Trigger shoe size

I want to put a trigger shoe on a .22 I have and I'm not sure which size I need. I measured the trigger's width which was .180. I see the ones listed here but the range of size they'll fit isn't listed. It's for a Westernfield labelled Mossberg bolt action number 47c. Of the one's listed, there is one sized for a Mossberg. A no. 14 fits a Mossberg 146. I'd like to hear from an expert or someone with any experience before I buy one. Thanks.

    I've always gone to a gun smith and had him put several on to see what is the most comfortable.

    Note of STRONG caution- be sure the width of the shoe does not exceed the width of the trigger guard.

    Years ago I saw a Federal Agent blow the back out of a nice suit coat when replacing his revolver in a shoulder holster. Trigger shoe was snagged by edge of holster.

    Thanks for the response guys. One of the sellers seems to be offering a variety of sizes. I'll message him and see what he has to say. I can tell you this, .180 is a narrow trigger and makes squeezing a shot uncomfortable.

    most trigger shoe's are machined for boht width and curvature, you have to match both.
