Default Curved vs Straight trigger

I did a search...sorry if I missed it.

Wanted to know why you prefer one over the other? Mainly interested in bolt action rifles not ARs but, let me know.

Also if you like one over the other for hunting and hunting with gloved hands?

Thanks!

I’ve got both in 700s. I don’t see a big difference either way.

I tend to prefer curved, but in a rifle with a short pull there is really not a lot of difference. In the plastic pistols flat is the new "in thing" but imo they are considerably worse than curved in that role

I prefer curved, I get a more consistent trigger pull every time resting my finger in the exact same spot every time. Where with the flat I end up resting my finger at the very bottom of the trigger and not as consistent.

I like the straigth triggers myself. All of my 700s have them and most of the ARs i have do. When im shooting target i like to get down on the bottom of the trigger. But i think its all preference

I like straight. It feels different to me and growing up with all curved I feel like I push straight back on the trigger and I am not wrapping my finger around it...

Probably just a mental thing but it works for me

Straight. I've found my squeeze to be more consistent and I feel like I have better leverage when applying force up to the breaking point. For consistent placement I stay on the bottom 1/3 of the trigger where I can feel the end and know I'm in the right spot.

I'm running straight TT Specials on two bolt guns and straight CMC or Giessele on 3 ARs.

I have both and do not really have a preference, Just as long as it is a crisp trigger set between 2 and 3 lbs that is consistent

With a straight trigger, it is more comfortable to put your finger low on the trigger, which increase the length of the lever, basically makes it easier to pull the trigger, without having to lower the trigger lbs. of pull. You can do the same with a curved trigger, it's just not as comfortable to do so as with a straight trigger. Also a straight trigger can increase the length of pull a small amount, which can help with getting proper finger placement to improve accuracy.

The advantage of a curved trigger, is they typically are more comfortable and you can easily place your finger in the same place on the trigger every time, so it takes the same effort to pull the trigger. You may noticed some of the straight triggers having a piece that is attached to the trigger that can be moved up and down the trigger, that is for finger placement, those are typically match triggers.
