Hey, i'd like to buy a 1911 trigger shoe, a froneck or other make. Anyone has any lying around?

I've emailed Frank a few weeks back but no response yet.

I've also been looking with no luck...

I resorted to buying one from Ebay (unsure if it will even fit my 1911)... a "Bair Claw B20 ACE" Should be here Wednesday and I'll know for sure.

If it doesn't fit... I'll have to resell it.

Search Ebay for the Ace Trigger Shoe #3. This is the one for 1911. There are none now but they do pop up from time to time.

The Bair Claw and Ace will not work with a ventilated trigger. The screws are in the wrong place (at least on the ones I have). I have them on my Clark Heavy Slides with solid triggers.  For the Range Officer ventilated trigger, the ones from DJ Precision will work.  The Bair Claws are very, very nice, better than the old Ace shoes.

Don't bother with Tyler. I had to file a BBB complaint to get my money back from them.

You may want to try David Sams. I have one of his shoes. Fits perfectly.

I am currently in contact with David now regarding this.

Can you post a photo of your shoe?

Contacted Frank Sokolowski.  His answering machine still works. If he gets back to me and is still making, will post contact info. I have 3 of his and they are a dream.  He also makes them to fit or work with your finger length

OK...Frank just called me.  still retired but working.  Was in the shop running a lathe.  His shoes are uses by champions.  He makes them SMOOTH based on feedback from some really professional folks, like his Son and his Son’s buddies and competitors.  VERY nice work.  Uses, memory, 4 set screws.  Suggest that you tighten with the short end of the 0.050” Allen wrench he supplies to prevent overtorquing.  I did NOT use any Loctite.  No issues...

Contact info is 

Frank Sokolowski 

Prefers email.  FSCO@PA.net. LAND line (not cell or TEXT” is 717-543-5941.

His stock shoe is approx 5/8” wide (memory”.  The thickness of the shoe or the amount of length it adds to the trigger is 0.060”. He can make them any size you want.  I have an XL hand, but my fingers are not long nor skinny like a concert pianist.  I played around with a shoe I had and had him make my length 0.075”.  Works great for me...but I am a novice.

Contact Frank directly...good luck...

Having Frank's shoes on my SW 986 5" and SA RO 1911 improved my trigger control.  I'll swear by them.

Bair Claw B20 fits! 

The set screws hang over the skeletanized holes in the trigger just a hair... But hold nicely 

Shooting this Para 1911 with Ed Brown dropin match barrel tomorrow at a match (only my second match ever!)
