    Just installed this trigger in my Mil-Spec.It seems to be sticking out of the frame too far.Is that normal ? Should the 2 small holes be exposed like that ? View attachment 188768

    JMHO, but it looks fine to me. Adjust the over travel screw until the trigger breaks correctly w/o issues. If the pin holes are still visible, call Wilson. They will most likely be able to give you a definitive answer. HTH. Sincerely. Brucev.

    Looks like a long trigger. You may want a medium if you dont want to see that.

    I have never seen that much of the back of the trigger be exposed before. Looks like something is out of whack to me.

    I was told by a gunsmith on another forum that it is normal for that particular trigger.
    Thanks for the replies...:wavey:

    It does look kind goofy but it's not like you can cut some length out of the bow and reweld it. Unless you're Chuck.

    Schooling is good! I install short solid triggers on all of my 1911s, it is good to learn something new about the long triggers.
