    I recently purchased a SA 1911 in 9mm. The gun is amazing(fit and finish), but the trigger is heavy. We measured the trigger pull today at 7+ lbs. It breaks clean, but it takes 2 men and a small boy to pull it...

    Anyone else out there experience this?
     
  2. Take it to a smith for stoning of the hammer/sear. They'll also likely adjust your sear tension, but that's best to do after the trigger is cleaned up. Probably cost ya on the closer side to $100.

    Cylinder & Slide makes a matched set that is "drop in" and
    provides a 4lb trigger. You may get good results with a quality
    sear spring also. Be sure to accomplish a safety check following work.

    Contact SA and tell them the trigger pull weight is out of spec.
    They should offer to make it right.

    Thanks for the input everyone. I talked to a friend that does a lot of work on 1911's and he told me to lose the locking MSH and that may help out too??? He is gonna do a full trigger job after I run about 500 rounds through it.

    I had the same issue with my 45 loaded target. I called Springfield and they paid shipping both ways and I had it back (with a 4lb pull) in 2 weeks. Total cost to me--$0.

    Not unusual for Loadeds and Mil-Specs to have heavy triggers.
    Spec for those models is 5-6 lbs. As noted, SA will make it right at their expense.

    Changing the mainspring from the factory 28 pounder to a 23 pounder was worth 2 (two) ounces in trigger pull on my Mil-Spec. The pull out-of-the-box was 8+ pounds. SA got it to just under 5 lbs.
