i changed out the trigger in my pro carry for a cmc lwt trigger. it felt fine at home, but when i took it to the range last night, i noticed something right away. after i pull the trigger and the gun fires, i feel a sort of spongy, rubbery feeling while the trigger is still depressed. i do not feel it when at the beginning of my pull, just at the end. what can i do to remedy this. it drove me crazy the first shot out. i put the old kimber trigger in my colt lwt commander and it feels fine. so, as i said before, please help me!!!!

maybe remove it altogether?

When I swapped for a short trigger I had the same feel untill the travel stop was adjusted properly, taking it out would probably change nothing as it sounds like it isn't screwed in far enough to even be doing anything.
But I've been wrong before

hmmmm. when i first installed it, i checked to make sure that the hammer would drop, and at first it would not, so i backed the screw out a bit. then it worked. feels more like the channel that the trigger pad rides in is rubbing against the trigger pad. maybe i'll take my stone to it and maybe smooth it out. thanks.

Ahhh if that's the case than I was misunderstanding what you'd said. I thought you meant it was spongy after you'd dropped the hammer. Maybe just take the gun down and make sure there aren't any crud deposits or anything in there. If it was smooth before then got spongy there is probably a reason.

Take it completely apart and examine everything...Start over and make sure you clean all the crap out of all those passages that you had opened up to change parts...Something could be in the works or between the frame and parts...Just don't keep shootin' the dang thing...

Take out the grip safety and dry fire it (hold the hammer though).See if the trigger bow is picking up the sear (left) leaf of the spring.If so,tighten up the overtravel screw far enough to miss the halfcock notch,then add 1/4-1/2 turn for some slack.

Drop it by a gunsmith. Trigger jobs are not something to be done at home. I have seen a few 1911's for full auto and its not pretty. Your problem could be any number of things. Trust me.
