    I never had much interest in 1911's until seeing the OP's pictures. Now I want one!

    "Accepted industry standard" is a reason to have your gun altered? Guess I didn't get that memo... I'll keep mine the way I like them.

    I'm interested in hearing why he was told he should have it taken back to 4# because of industry standards. A finger on the trigger of a 1911 with even an 8# pull is going to go bang with very little effort in a high-stress situation.

    I have 2 customs set at 3-3/4# and I have NO intentions of having them set heavier. Justified is justified IMO.

    Can you explain why he should have this done?

    I guess you didn’t...

    I’ve been building World Class pistols for over 30 years now. Pistols used for Duty, Carry and War. I'm a Tactical Firearms Trainer and retired Pro-Shooter. I've watched people accidentally shoot themselves. I've seen World Champions have A.D.'s in matches. I know other Top Gunsmiths and Trainers who agree with what I say. But hey, don’t take my word for it:

    D.R I respect what you do and what you have done, but that doesn't answer the question. An Accidental Discharge is usually a Negligent Discharge caused by the trigger being pulled. Trigger weight not being the reason.

    I'm not questioning your knowledge, but simply seeking the reason why.

    OK, no problem. But we probably should start a new thread on this very subject. Whatdayathink?
