Curious lang, paano b ginagawa ang trigger job?
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
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.
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.
e di ba yan nga maganda?
Yung nag full-auto baril ko tinigil ako ng RO eh.
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.
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.
