Well guys. I did it. Officially popped my cherry and got a 1911. I got to say. That gun feels great in hand. Only gripe is the wobbly trigger it has. Is there anything I can do to fix this. It wobbles up and down and side to side alot. Feels sloppy. Is that normal or do I need to bring it to a gunsmith?

Doesn't sound like anything normal to me. Gunsmith time.

sometimes a trigger can come out of spec, if you know 1911s really well you can replace the trigger. if not i would either send it back to the manufacturer or take it to your local gunsmith. who is the manufacturer

I'm shocked, everyone even old school pro's praise that gun, something is wrong.

That's what I thought. It just feels like a trigger should not be that wobbly. I know nothing about 1911's though. I'm going to bring it in to a smith to check it out when I get a chance.

Is there a set screw? you could tighten it a few half turns and dry fire to check it, like a carburetor fuel mixture screw, ya know?

Be careful with setting the set screw. If it has the series 80 setup, you can cause more problems.
The adjustable trigger adjusts overtravel only.
The series 80 setup uses that overtravel to work the firing pin plunger.
Setting the set screw incorrectly can cause the plunger to get "nicks" from the firing pin and can create a "no-fire" situation when you need it most.
