Who will do the fitting or do you expect these parts to drop in without fitting?

Your hammer follow could be as simple as a miss-adjusted sear spring.

You may well have blown a bunch of money for nothing.

In any case and with any parts, the hammer and trigger sear angles must be right or you could have hammer follow.

Your sear spring must also be adjusted correctly; if not, this could very well cause hammer follow.

I hope I haven't offended you but just wanted to make you aware of some things.

no no offense at all. i bought the gun used and the prong on the grip safety looks like it's been chewed up, the hammer was aftermarket and there was "play" between it and the strut, also the hammer follow would only happen when dropping the slide on a full magazine. not when firing, and not when dropping the slide on an empty mag. the trigger i bought... well... cause it was stainless and would look nice with all the other stainless parts. and i bought the 2 springs cause they were really cheap and it can't hurt to replace them.

basically, all the mods were necessary cause the gun was seriously screwed internally by the guy who had it before me. it may seem like a waste of money but for me, if it's something that could potentially protect my life or that of my loved one. i'd prefer to spend the little extra cash on some top notch parts to have peace of mind that when i pull that trigger, it will go bang.

Juris, I'd say you're on the right track. I should not have been so presumptuous.

Man, that grip safety looks really weird.

Good luck and let us know how it all turns out.

I'm having a similar project done to my 1991 .45 colt. Functioned flawlessly before. I simply don't like the full sized hammer, short grip safety(web of hand killer!) etc. A gun smith is doing mine, and is also going to do so that if it's ever sold, the new buyer wants to put it back to stock, He or She can do so.
