2022 Trigger Finger Issue
Bit of an unusual question - Have a SP2022 9mm and absolutely love the feel, operation, and accuracy. My right index finger was injured many moons ago, and the end has an exaggerated downward tilt to the right side from the surgery. After shooting 250 rds, my trigger digit is quite sore on the bottom right side below the pad. I tried different positioning, focusing mainly on the end pad of the finger of course, but the last part of the pull puts the pressure on the side of the finger vs the pad - hence the soreness. I notice the 2022 trigger has quite a curve to it, which may be contributing to this particular issue. Although I have large hands, I'm going to get a 2022 "short" trigger (Top Gun) and see if that makes any difference. Also, my son is a machinist, so may try altering that trigger to straighten it a bit taking out some of the curve which may help. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed anything like this and what you may have done to rectify it. Thanks!

Bob, I have a similar problem due to malformation of my trigger finger due to arthritis. My finger has a large knob on the first knuckle and a weakness in that joint. I shoot left handed and it's my left index finger that's affected, of course. The problem for me comes in finding a small carry gun (.380 max) that has a trigger guard big enough to get my finger cleanly on the trigger. I had to sell my Kel-Tec .32 for this reason and had to eliminate a few others as well. Just picked up a Sig P238. Finger fits well and I'm hoping the SA trigger pull is easier on the finger(haven't fired it yet.)
This is no help to you but wanted you to know I empathize.

The short vs standard trigger discussion comes up often, your question is a good one.
I have a thought to consider:
I thought the short trigger was less than ideal for me as well I found myself using "more finger" than I like. So, I swapped out the small grip with the medium grip and it did make a difference. It is now more comfortable for me to shoot, I get the pad of my finger where I want it.
Although they look almost identical in size, they are not. The small grip ends in P/N 00002, the medium in 00003, and the large in 00004. If you have the small installed (which is what mine had from the factory), swap it out with the medium, it may help.

Thanks all for the empathy and replies.
Lee - I'll check my grips and see - not sure what mine came with out of the box. Been thinking about possibly getting a laser grip anyway, but undecided since they're not cheap. Thanks for the suggestion
Lee - I'll let you know after I get the short trig and have a chance to try it. If it doesn't work any better I'll be happy to trade with you; that way I still have a spare for my son to machine/experiment with. My 2022 is a 9mm and yours is a 0.40 - I don't think that would make any difference with the trigger, would it?

I assume that the last comments from your recent post was direct to me not Lee.
The 2022 .40s had the short trigger as OEM
The 2022 9mm had the standard trigger as OEM
So yes it would make a difference with the trigger. Either way, if you wish, I would love to trade you triggers.
Good luck with the gun and last, but of course NEVER least.....thank you sir for your service.

Oops - sorry about that, Colbbi - you are right - that partic comment was for you.....get myself confused at times when work gets hectic! I'm out for a week but will check when I get back as I should have that short trigger in, and will take it to my machinist/gun reworker son, then we will see.
Thank you so much for the kind words..... I do miss flying those helos! Was not ready to quit, but the Army gave me no choice when I turned 60. I have to say the comraderie in this Sig Talk group is similar to what I experienced in my unit, and is sure feels great!

This is for Colbbi -
I finally was able to test out my SP2022 with the trigger issue. I found that the factory grip was a SMALL, and I bought a rubber SigPro grip (medium) and installed it. Went to the range yesterday, and the trigger-finger relationship was much improved. Bottom line is it looks like the factory standard trigger will work, so I'll keep it and I won't need to install the "short" trigger. If you still need a standard trigger, you might try Top Gun - I think the cost was around $29. Hope this helps!

Just keep in mind the "short" trigger has a greater radius which brings your finger closer to the hammer. I was confused when looking at them because the short trigger looks longer. Short means shorter distance to the grips not the physical length of the trigger. The extra curve in it places more of the the side of the finger in contact at the end of the pull if you have longer fingers. I'd like to see a picture of yours. I believe you most likely have the short trigger as most of the SP2022 seem to ship with them.
This explains it with pictures look at the 6th post in this thread.

Thanks for your reply and references. I looked at the ref pics and checked the issued trigger vs the "Short" that I bought. I believe my SP2022 came with a standard trigger as it is wider, and the short is definitely thinner and appears to have more of a curve to it. Attached is a picture - the Short trigger is beneath the trigger frame, so it is farther away in the photo:
