Anyone try Antioch FlatTrigger for Sig P290 from galloway/RTK

Antioch Flat Faced Trigger for Sig Sauer P290RS Pistols :: P290 P290RS Performance Parts :: Sig Sauer® Performance :: Galloway Precision


My hand trigger finger is too long to shoot accuratly. My finger hits my support hand between my thumb and pointer finger.


Will the flat trigger push the trigger forward or at a different angle to help this.

Its either this or im going to have to get a g43 or g26.

I like the gun and have trigger polishing to it. It has zero grit and is butter smooth.

I can manage the trigger weight fine. I can dry fire with zero sight movment. Its the trigger finger

I want my 290 to work for me i have had it for a couple years. I cant train around my issues

Thanks all.




Ps. my 227 has zero malf with the 10 rd mags. The extended mag spring are in mail from midway.

At 7ft im touching bullets when both da and sa on the dot torture drill. Too bad the da is 3 inches down vertically



I love that gun.

I don't think there are many P290 owners here. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago. I need to spend more time with it to improve accuracy but I don't plan to modify the trigger.

If you are trying to shoot beyod 15 ft. (note not 15 yards) you bought the wrong gun. The P290 is a belly gun much the same as a S&W J-frame is. Up close and personal social work and preferably at 10 ft. or less, draw and blast don't even try to aim, just point.
It's a get off me gun as well.

And yet i can shoot the sig 938 much farther, and keep it in 4 inches.

I can shoot the dot torture at the same distance and have all the holes touching



By the way if you learn to shoot a double action gun, you can shoot it accuratly


Thanks for the response.

Obviously there is a reason the 290 is a fizzle
Ill buy a better gun then.

The 290 can be as accurate as any other 3" barrel handgun. Goal should be 2 quick rounds on center mass at 7 yards.

I got the .380 version in-route myself, not sure you need a better gun just the right gun for the task at hand.
Good luck with your future choice.

Thats why I asked about a trigger that moves the break forward

Got it. I guess it can't hurt to try the after market trigger if you're handy enough to do that (I'm not) or willing to pay a gunsmith. I hope it works out for you.

I have small hands but I did notice that if I have too much finger in the trigger guard I'm unable to pull the trigger back far enough to fire. The really long pull takes some getting used to.

I qualify with a 290rs as an off duty weapon as do several co-workers (along with the S&W shield and Glock subcompacts) If a 290rs is not accurate at 15 yards (not 15 feet) it's the shooter, not the weapon. By accurate, I mean the equivalent of A zone hits on an IPSC target.

I installed the Antioch curved trigger on my 290rs. It doesn't feel much better than the factory trigger and in some respects it is worse. The bump out at the bottom of the trigger irritates my finger in much the same way the hook at the bottom of the factory trigger does, and the wide flat face doesn't work well with the short distance between the trigger and the rear of the grip. The rounded factory shape feels much better. I may remove the trigger and modify it to my liking and see how that works.
In response to the OP's question about finger position at break, it does move forward a very small amount due to the Galloway trigger being thicker in that dimension. Not enough to solve your problem though.

Yes, I installed the Galloway trigger on my trusty P290RS and it was a good modification. Instructions are decent on the install.

Shot it several weeks ago at the range and it did reduce the amount of squeeze to firing action and I see a small improvement in accuracy but most of all it was more comfortable to shoot than the stock version.

Galloway makes a line of good stuff that works. D

(Should add I purchased the straight trigger model)
