Trigger Guard
Trigger guard of a SG 550 rifle

A trigger guard is a loop surrounding the trigger of a firearm and protecting it from accidental discharge.[1]

Some firearms may have their trigger guard removed or repositioned as not to impair use with large cold weather gloves on, especially those intended to be used in arctic conditions.

Quite notably, the Arctic Warfare line of rifles have enlarged trigger guards for use in cold climates, primarily northern Sweden.
