I swapped the wide checkered shoe for the smooth canted shoe on my CXS; love it and really helps my index finger engage the trigger. Large hands but average finger length; I put the 3 position trigger in full rearward location and the canted shoe is a perfect fit. Have 2 and got 2 shoes from Midwest for $70 delivered; a nice $35 upgrade to each Citori. [Some models may come with multiple shoes ?] Maybe try this if you have to stretch to get your finger in the right place; gave me much better control and lighter perceived pull. Don't have any other guns where my trigger finger isn't easily long enough.
