    Hello. Are you referring to the McCormick trigger?

    Best.

    No not trigger Steve - I fitted that some while ago but kept original, which of course would go back in to revert to full spec'.

    The ''problem'' is more subtle!

    Unless it's the picture, the magazine catch lock looks like it maybe "buggered." Also the hammer pin looks like it's in backwards and I don't see the thumb safety pin, nor any markings on the receiver.

    Other than what OD mentioned, I don't see the sear-pin (?) either, did you blur that stuff out?
    Um...the hex-head screws on the grips aren't original.

    That it is a 1911? That on itself is plenty wrong!
