    I was thinking to do a refinishing to one of my 1911s & just wonder if disassembling the parts from the frame will affect a trigger job that is already done?

    If so, then I may not do it. Thanks in advance.

    As long as the trigger shoe & bow channels are not effected, trigger pull will not be changed.

    So, you mean if I take them off & did not do any changes on those parts mentioned, then when I put everything back together it should stay the same?

    Thanks :)

    You mentioned refinishing, are you refinishing the frame?

    Yes. I have taken my carry gun apart hundreds of times and I still have a glass rod trigger break.

    Depending on what finish you apply, you may need to smooth out the trigger channel and the frame where the sear and hammer go or ream out the pin holes. This applies to Cerakote or finishes like it (paint) but not to finishes like bluing or parkerizing.

    Yes, planning to do a cerakote or Black T (Birdsong) finish.
