Recently inherited a Rem 6mm from pap who hung up his hunting gear for good this summer. I'm very sad he won't be in the woods this year but know he'll be hanging out at camp on Monday. He gave all his guns to family.

This gun has a metal "pad" attached to the trigger with set screws. The pad greatly increases the area to place the tip of your finger and I really liked the feel of the trigger pull. I'd like to add these to some other guns but do not know what they are called. a local gun shop didn't carry them but the guy knew what I meant. Anyone know what they are called?

Thanks and good luck Monday

Tyler's trigger! Do a search and you'ill find his website. I've bought a couple and should buy a couple more. They come in Black and Gold. I think they may be specific to brand.

Thanks Tomwysox! Think that's the same idea but not the exact same as on pap's gun. His is not curved. It's flat on the face and has the curve on the back that attaches to the trigger. I'll find them somewhere... sometime... someday...
Thx again

Look on gunbroker.I put trigger shoes on just about every rifle I own. I have seen the kind you're talking about but have never had one as I like the curved ones. Good luck and keep looking. Just another thought, maybe try ebay.

Thanks for the direction to gunbroker. Haven't looked there yet. Would put them on every gun I own if the price is ok. I think there may be an opportunity here... hmm... Thanks!

that is most likely an ACE trigger shoe. Very popular for 40 years. Sold by Flaig's in Millvale PA. But made by a custom machine shop in Murrysville PA.

I do not belive the trademark ACE for trigger shoes is still made, but there are literally over 100,000 of them out there. I have four of them on various rifles. they were great for Springfields, Sako, and other rifles that had thin triggers. The shoe must be removed to take the action out or to remove the floorplate.
The front trigger finger surface has vertical serations on it. They do pop up on E-bay from time to taime. search ACE TRIGGER SHOE

Thanks for the input all! I'm on the trial of them now but don't have a lot of time to look just yet. Really appreciate the feedback
