I'm thinking of getting a KZ full size. However, I prefer shooting with a short trigger and an arched mainspring housing on my regular 1911s. I always change these out because that is just works for me. Can the current Wilson long trigger and their straight mainspring housing be switched out easily?

Thanks in advance.

No on both. The MSH is semi-proprietary to fit the grip and pin placement, and the trigger is a pain to get out, period, let alone find a replacement for. If you have the dough, though, it can be done. The easiest way would be to have both a new trigger shoe and MSH manufactured.

Good luck. Get your hands on one before you buy.

Wilson got his start building "custom" guns. Before giving up on the idea, I would contact Wilson Combat and see if they would be willing to "customize" a KZ-45. No doubt they will charge you for the custom work, but then everyone charges extra for "custom" work.

Thanks guys. I've found that the 1911 straight mainspring housing that everyone places on now points low for me. That is why I prefer the arched one. I'll have to find someone that has one so I can see how it points for me.

LToled,

Something to consider is that you are trainable. A few years back I switched from 1911s, which I had carried for over 20 years, to Glocks. They didn't point right for me but with a lot of dry firing practice in addition to live fire, I re-trained myself to point the Glocks "naturally".

After 4 years of drastic plastic I switched back to the 1911. Initially they didn't point as naturally as they once did but a couple months of shooting brought back the old comfort level of the 1911.

Realated to your problem, I always used a flat mainspring housing and the Glock is quite different. When I went back to 1911s it was again with the flat mainspring housing. My point is, it can be learned.
