Welcome to the Forum. When you get a chance, stop by our "Introductions" area.
Now to the problem. I do not have much experience with Colts, but I would think that there would be a trigger return spring that needs cleaning or replacement.
Also, parts could be worn too far.
I would suggest that you allow a gunsmith to physically check it out.
