    I'm surprised no one has posted yet.

    These are the types of gun that appeal to me nowadays.
    You've built a very nice example.

    Just my style - unless you have gorilla hand short triggers are better- anyone regardless of hand size can handle the gun which is not the case with long triggers. And here in the north I have gloves on often in winter. Shooting with gloves on is good practice and the short trigger makes this much easier.
    While deployed in the military gloves are worn for protection regardless of season and I noticed the first pics of the marsoc colt showed a short trigger which makes a lot more sense than the long trigger shown on later models

    Love those short Harrison triggers! I think my favorite 1911 is my
    recently acquired Colt, just enough modern touches with all the classic lines.
    Sometimes, simple is just better,........:supergrin:

    FAAWRENCHBNDR is this the way this Colt came out of the box? if yes do you have a model # ? I have a liking for the simple look now, I need a long trigger though. :rofl:

    The same boring perfection, minute of turbine oil can bouncing across the desert to 80' or so.

    Looks great FLIPPER, never tried a short trigger although I have fairly good sized hands.
