    except for the military rear sight and the curved mainspring housing your unit is a practical series single stack cal 45.

    DIY trigger job?
    AFAICT... you can try to:

    1. Polish the trigger bow/stirrup and corresponding channel
    in the frame, without killing the corners, and without making
    the trigger-to-frame fit sloppy
    . Some smiths buy a trigger
    with an oversize bow/stirrup, then file it and the frame's channel
    true, to a close fit, lap lightly and clean thoroughly before lubing
    for use.

    2. Ever so slightly deform the trigger leaf-spring, without
    really changing its apparent curvature
    , to reduce the
    compression required to pull the trigger. Don't go too far,
    or you blunder headfirst into ugly/kinky land.

    3. Some claim a lighter-rated mainspring helps (some swear by
    a 19 pounder, others go nuts and clip a bit off the end of the
    factory spring), but I can't understand how lightening the
    (roughly 21 pound) factory MS can much improve the trigger.

    4. Polish the sear engagement surface, without changing its
    actual contour/angle
    . If you go too far, you will get
    potentiallydangerous malfunctions. It helps if the sear pin holes
    in the frame are dead level. If they are crooked to begin with...
    ugh, the sear edge will have to follow suit.

    5. Polish the hammer hooks without changing their angle/curve.
    If the hooks are 'longer than .021" (measuring from the hook tips to
    the 'hub' of the hammer, you can try to gradually stone/polish it
    down to .021" protrusion and no further, again, without changing the
    initial angle/curvature. Go too far you will ruin the firearm and get
    potentially dangerous malfunctions. If you don't have the means to
    measure that accurately and precisely, nor have the means to ensure
    you don't take off too much metal (feeler gauge, what?) then don't
    even try this.

    6. Lightly polish the sides of the hammer. Hey, why not lightly
    polish all engagement surfaces?

    7. Lube light with light lube-- you don't want a tar pit in there,
    trapping retardant junk for paleontological posterity.


    OR....
    just have a competent and honorable gunsmith tackle it.

    YMMV, TANSTAAFL, etc.

    In case it isn't clear, I don't recommend kitchen-table trigger jobs.

    Tama si horge. Baka kasi mag-fullauto yung 1911 mo if you botched the trigger job.

    There was a time na 'yung rental 1911 (Colt mix) sa PBDionisio,
    sobrang light ng trigger. Puro unintended doubletap tuloy ang wife ko
    d'un. Not all renters shoot to compete naman, e, 'di ba?

    She was all excited pa naman about 1911's up 'til that point.
    Sayang talaga, kasi when cajoled into it, she shoots well enough
    naman using 1911's with a factory 4.5 trigger.
    :sad:

    Since you are curious with the trigger job, when you ask your gunsmith to do it, stay and watch. It would be hitting two birds with one stone. You paid him to do it and at the same time learning from that experience.
