Trigger Shoe on 1377?
« on: January 07, 2018, 09:33:36 PM »
Is there any real (that is shooting) advantage to adding a trigger shoe to my vintage 1377?  I have seen them for sale on line for anywhere fro $9.95 to over $30. Also, other than cosmetics, can I expect any difference for the more expensive ones over the cheapies?  That is, assuming adding a trigger shoe will make any difference at all?  Thanks!

I think it's just personal preference as to the use of a trigger shoe.  For me it's about a must.  I just like them.  About the only one I use is the one from Baker.

Rich made me what I consider is THE best trigger shoe I have ever used. Flat, sturdy and just happens to fit my uniquely shaped hand perfect (see left in photo).

Thanks.......it was JiminNC's design and liked it so much, I copied it with his permission. I like the Custom Shop ones also for the looks, but the curved ones sort of feel like my finger is trapped, squeezed or something like that. Yep the flat one was meant to imatate a target trigger, though a little wider and on top of that you can;t match the adjustability of a 2K+ rifle with just a shoe. I still have one more of them to make in brass for Art!! If he still even wants it, since I haven't bought any brass for ever :-(

Sorry for the drift, but my answer is yes, I think they help, no matter what style you prefer. If I were you, I would pair it up with a super sear and that way you won't be taking from the overall vintage looks of the 1377, but will gain a two stage trigger and I think will make the shoe even that much better.. If you can get a shoe in black, it will be less noticable also.

Sorry if I take this thread hostage, but Rich - if you ever decided to make any of those in brass, perhaps save one with my name on it?  ???

Yep, I still want it.  Maybe you could use some brass to make boat parts ?   :)
