Default Remington 1911

Any body have any good ideas to upgrade the Remington 1911. It's my first 1911 and has taken the spot of "my baby" in the safe. I would like a new trigger for a smoother break. Any other ideas out there?

Are all of these parts Wilson combat and fairly easy to install? I have always been that guy who can make it from scratch but not fix it.
