Flat vs curved trigger Empty Flat vs curved trigger

So lately I found my sweet spot on the grip. I have Nills adjustable, which are somewhat between medium and large. See, my hand is narrow, but my fingers and palm are long. So I grip perfect medium in width, but medium grip does not fill my hand well because my palm length is large. Anyway, Nill solved that and with the shelf adjusted almost all the way up I grip the gun as far up as possible, it is comfy. I have short curved trigger on my guns, trigger length fits me perfect. However, with gun grip all the way up now my finger is trying to find a sweet spot on the trigger and I am not sure it's the center of the curve. Seems like it wants to go up some days and lower the others, probably depends on climate and hand swelling. This of course produces inconsistency on the pull as the trigger is curved. Seems like bullseye community loves their curved triggers, but is there someone out there with similar situation that tried a flat trigger and liked it? Maybe offset curve or flat (angled to top or bottom)? I can reprofile what I have in any way. Suggestions? Stick with one position and learn to love it even if sometimes uncomfortable?

You don’t know until you try it. I have shot a flat 1911 trigger and it didn’t feel much different to me. But since your having finger position issues you should definitely try it. 
Last year I thought I just had to have a narrow trigger on my 208S. So I put a Matchguns trigger on it. I hated that dang thing. It came off fast. But I wouldn’t have known unless I tried.

I've tried a flat trigger and found it difficult to get a repeatable location for my finger. I considered filing a little notch, or maybe gluing a tiny bump to the surface, but eventually decided I preferred the curve, where the angle simply "told" my fingertip where to go.

As Jon said, you need to try different combinations. I tried a short trigger in my Beretta. It made the gun un-shootable for me. I took it right off.

Purchased an Anschutz rifle with a flat trigger, was not used to it, began to hate it, until I found that I loved it.

Last week handled a two 1911's with flat triggers. They felt fine.

Before you condemn the concept, give it a try: more than one try. It will be different, but it won't be bad.

I agree. My dad has flat trigger on Buckmark, I hate it. However, with Nills on 1911 this configuration is much different than Buckmark, so cannot compare. By contrast I tried Ruger MK4 with flat trigger and it felt amazing. I know I need to buy flat and feel it out, but will have to fit, polish and whole 9 yards for apple to apple comparison. Not that it's difficult, just takes a bit of time.

Any suggestions for cheap but decent flat short trigger? I don't need pre-travel adjustment and don't care if there is or isn't overtravel adjustment.
