freedomsmith triggers

Post by jonholl » Sat Jun 30, 2018 9:07 am

Comparison of 3 hole or "plain" fat daddy triggers? Is there any advantage from one to the other?
Thanks.

The correct phrase is...more "TACTICOOL"! :lol:

The holes reduce the inertial drag on the trigger. That means it takes 17% less linear impulse to pull the trigger, resulting in a 0.045 millisecond reduction in the time from click to boom. That guarantees 0.25MOA accuracy at 100 yards.

Oh, and the spoiler on your Honda really does give an extra 50 hp.

Can anyone with a Freedomsmith Trigger tell me how wide the trigger is where your finger contacts the trigger? It's referred to as the Fat Daddy and it does look wide so I'm wondering how much wider it is than the stock trigger or anything else I own.

I can give you an actual measurement later this evening.
My Sig EDC currently has the Enhanced Gray Guns flat trigger, previously had the Advanced Apex flat trigger.
I'd say off the top of my head, the Freedomsmith is no wider than the Apex. The edges of the Gray Gun are slightly more rounded than the Apex. The backside of the Gray Gun is measuring right about 5/16". My guess is the Freedomsmith isn't more than 3/8" tops. But I will confirm the width for you.

I don't have an issue switching from the Sig to the Canik. Any differences in trigger width is negligible.
I actually love the Freedomsmith trigger setup...SO MUCH BETTER than the stock trigger!
I'm not really sure why they use the "Fat Daddy" name...it's certainly no "Pork Pig" trigger!!! :lol:

The battery in my digital caliper was dead so I had to compromise. The factory trigger width measured 3/8". However the factory trigger is tapered where the actual face is narrower. You can see the "step" lines on the factory one. I measured the Apex trigger and the width is also 3/8". The Freedomsmith trigger is 13/32". So it is just slightly bigger.
