Anyone know where I can get the trigger from the Target version. The trigger on my regular 5" SW1911 is a little scratched up and ugly. I like the target version's better.

How hard is it to install a trigger?

The trigger on Target is McCormick

and you can get it from Adjax for 15 bucks. To install it, you have to know how to dis/assembly the gun, but in order to do a trigger job, you would be better off with a professional gunsmith.

I sure like your pic bluewater, to tell you the truth I saved it on my HD and watch it for 10min every day, it gets me going through the day while I wait anxious on receiving my own

a week ago I heard that there are no SW1911 target versions on Belgian ground, only regular SW1911's, but I already have enough fixed sight guns so I am waiting for at least 2 months

could you shoot another pic of your gun of the same quality, but from the right side? at least if it is not too much of a hassle

1911Sc

Just picked mine up Tuesday. Gotta love living in Az, no waiting period. Already I put Slimline Alumagrips on it for my small hands. I might even go with a Burns Custom short trigger. But, I figure I'll have to shoot it before I do anything else with it.

You won't be sorry you did. My full size is the most accurate firearm I've ever owned. The 945 is top notch.

Those 645s are really nice pieces. I want to get some one to mill off the squared trigger guard to round some day.

BTW, K1mri, I like the grips; are they from Esmeralda?
hello, could you give me some tips to remove the satin finish from my SW 1006 ? i would like to have it hard chrome finish too

Isn't the 1006 Stainless Steel? Just get it polished.

yep, its stainless steel. I was accepting hints on how to get it polished actually, in order to do a good job.

APW Cogan. If it were me I'd let them do it. Or Tripp Research.

Hardchrome

Matt.ts
I have had pistols plated in hardchrome by Tripp, Metalife, and Metaloy. The finish can be matte, satin, or high-polished, or any combination thereof. I prefer the matte finsh, although I had satin slide flats on the SW1911. The SW1911 was plated by Metalife. All three platers do a great job, IMO, but the colors vary somewhat. Metaloy is the lightest silver, very similar to stainless; Tripp is a little darker; and Metaloy is the darkest. Tripp is also a terrific full service gunsmith. I like all three platers, and would use any of them again, although Metalife and Tripp's prices are lower. Even though the SW1911 is stainless, I chose to have it hard-chromed because I wanted the billboard removed and didn't like the two-tone appearance. However, I believe that there are also avantages to hard-chroming stainless pistols rather than just steel pistols. The hard-chrome finish is much more scratch-resistant than stainless, in my experience, and there is purportedly less friction between hard-chromed parts. My Combat Commander is also stainless, and I had it hard-chromed by Tripp (along with having the front strap checkered and an extended thumb safety), and I am very pleased with the results.

Here's my daily carry piece:

S&W 1911SC.

Short Grieder trigger
Heinie tritium 8's
Cylinder & Slide Hammer, sear, disconnect, strut
extended mag catch
rounded MSH
light dehorn of slide
Slim grips
4.5# trigger job
Protective crown on barrel
Cobracoat frame in black
Slide and parts in satin hard chrome

I did all the work myself, with Tripp doing the finishing. I'm not overly fond of the 2-tone finish, but I'll get used to it.

Very nice. I like the two tone on it. I'll bet it lost the warning also. Real sharp.
