    1911 Wilson Combat parts

    I have a 1911. I bought a whole bunch of Wilson Combat parts.

    Trigger, sear, disconnect, hammer, and spring kit.

    Trigger sear and disconnect are in.

    Other parts are back ordered.

    Trigger pull went up with new parts.

    Going to disassemble and lube and reinstall and check again.

    Original pull was 5 now it's 7.5. I know the parts aren't stopped to be b drop in but I was going replacing all the parts would get me close.

    So, do the sear disconnect and Hammer need fitting and polishing or should they be ready to go from the factory?

    I had to fit the trigger into place, I was under the impression that was all the fitting that was required.

    Could someone please tell me that the new hammer and spring kit will lower it back down to 3lbs ???

    Thanks

    Moe

    Hey Moe,

    Take a look at this

    https://www.amazon.com/Colt-45-autom.../dp/B0006EVYAU

    The trigger should slide of its own weight.

    Take a look at the main spring (in the main spring housing). It may be "extra strong".

    Look at the "left hand" leaf of the THREE LEAF SPRING.. It should be slightly arched.

    Examine the SEAR/HAMMER engagement surfaces CLOSELY.

    Is the hammer "stirrup" pin flush on both sides? Is the disconnector tunnel free of debris? Is the middle leaf of the THREE LEAF SPRING too "taut"?

    Hope this helps.

    Later, Mark

    Thanks Mark.

    The spring kit I am waiting for is going to help a lot of this as well.

    Just waiting for it to get here. Optics planet had great pricing.

    Just a couple things out of stock.

    That's what makes this fun. If the worst thing I mess up is the trigger them it was 40 bucks to learn more about how this gun works.

    If I'm not happy i go to a Smith with the same parts and a new trigger and say here. Make it work lol

    Hey Moe,

    Forgot this.

    Roll the Sear & Hammer PINS on a small mirror. Make sure they are "straight". (a bent pin is a real ......... pain in the ........neck)
