How light of a trigger is everyone running?

Recommended Posts

Both my limited 2011s are right at 2 pounds. Totally safe and keeps you honest during movement and reloads.

Koenig hammer, Extreme Ultra light sear, Extreme Disconnector Wolff 15# main spring.

it's the same set that i have with few different parts and #13 lb main spring. but  i checked it with 1lb t. pull weight and it worked , but i almost don't feel the trigger of 2011 platform with 1lb  trigger  and  1/16" travel.

i adjusted it to 1lb 6oz.

I have 9oz. take up the rest on the sear and enough pre travel to allow the half cock to work.

Dang that’s light. That’s right around what my Precision bolt gun is set at.

I have my SV open guns set to 18ozs.   Roughly 11 oz of take up pressure, 7 more ozs of final brake  pressure.

under a timer you wont tell the difference in 1/2 lb high or low in my opinion

 

 

I can feel the difference, if I pick up a gun that is 1/2 lbs off of mine. My hits wont show a difference, but I'll be able to tell it's there.

I have my trigger set at 2 - 2 1/4 lbs and that feels good to me. I like a more positive reset that I have with the higher trigger weight and knowing that hammer follow wont be an issue. I've had my trigger down around 13oz and everywhere in between and from what I've noticed is trigger weight isn't all that important its how the trigger functions that matters. The only time it makes sense to me to have a sub 1lb trigger in a handgun is for bullseye shooting.

All but one of my 1911s has been tuned to 22 oz (+/- .5). The one that is not is my carry gun, it's at 3lb. My CZ is 18oz but has a longer pull than my 1911s.

 glock full striker engagement without external safety , a bit dangerous for me.  but J.G. master and he   knows  what he's  doing.👍

I love it. Shouldn't need an external safety in my opinion. We all know what happens when the trigger is pulled.

Just got my open gun back from the smith and he’s got the trigger set at about 18ozs. It doesn’t feel to light either imo. Extreme hammer, sear and disconnector, SV bow, and I think he said he uses a 16lb main spring. The main spring seems a bit light, but what do I I know, I’m no custom gun smith. As long as it reliably sets off the primers I use I’ll be happy. If not, I have no problem going up to a 19 or so. I really wouldn’t mind if the trigger pull went up a few ozs.
