SR1911 9mm trigger pull

Anybody here have one with a really light trigger? I just happened to look at one yesterday, the trigger pull blew me away. There were two others in stock that we tried, and neither were as light as the one on display. I could only guess, but it felt to be about 3 lbs. I mean really light compared to most SR1911s I've looked at.

Just curious if anyone else has one with a really light trigger pull. I have it on hold for me, hopefully picking it up this week.

Mine breaks at 3.75#, but that's because I've messed with it. Before I worked on it, it broke at around 4.5# with a little bit of creep.. It has none now..

I just picked one up today and noticed the trigger pull is light but I bet it is because of the lighter hammer spring in the 9mm.

Mine is right at 4.5 lbs. It's fine as is.

Mine seemed lighter than what you would think the factory should be but it checks out at 4#.

might be worth questioning further

Just me personally, but if I found a factory new pistol with a greatly lighter trigger than the others like it, I might suspect something is awry. Though we all look for light, crisp triggers, with the control Ruger has in the process, the triggers should all fall in a controlled range. One that is grossly out of that might have an issue. I would like the option to make sure the parts are correct (such as gunsmith or competent prospective owner inspection) before I would accept it. Having said that, if it checks out, what a great find!

My Ruger CMD had a "3 stage" trigger when I got it new, but I knew it could be cleaned up easily. It was a good deal pricewise so it left me budget room for improvement. Instead, I decided to look for my self. I just did a very little bit of stoning cleanup on the offending parts and the trigger cleaned right up. I am very happy with it and it is one of my more accurate 1911s.

Haven't ranged mine yet, but dry firing on snap cap seems the trigger is ok. I don't have gauge, but a little lighter than my Colt Commander was.

+1 on Post No.7. On production guns you don't never know what you're going to get and Ruger is famous for "dropping in" parts and calling it good enough. The main thing that you must check is if the thumb safety is functioning absolutely correctly. And Ruger seems to be "dropping" those in too.

For 1911s less than about $1.5K I like to look at them before I buy even if it costs me a little more. Rugers for sure fall in that class although I have bought several nice SR1911s.
