True 1911 Drop-in Trigger

Hmmmmm? Thoughts?

Nighthawk is well known and a leader in 1911's.

I'm not a 1911 guy, so I can be of no help. It sure is pretty though.

Yeah, saw that. Cool but crazy expensive. My Kimber trigger is pretty good and I would be hard pressed to justify this. (And this from a guy with 4-5 Geissele triggers, but all bought on sale.)

Hmmm. Interesting. I’d have to chuckle at some 1911 purists for putting stamped parts into one of “John Moses Browning, Gods own gunmaker’s,” “perfect” 1911s.

I have a Springfield Range Officer Champion in 9mm. The trigger is almost half the price off the firearm. But, doesn't mean I'm not thinking about it. 😁

I am somewhat of a purist on 1911's. Yet some might want to give it a try for simplicity sake. Most 1911 platforms, have in the range of 4# triggers now. Even the lower end manufacturers. I have 2 factory SA TRP's and both are less the 4#s. Some of my newer Colt's are right at 5#s. The older Colt's I have are all 4#s or less (mostly less). Probably the cost of the Nighthawk trigger will detour some. I just purchased a new Wylie Clapp CCO and it is just under 4#s. A interesting concept and design non the less.

You first!

Seriously, I'd like to hear a trusted review before seriously considering it.

Soon as you send me that trigger I’ll review it. I’ll even try it in several different pistols. =))

I watched a youtube video of the install on a RIA 1911. Stock it was about the same as the new install. 4 .lbs and some change. I can not remember the link, do a search and it is out there.

I've done a lot of 1911 trigger jobs. Labor and parts (if needed) would run around half of what they're asking. I'd say it's a good mousetrap, but maybe not a better one. Just my thoughts.
