I am thinking of having a trigger job done on my stock Colt 1991 but I have read statement's by some pistolsmith's that the trigger, sear, disconnector, and hammer need to be replaced with part's that are hardened all the way through because the factory parts are just surface hardened and that the trigger job will only last a few thousand rounds with the factory parts. Is this true?

No, not true. Smiths have been doing trigger jobs using stock Colt parts for years. If you have one of the real late models, Colt may have put some of the CMC MIM parts in, since they've been using some CMC stuff lately, and there are varying opinions as to their quality, but the traditional Colt internals are good parts.

If it is good trigger/action job you seek and if you want someone who will be brutally honest with you, contact Teddy Jacobson with Actions by T. He does some of the best action work around and tells it like it is (form his perspective, of course).
