Trigger - Recommend about 4 lbs
If you want a trigger job I advocate taking it to a skilled gunsmith, as this job is difficult and poor workmanship can lead to dangerous problems, such as multiple shots with one trigger pull.

I once owned a Colt 1911 that a previous owner had set to a 2.5 lb. trigger pull, and it kept going off prematurely for me because I couldn't seem to adjust my touch to such a light pull.
