Straight triggers were the rage during the 1890s when H&H and Drilling Rifles became popular for African hunts. Straight triggers were easier and faster to make but straight or curved, when you touched off a 600 Nitro Express its going to hurt you. Then straight triggers were installed on smaller bore high end Mauser and Martini hunting rifles of the bolt action design. It was found that a rifle with a curved trigger shot tighter groups because more surface area of the trigger finger came in contact with the curved trigger. This caused improved hand to brain nerve signal transmission so since then most military rack grade and civilian hunting rifles have been made with curved triggers. The latest drop in equipment may be a sales gimmick, hurry up and get yours before they are gone and you are left standing in the dust, I don’t know. I have been plinking with the AR for a half century and am too old to change triggers and learn something new. Old time muscle memory pretty much controls what I do and how I shoot, I got used to curved triggers and like them so will keep them on my rifles.
