Nitron Rail... first 1911... questions

Can't complete sentences...

I just purchased my first 1911/ SIG Nitron Rail. I love it, however the trigger is a little too long to fit my smallish hands. I don't want to use slimmer grips to try and fix the problem. Is the OEM trigger/sear set matched well enough to warrant grinding the factory trigger down to size from the front? Or might I be better served by purchasing a wilson or ed brown medium sized trigger, and then having a gunsmith make everything right?

I am completely new to 1911s, and have little-to-no knowledge of their internal workings. I just know that I like like guns that fit my hand properly.. and a shorter trigger should be the ticket.

The matching is done with the sear and hammer, you can get a medium length trigger and put in it no problem. You just "tweak" the bow slightly if needed.

Most triggers won't drop in. You will probably have to cut the trigger pad down to fit the frame. You will have to adjust the over travel screw. If the trigger bow on the new trigger is too long you will lose some trigger pre travel and have to file the sear legs to compensate. It's usually not that easy to do.

Not a disgruntled former Sig employee.
