Kits for a good trigger job?
I'm sure this has been brought up on numerous occasions but I'm looking for a budget kit. My G.I. has a Wilson match trigger that greatly reduces muzzle yaw but the trigger pull is a little too high for me. Anyone have a tried & true suggestion?

PM StalkingBear or just wait and he'll answer here. He is the "trigger expert" in my opinion.

Take a look at World's Largest Supplier of Gun Parts, Gunsmith Tools & Shooting Accessories - Brownells
I normally buy parts from them, and they do have kits from different manufacturers of decent quality.

There are several parts that make up a good trigger pull on a 1911. Mess one up, and you could have a surprise when shooting.

In other words, be careful.

Check out the kit that Canebrake posted. It's got everything you need to have a good trigger. I DO NOT recommend you try to stone your existing hammer/sear-it's NOT a job for an amateur. It's entirely too easy to stone too much or change the angle even if you have a jig or bench block.
