Short Trigger Install on Ultra Carry




Installed a Greider short trigger on my Crimson Ultra Carry II today. Just a little work with the file, not too bad at all. Pre travel with no manipulation (greider doesn't have the tabs) matched stock kimber trigger within .005. But to my surprise the kimber factory adjustment on the pre-travel/ takeup tabs seemed to be set to .040, less than the .060 everyone on this forum has recommended. Gun has approx 1600 rounds with factory trigger with no problems. The Greider measures slightly more with .045. Passes all function and safety checks. Let me know what you all think.

Looks very nice. It takes me a few rounds to get adjusted to a short trigger since most of my guns are the long trigger. Have you shot it yet?

I have not shot it yet, but will report back once I do. Plan to take it slow at first with only 2 rounds in the mag for a bit just to be safe.
