Default Loose trigger on my SW1911

I just got me a new SW1911 and the trigger seems a little loose.

Any suggestions on how to fix it?

Sorry, need more information than loose.

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!

My Colt trigger has some play as well, side to side (I'd need to get a new trigger because I can't add material to the bow), a tiny bit up to bottom and front to back. It's possible to make the trigger a bit stiffer in overall (may slightly increase trigger pull) by playing with the sear spring, I haven't done it on my trigger but I have on my grip safety. I'll let the other experts chip in

By loose I mean it has vertical play. It moves up and down to the point that it jiggles.

Is it a replacement trigger?

No. It's the trigger that came from factory. It's brand new out of the box.

I did a quick search. Looks like a common issue with the s&w. Just replace it if it bothers you.

Most 1911 triggers have some freedom of movement in both the horizontal and vertical planes.

This movement should not be "...to the point that it jiggles."

Exactly WRONG
1911triggers should have no vertical play which causes trigger bind
