    I installed a new trigger on my colt 1911, after I did the trigger swap the mag release is harder to press and the mag wont drop freely as it did before the swap. Any ideas?

    It's more than likely the trigger bow. Remove the trigger and slide the magazine through it. If it hangs up, adjust the bow very carefully until there is no drag.

    Most likely the trigger bow.
    I have a Wilson mag that will not drop free, it is marked. Use it
    for range use only.
