Default 1911 Trigger

I have a S&W 1911 SC Series E. It is a scandium-framed commander-sized .45 that has a bobtailed grip frame. I carry it more than any other gun. My only problem with it is the long trigger. I can shoot it pretty well, but should shoot it better after installing the short trigger. It's not a small job. Just about everything in the frame has to be removed: grips, mainspring housing, grip safety, both manual safety levers, magazine catch, hammer, sear, disconnector, mainspring and trigger. The one I ordered is a match trigger. It will have to be fitted and polished so it fits in the frame without excessive up & down play and so that it doesn't drag on the inside of the frame or the magazine. It will be a few days before I get it. When I do, it should keep me busy for awhile. I did this on an old beater ATI Commander-sized pistol, but it was easier. I bought a drop-in trigger that didn't require fitting. When I get it, I will continue this story with some photos.

Fitting a 1911 trigger is more time consuming than any thing. Take your time and it will turn out great.

Keep us posted on your progress.
