    I plan on swapping to a shorter trigger and picked up the atlas one. Is that ok or are there better (metal) possibly that may be better? If i am going to swap parts, i should consider all choices. Thanks again appreciate all the support here!!!

    Are the trigger bows for Para/Remington, RIA, and Caspian double stack frames the same width or proprietary to each manufacturer?

    I just received the below in my e-mail inbox. The recall does not effect me, but I figure maybe someone in the forum could use the information. Apologies for the way the email is in separate pictures. I could not save it on my IPad, so I screen shot my way through the e-mail so all information...

    Looking to upgrade my AR trigger but I’m unsure of which one to use any recommendations would be appreciated.

    I have another post about my nephew and his new Tisas 1911 Tanker. I am following up with this one to kind of tell what I found and ask a few questions, and maybe someone can answer a question I did not know I had. I will be comparing what I find in his to my Ruger 1911 Full size (5") The...

    I realize it's probably associated with the trigger. Is it a pretravel or overtravel adjuster?

    I am trying to get some measurements on a couple of items. I dont have these, and just doing some dream/planning. What are the widths of the magazines for the following Double stacks, the Caspian, the 2011, and the Glock 21? What is the inner width of the trigger bow of the Caspian and the...

    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 a Ruger SR1911 Target Model. I like everything about it a lot. My only complaint is the trigger could be better. It’s light enough; it just doesn’t have a crisp break. I don’t want a trigger job. I’m wondering if an aftermarket trigger could give me that glass rod I’d like. If so, what...

    I hate to admit this, but before yesterday I had never fully taken down a Series 80 gun before. Half of this is due to my LACK of Series 80's guns, the other half was from the fear and trepidation of the thought of trying to get all those extra bits and pieces put back together properly. I...

    Stupid question / poll of the day. It's sure to create some controversy. When installing a trigger overtravel screw, do I run it in from the front, or draw in forward from the rear? What say you?

    An alternate thread bestowing the virtues of a new members acquisition of a DW Guardian and his trigger laments wrought forth in me enough curiosity to exchange a trigger in one of mine. Both of these had stock Dan Wesson triggers yesterday. Now one is different. Trouble is, I don't really...

    Bought this cause I wanted to see one in hand. Personally it's a great idea and if I were starting over I'd put these in every 1911 I own. I test fit it in Colt, LB, and DW...the pins line up perfectly in all those I tested. Asking $200.00 shipped, that's a Franklin off retail. Or I would trade...

    It's very simple actually. Here they are . . . . . . This . . . . . . . . . and this . . . . . Okay, so I need to know how you guys adjust these pre-travel tabs on YOUR triggers without turning the trigger bow into a pretzel. My needle nose pliers jaws are a little wider that that...

    I'd like to send the gun off with some newer parts, it's been sitting around unfired for a long time. Sight set, 10-8 makes a heftier rear sight that will fit the Government cut, leaning that direction. Would like to have a fiber optic front sight which will require a cut, not a problem, but...

    So, I've got a Springfield LB Operator and I think it needs a trigger job. Or at least I feel like it needs to be improved for me to be happy with it. I'm almost at 1000 rounds (easily twice that in dry fire) and I'm thinking it's not going to get any better than it is right now. The gun has a...

    I've had several 1911 pistols over the past 15 years.. I'm going to build out my next one this winter and wanted to hear opinions on running a flat trigger, I've shot a few but never took the time to notice the nuances of the design. I'm going to add some 10-8 goodies to this build and they...
