Watchamacallit - TRIGGER ACCESORY

I used to see interesting - clamp on (using set screws), wide serrated alloy, Trigger Pads - on revolvers with thin triggers & target rifles etc. I'd like to find one for a rifle I own - but in doing a computer search for them - I must not have been calling them by their correct name - & couldn't find ANY at all - I gave up after trying all the descriptive names I could think of.
ANYBODY HERE KNOW WHAT TO CALL THESE - OR WHERE TO LOOK ?
I remember they felt pretty nice to use on the revolver with them - that I tried out many years ago.

THANKS, C.

They're called "Trigger Shoes".

Not seen very often except on very specific guns for specific range use.

Too many negligent discharges!

Do not use one on a self defense gun, at least not one that is wider than the trigger guard as many are. They were intended primarily for range guns. Too much risk of a negligent discharge on a gun you carry for self defense or hunting as the extra width can snag on things and make for a loud unintentional noise accompanied by a misdirected projectile. Just went through a conversation on this very thing on Facebook with a young fellow who was determined to ignore advise from more experience folks.

I have them on my bullseye pistols but would never put one on a carry gun. DJ Precision makes them, although I am not sure if for rifles. They may make one based on your measurements.

THANK YOU - ALL GREAT ADVICE. Here is the rest of the story (punch line). I want to put the Trigger Shoe on my deluxe Hungarian FEG AK - my "baby Dragunov" 7.62x39 range target rifle. It already has an improved trigger, & is surprisingly accurate. It is inexpensive & enjoyable to shoot. I have a lighted reticle Zenit military scope for it.
I like it a lot.

Just because you may not offer the option does not mean other smiths don't. Email [email protected] and talk to Frank Sokolowski he makes trigger shoes and asks for measurements. Many bullseye shooters use his trigger shoes including his son Adam Sokolowski who is a very good shooter.

Ummm.... I believe Chuck was giving his own measurements. In other words, he's a bit pudgy.
