    Handguns with linear triggers?

    The trigger is one of the biggest reasons people who aren't into the nostalgia of a firearm still remain drawn to the 1911. Heck, after only a couple thousand rounds I now know why 1911 shooters refer to a Glock's trigger as "mushy", and I shoot a glock about half as often as I do my 1911. Does anybody know of any other handguns whose triggers are similar in design?

    Nothing? I'm genuinely shocked... lot of handgun buffs here, but nobody's heard of another handgun with a linear-motion trigger?

    Actually, I have never heard of a "linear trigger" until this post.

    Other than that, NO. One would be hard pressed to find a handgun that matched a finely tuned trigger on a 1911 model.
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    I've shot an STI custom match gun and that trigger broke like no other gun I have ever shot,the 2500.00 price tag may be a reason why

    As far as I know the 1911 and 1903 Colt are the only handguns with that type of trigger.

    But who knows, I've been wrong before....once....

    1903 and 1908 Colts have a 1911 like trigger. I have a .45 Hi Point (Don't laugh. It goes bang everytime and if I run out of ammunition, I can beat my attacker into the ground with it.). Its trigger looks kind of like a 1911 externally. I have no idea if it works in the same way though. It certainly is not as good as any 1911 I have shot.

    Most of those look like Baby Browning clones. The Baby Browning also has the 1911 type trigger.

    You guys are awesome. Thank you very much!

    As a brief explanation, my goal is to look at each firearm with a linearly-moving trigger and determine which have worked, which haven't, and why. That means I'm trying to find as many cut-aways and parts blow-apart images I can find of as many different trigger mechanisms as I can. Quite frankly, I'm not sure if any trigger out of the box compares to a 1911 trigger, and I strongly suspect that's largely due to the linear motion of the trigger and its inherent consistency. The pistols don't necessarily have to be a 1911-like trigger, just a trigger whose motion is parallel to the bore axis.

    QKShooter, that LM4 is working art! Only 33 parts, too! I found a blow-apart of the LM4, but not the military version (XML); unfortunate, since that's the one I'd like to start from for my project (which is a semi-automatic pistol).

    You guys are a great help, keep 'em comin'!

    BAC, is your project just for yourself or are you going to publish a book about it or something similar?

    Here is a photo of the also defunct TINY LITTLE Downsizer WSP (Worlds Smallest Pistol) - Well, the smallest .45acp pistol anyway.

    Don't bother trying to serch for one. I think they are selling for about 3 Grand If you can even find one for sale.
