Anyone know of a trigger that's checkered AND long?

A "perfect" trigger for some of my guns would be a long, knurled trigger. One with a face like the 1911a1 through WWII type with a checkered (or "knurled"), slightly rounded face, but also long like the 1911 design and like most current production.

Has anyone ever made one like this?

Never in person, although I've seen images of ones specially checkered for use in Service Pistol matches. If you keep your eyes peeled on Gunbroker you'd be surprised what might show up.
Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1946 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.
