Yes you can have a short trigger put in your gun. If you have a local smith I would recommend you have him do the work. I might add with good quality parts its not a problem to set a trigger as light as two pounds. This light of trigger should be reserved for a competition gun only.

Short, Medium, Long, or Extra Long... Narrow, Match, Wide... Smooth or Serrated, Solid, or Lightened... whatever you can imagine, whatever fits you best, you can have... That's the nice thing about the 1911's, they can be made to suit the individual.

I'd leave the trigger pull alone unless you or your friend really knows what they're doing, it's easy to screw up the leaf spring, and cause other problems, or an unsafe condition.

Enjoy!

Some where in this forum is detailed instructions on how to fit a new trigger to a 1911. You can do a search for the thread.

Jim V;

I did a search for the thread that you mentioned on installing a trigger with no success. Would you be able to point me to it?

Thanks either way.

There seems to be a myth about voiding the warranty of Les Baer guns if someone else works on them. The last time I talked to the Les Baer people, they said it was not true. You only void the warranty on the part that a smith works on--if it's the trigger itself, no big deal.
