What Is Trigger Over Travel? (Gun)

 

How to Shoot Fast & Accurately  

The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry

 

Trigger overtravel is the rearward distance that the trigger moves after the sear is released. It's the extra distance that your finger and the trigger moves after the break point. Overtravel is important because it has an effect on the accuracy of the shot.

Any movement during the firing of a gun has a negative effect. When you pull the trigger and hit the break point of the trigger you use a little more force to overcome the resistance of the break. After it releases your finger continues rearward at a relatively high speed and comes to a sudden stop at the end of it's travel. This extra distance that your finger moves and the sudden stop causes movement in the gun and may result in a missed shot.
