    I'd always thought a properly good trigger job on a 1911 involved skill and some measure of pixie dust that only the worthy could receive. However, I recently decided to give it a try and learn the skill (because I had exactly one gun I wanted to have a better pull). I purchased an Ed Brown...

    This thread could also be titled 'Thad Wins the Lottery'. A couple months ago, my well-worn Springfield Government .45 broke due to crappy aftermarket parts. The hammer hooks sheared right off, and so did the entire engagement section of the sear. I posted some photos of the parts along with...

    Long story warning: a few year ago this J frame 342 was stolen out of my wife’s vehicle. I have some friends in the local sheriffs office, turns out not 24 hours later they were caught with a bunch of stolen weapons (They even had audacity to film a “rap video” with all of them including this...

    I wouldn't call this a trigger job --as it started out as a trigger swap -- but I did polish the bows with 800 grit Scotchbrite and then finished the sides and rear of the trigger bow in Flitz, it was like polished glass. Then I addressed the part of the disconnector the rests on the rear of the...

    I have been working on my Ed Brown trigger for over 4 hours today trying to determine why I am getting hammer follow to the half cock notch. I have been doing trigger work on 1911's for over 20 years and never had this problem . The darn thing would even follow when I had the trigger pull at...

    Sending in my Falcon Commander back to the mothership for a minor warranty issue and I figure while it's there I'll have them install a long solid trigger and do a trigger job on it. Honestly the trigger on the gun has never been great, my DW's were far better and it's light years off the Ed...

    Total noob question but I want to make sure before I order another hammer. I had a trigger job done but I want to put a different hammer. Would this effect my trigger pull?
