The trigger can be replaced.
Cost is minimal if it gives you "peace of mind".

If you are mechanically inclined, you could do it yourself. Just remember that when removing material, you will have a heck of a time adding it back, if needed.

(and keep the Dremel away)

Yes you can replace the trigger but 1 they need to be fitted and 2 the 1911 has 30 moving parts
Trigger jobs usually run about $50

I consider $50 to be minimal cost for "peace of mind".

(After paying $125 per magazine for a pistol no longer manufactured, $50 is cheap)

Before I call BS on your statement that every 1911 trigger "...should have no vertical play..." do you really mean NO vertical play?

Because I have shot a boat load of 1911's in my life time and not that I've checked each one, but some form of play has been present. And I have not experienced trigger bind.

Sooo anyway...if you don't already know how to completely strip your 1911. You can go on YouTube and find a video. Replacing the trigger is easy.
