun? Thanks!

I like the EGW trigger choices.

The DW 38 super I just got has a Harrison in it.

if Your trigger is solid try flattening it first. A long flat is comparatively the same size as the lowest point in the radius of an arched trigger. File and sand paper. Try not to affect the side finish and there ya go. A Wilson trigger is not most generally an easy fit trigger. Just FYI, but it is the best flat imo..

I put a Harrison Extreme Service long trigger in mine.

How hard was that trigger to install?
With Harrison and Egw, you might have to file/sand the top and or bottom. Also file the rear (adjustment screw /pad) for overtravel. There are no adjustments for pre-travel. Never installed a Wilson. The 10-8 flat trigger requires same adjustments as the Egw and Harrison.

Loaded question.
I’ve been doing my own triggers for 25 years so
although it’s takes time and a bit of know how,
It’s really not that difficult. However, although there is a blueprint,
almost nothing about 1911 parts is drop in like Glocks and such.
Most parts are individually fit to the gun.
That being said, replacing a trigger provides a great opportunity
to get to know your new gun...

Thanks! That inspires some confidence! I'll watch some videos and do some other research. I'm ordering the EGW flat and long triggers since they are local to me and I can't decide which one I want. If you got any helpful links for install please share!

Although I have a few flat triggers, it’s just not my thing. I’m a Harrison/ Wilson long trigger guy.
