Trigger extension

Don't know what to call this.

I saw small metal bloc that fit over the trigger to give you more area to put your finger on. It had 2 small alllen screws.

I would like to find something like that for my P226. The trigger sits back to far in SA mode.

I have tried both Grey guns triggers, still too far back for me.

TIA

They're commonly called trigger shoes.
Best bet would be to call Tyler's in Oklahoma to see if they might have something to fit.

If the trigger on the Sig is too wide for a shoe, you might take down
the width of one of the Grey's? triggers to accommodate.

For safety: always make sure the trigger shoe width does not exceed the trigger guard width.

They also tend to reduce the felt pull weight cause the pressure is spread out over a wider area.

Mind you only feels like less, The trigger doesn't actually get lighter.

Trigger shoes are OK for target shooters, but have no place on service arms.

Do a google search with " trigger shoe" all kinds pop up. We used them a lot in the 1970's , just about every handgun I own has one.....I had no idea they were still made !

If you can get one that is close to fitting you can use a small amount J-b Weld Epoxy Putty to get an exact custom fit. Clean and degrease the shoe slot so putty will stick , grease the trigger so it doesn't stick... Press shoe firmly into place, grease little screws and tighten , clean off any excess and let cure ....Perfect Fit !

"...trigger doesn't actually get lighter..." No, but you can feel the whole trigger pull. Had one on my M1 Rifle and '03A4 for a while. You can feel every mm of the sear.
"...on service arms..." What service arms?

I would guess this means sidearms carried for duty as in law enforcement or armed security.

Well, I made the mistake of sending my trigger to tylers. Can't get him on the phone, does not call back. Thought it would only take a day or three, 2 weeks later....Beware.

Not attempting to sound condescending.

Yours is a common theme about Tylers since Mel passed.
I have always figured the kids are working full time jobs in addition to keeping their dad's products (and name) alive.

I'd relax and give it a bit more time.
I had a similar situation with my Uzi years ago, and it was the whole gun - all 7000 - gone!
18 months for a new feed ramp and trunnion welds with very spotty comms.

Worst case is a replacement trigger or slapping in one of the Grey gun triggers until you get the other one back.

Years ago every one of my rifle's had a trigger shoe on it. Flaigs. Yes they are wide and spread the pull over a larger area but still release at the same pull weight. To put them on, there is two small allen screw's in the side. Place the shoe on the trigger and tighten it, loved them. Checked that place in Oklahoma and don't recall why I didn't order some, price probably!

Thanks for the replies, but if I ever get my trigger back, the matches will be over.
I am going to order a new trigger from sig.

Anyone else make a trigger shoe?

I bought mine used on eBay. They are pretty pricey. $20 or more for an old hunk of metal. I put it on my mosin. Works well. One tip is to dimple the trigger for the little set screws, or it tends to fall off after some use.

An old timer, who was sheriff of some remote county, came to our shop. He needed work done on his conceal carry revolver, including installing a trigger shoe. I turned him down and explained the safety concerns. He left rather crossed. He claimed that was what he had when he was sheriff.

Installed a Galloway trigger today. This might do the trick, feels good. Range tomorrow.

Galloway is better for me, could use a slight round where the finger goes though.

I love the Tyler-T grip adapters, but they have gone so out of sight in price, that my S&W's aren't getting any more of them. I see them listed on places like ebay for 40 bucks, plus 10 bucks shipping....for a little piece of aluminum that probably doesn't weigh over an ounce!
