Default German Sport Guns 1911 - 22

Does anyone know what the small grub screw in the leading edge of the trigger is for on the GSG 1911-22?

It is used to adjust the trigger. If you like the trigger pull as it is, do not mess with it.

It does not effect the amount of pull, just the length of the trigger. Some folks like long triggers on 1911's, some like a shorter trigger.

I left the trigger on mine just like it came out of the box.

It's used to adjust over-travel. If your gun is running.....DON'T TOUCH IT!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!
