What are the real advantages to a straight bar. I’m used to shooting bolt guns not tactical guns. I figured curved would be more comfortable or should I learn how to use a straight? Will that mess with my head on my hunting rifles?

I can't tell ya, it will be interesting to see opinions I have owned many AR's & never a straight trigger. tu2

If there were a great advantage in it you'd see it prevalent in military weapons. You don't. Its been around since matchlock days and was supplanted by the curved trigger. Must have been a reason. I think it is more marketing than anything.

I have owned and shot many AR's none of them have/had a straight trigger.

I see no advantage to one.

I own a bolt rifle with a straight trigger and while it's light and crisp, I don't like the feel. Seems I'm never indexed correctly even though it shoots realy well..
"Supposedly" one can position the finger higher for a more tacticool feel or lower for a lighter feel but I'm not a big fan of straight triggers.
My AR's all have really good triggers but they're curved single stage.
