Suarez trigger

So a few weeks ago I installed the armory craft flat trigger in my P226SSE and my P227. I like them a lot. What I learned is that I really like the adjustable over travel. I never thought of my sigs as having much over travel until I could adjust/reduce it. The pretravel elimination was the reason I bought the armorycraft and I like it but I also like to try new things so I ordered a Suarez.

I wasn't sure which gun to install it in, so I pulled out my M11A1 and dropped the in the Suarez trigger but it is slightly longer than the stock trigger and the bottom of the trigger was binding against the bottom of the trigger guard. I never expected it to be purely a drop in part but before modifying the trigger I figured I would try another gun. I reinstalled the standard Sig trigger in my M11A1. I pulled out a P226 and noticed that there was slightly more clearance between the trigger and trigger guard, so I gave that a try and it was perfect. I really like the feel of the trigger-the trigger face is more rounded than the factory trigger. The biggest surprise to me is that it significantly reduced the DA take up-its almost completely eliminated.

Has anyone had clearance issues with a Suarez trigger? I've heard people say that they needed to do slight fitting on this trigger but I couldn't find any specifics so I'd like to hear thoughts. Also, has anyone done a comparison of the Suarez to the Gray Guns?

Edit-the picture is the trigger installed in a P226. I didnt take a picture of the Suarez trigger hitting the trigger guard of my M11A1.

I suspect that the shortening of the DA "take-up" is because your Suarez trigger is hitting the frame at the front of the trigger opening. If true, I would not think that is desirable.

I bought 2 and both wouldn't fit my guns. I ended up filing the bottom to fit. I put one on my P229CA, and the other on my P229 scorpion. I really do like the triggers, but the one for the P229Ca had to have one filed on the front face because of clearance issues. the trigger was thick up at the front and not allowing the trigger to reset so they sent me a new one. I also had the same issue on trying to install that same original trigger on my old P226 and it wouldn't fit that gun either. maybe they made some adjustments to the newer triggers? The one they sent me later was filed down on the front from them, but I still had to file the bottom to clear the trigger guard. I used oxpho blue to touch it up and I think it looks good. Once I got past the little tinkering and having to mess with the fitting they really do work great. The resets are like an 1/8" I think, maybe a hair more but still super short.

Yes, the Suarez triggers have fitment problems. I too have one sitting around because I could not find a singe of my SIG's it would fit.

I now stick exclusively with Gray Guns for anything like this. Never had a GG trigger not fit perfectly the first time.

Glad I got the Suarez "Christmas deal".

I don't mind, I paid half the price and I like to tinker. I paid 30 bucks or whatever and I was able to make it work. They sent me a third one; so I have a spare I'm going to put in my old 228. Life is good.
