Re: 1911 porn

You're looking at a stainless Wilson Combat trigger, competition hammer, and smooth carbon fiber grips. You can't see the new sear and hammer strut.

The trigger took a good bit of filing on the bow, It was a little to tall, and a hair to wide. The sear has a little more meat on the safety block side than the original as well. I don't know howmany of you, if any, remember my issue with the safety, but my original safety was a ground a little much and allowed enough slack in the sear movement to drop the hammer if yoi handled it enough. I was able to do minor trimming to the original and make it work with the new sear. I had replaced it already and was not able to use the tight fitting replacement.

Other than those 2, everything else fit in there like it was suppose to.

Really nice gun !! The grips are smooth, but almost have a snake skin look to them.....what are they?

Carbon fiber

The pics don't do them justice. The CF is made from fiberglass looking mat stuff that's weaved very tightly, but instead of fiberglass, it's a type carbon strands with loads of epoxy.

The pictures really don't do them justice ...

Thank you all. :)

My only complaint with all the new goodies is the trigger has a little much take-up for my liking. I'll figure something out for it though.

The hammer fit in place like it was made to. It was a tight fit, but it fit in there just right.

You're not a fan of the SS accents? I must admit, I was a little sceptical about them. I think the hammer looks a lot better than the trigger.

I gave them just under 200 bucks for all that stuff. The grips were about half of it.

The sear had a little more meat on it where the safety engages it, so I took my old safety and ground a little more off it to make it work.
