Determining correct trigger length?

Post by KevinB on 10/7/2015, 3:04 pm

I've been struggling with getting a good repeatable grip on the 1911.  I have fairly small hands and have a hard time getting a grip that is not affected by the trigger finger.  Is there any rule of thumb(or forefinger) for determining if I should be trying a shorter trigger?  I'm considering slim grip panels as well.

I have Rink grips and changed to a short trigger. Much better. Not a huge investment to try it.

Check out the Greider triggers at Brownells.  They have short, med, and long and are reasonably priced.  They require a little fitting but it is pretty easy to do.

I need to keep the gun CMP legal for now so no orthopedic grips.  Dave Salyer is going to do a trigger on it soon so I want to get the right part fitted.

Don't forget to make sure you have a flat main spring housing to compliment the short trigger.

Not necessarily true.
I find a short trigger and arched housing works best for my small hands.
You need to try them both.

True enough. With hands, as well as, other parts of the anatomy, one size doesn't fit all. Just because Brian Zins or Jerry Miculek successfully uses a certain grip or configuration doesn't mean it is good for everyone.
