    Well I got my new trigger in, It is a colt, long, aluminum, serrated, and black trigger. It feels much better and it breaks clean. This was my first 1911 mod, and won't be the last. Thanks Quack for all the help. Took me 30 mins from dis assembly to reassembly.

    I may replace in the future, since it has gaps on the top and bottom. But it works and looks good enough for now.

    Quack helped you and still didn't force you to get one of those silly flat triggers that only he uses?

    The small ones between the top and bottom of the trigger, Or if you wiggle it up or down, the bigger gap on either the top or bottom. That sounded pretty confusing yes?:supergrin: IT isn't very visible in the pics.

    if it move's up/down, you took too much off the trigger shoe.

    I didn't take any off at all. Must be colt triggers are under sized.

    I'll just chalk this up as a very Inexpensive way to make sure I can do it and make sure I like a long trigger before buying a 40 dollar one and filing it down.
