Trigger Pull 1911R1 versus 1911R1S

1911R1 Black Oxide after over 1000 rounds breaking in 4 lbs 11 oz on digital gauge avg over 10 pulls

1911R1 Stainless unfired YET out of box 3lbs 12 OZ

I am excited to get out and try it now. Lighter trigger intentional or just tolerance stack up of non fitted production parts?

I had my new R1S worked on by my gunsmith. It now has a 3.25# pull, no creep.

Years ago I handled a brand new Colt series 80 Government model that had a trigger that was so horrible, it put me off any gun that had that set up.

Fast forward to when Remington first started producing the R1, and it had a trigger that proved you could make a series 80 style gun with a decent trigger. The R1S I picked up a few years after the first, was equally as good.

With modern mass produced guns the trigger pull is just the result of tolerance stacking. None of the production gun makers "set" the trigger pull to a spec - it's just luck of the draw.

That’s something to keep in mind. ^^^
The modern production 1911 - high visibility sights, beavertail grip safety, aluminum trigger, good trigger pull, enhanced slide/ frame fit, accurized barrel/bushing fit. If itís not a Kimber, itís a copy.

Correct, they're not giving these custom trigger jobs by any means. My Recon R1 came from the factory with a 2.5lb trigger pull. In fact so did my Dad's.
