When i "slowly" lower the hammer to half/cock on my TRS and think it has travled all it will, i take my thumb off, and it jumps forward just a tad more.. I push on it to see if it will keep going but it doesn`t go any further so it seems to be engaging fine but im bit concerned.. It isn`t noticable when i let it come to half/cock with a little more force.. Any thoughts? -Gilmore

Same reply, different forum
......

My GUESS is that the sear may not may not be stoned or shaped evenly on both sides, or same with the hammer hooks. When you first let go of the hammer, only one hook may have full contact with the sear, then when you release the hammer, it seats itself fully on both hooks and sear surfaces.
Also, the sear itself may be offset (offset sear pin holes in frame?)

Do you have another sear you can drop in just for comparison sake?

Adjustable trigger? If so, it may be barely releasing the sear, so back it off a turn. If not,let someone look at it that knows 1911's really well. If you need to go inside the gun, call Baer and send it back.

Just to let you know, the easiest way to ruin a good trigger job is to halfcock your 1911a1.

It is a safety and not a way to carry it, it takes the same amount of time to fully cock it from the hammer down position.

The slot in the sear will wear on the honed surface of the hammer and eventually ruin the glass break trigger let off.
