Actually, it is Gabriel who is associated with blowing the trumpet to announce the Second Coming of Christ, which IS associated with the Judgment, but it's not FOR judgement that he trumpets, but for annunciation.

Michael is associated with the Judgement because of the mention of him in Revelation regarding his battle with Satan. Many believe it is he who blows the trumpet which calls forth the dead and the living to account for their lives. But...

Muslim lore speaks of another angel named Israfil who will blow the actual trumpet of Judgement.

The New Testament Bible speaks of the angel of the Judgement trumpet as "the seventh angel" in Revelation, and since there are numbered seven archangels (highest ranking angels), it may be neither Gabriel or Michael, but Israfil after all.
