These Flat Triggers on the Legion and such.
I assume the only thing these Adjustable Flat Triggers do is take up the slack on the Trigger bar??

Not really worth buying for Plods like me that shoot steel and the occasional IDP match.

Well, that all depends...

The Flat Trigger is designed to release at 90 degrees, and 'can' change/lighten the perceived trigger pull due to increased leverage if the trigger finger is placed low on the trigger shoe face. And, not all Adjustable triggers are straight if that's what you're after.

Some really like the Flat/Straight Trigger and claim it's a 'must have' mod....I'm still experimenting with it on a couple of P320's but it's worth is definitely varies by user preference.

What the adjustable trigger does, flat or curved, is limit overtravel, which does at least two things; it reduces the distance the trigger travels past the break and any subsequent frame movement, and it reduces the time to reset. Combined, it allows faster follow-up shots, and makes for a nicer trigger.

I have flat triggers on all my P320's, and P365's. I like them. I don't know if it's a must-have, but I put them on because I prefer them.

Not all the flat triggers stop at 90 degrees; I'm not sure why that's a magic value, but the adjustable value isn't so much in whether the trigger stops exactly vertically, but in how far it travels after the striker is released. Any further than necessary is wasted distance, and the finger and trigger traveling aft without any purpose. Any farther than necessary, can result in a slight jerk on the trigger as it releases, free travels, then it's the stop. Minimizing this distance can aid in trigger control and accuracy.

I wouldn't put it in a carry pistol, but the grayguns competition trigger makes for a very nice P320 trigger. If one doesn't want to go with their sear, lighter springs, etc, their flat adjustable trigger is a very nice upgrade, too. Don't forget to locktight the set screws.

The fat guide rod is a nice addition, too. To me, it changes the way the pistol feels when it cycles. It feels smoother. Plus it allows the use of a number of aftermarket springs, to tune the spring to your ammunition (or visa versa).

I too wouldn’t call it a must have, but my preference is a GGI trigger. I’ve done them on my X5 Legion, CW FCU, 365 as well as my son’s X5 Legion and his 365. To me it is about efficiency of movement which allows me to operate the gun predictably fast and accurately.

Thanks for the replies I had my 226SAO apart for a deep clean and why I don't know I was watching a vid about the triggers as I was watching I noticed the slop in the trigger bar and assumed that is what was taken up, the slop on the trigger bar.

I don't know exactly what it is, but I can tell you that adding the flat legion trigger to my p227 literally transformed it. I wasn't expecting much, but it was night and day. I am now going to put them on my other Sigs.

Same here. I am in the process of putting them on all my carry guns.
