Man, I hope that Nighthawk trigger works well. Any idea what the trigger pull weight is on those? The problem is I know exactly what kind of 1911 trigger pull and weight I like. All my 1911s are range guns only and I prefer a small amount of pretravel with a short roll, a 2.0-2.5 pound break and a short, but not crazy short, reset. Doubt I can order that on a drop in unit.
Regards,
Jeff

In for the review.

My only criticism is that this part costs about the same money as sending your gun to a smith to do a traditional trigger job. On the other hand, this DIY upgrade would be faster to do.

Easy enough to drop out and into a cup of degunker.

So how do you touch up the sear nose and hammer hooks when they need it? Or do you just spend another $300 to 'drop in' another set?

True but, other issues come to mind, no adjustment, so what you get is what you get.. no way of really inspecting sear to hook engagement and or trajectory.. Not saying it won't work, but the spring system comes to question with me to.. I'd really like to know your thoughts after you install.. I'd actually appreciate a call if you would..

My thoughts as well, does it just last as long as it does and that's it? What happens with the springs weaken? Or gets a kink? Number of questions on this one.. over travel adjustment comes to mind as well... It does look interesting.. I guess we will see but it would take some real time to test this one out.

How many people actually shoot their 1911s enough to need a sear nose touch up?

I would imagine most of the guys shooting enough to need tune ups on barrel fit and trigger component wear have a trusted smith that would use and not be into a drop in trigger kit.

My guess is that if this proves reasonably successful it will be like all other new technology in the sense cost will fall dramatically. High cost now is to recoup development & marketing dollars.
