I haven't had experience with many 1911's, but, of the ones I have: My Springfield EMP 3 9mm came in at about five pounds, but it had zero creep. Every other one of my 1911's was four pounds or under. Only my Kimber Custom II GFO's trigger wasn't clean. (Even then: It wasn't creepy, per se, but had an odd, intermittent "hitch" in it.)So, after contacting Fowler, I was told that they keep their triggers on the heavier side for liability reasons and duty use.
Will they take out the creep, too?And if I wanted to pay shipping, they would lighten it for me.
I'd just take it to my local 1911 smith. I'd have it back in 1-2 weeks and the trigger would be a perfect four pounds - plus-or-minus an ounce or so.
That would annoy me, as well. That mag would be suitable for no more than punching paper. Not suitable for duty or SD use. Not suitable for competition. Never mind one mag with a $4k gun?Duty use???? A $4k gun that comes with a non lock back mag?
Even my Staccato R, which I think of as "a duty gun with race gun ambitions" , has a trigger just under four pounds. Breaks like glass, too. And was less than $2k.... Staccato 2 1/2 pounds on their competition guns.
For $4k, I'd be a lot more than "not very happy." Particularly in light of their response.Needless to say, I am not very happy with that answer.
Thanks for playing forum Guinea Pig. Sorry it turned out for you the way it did
