I would disagree slightly with Tx in that not every 1911 needs to be tweaked. You get what you pay for. If you get a custom gun, it comes with a perfect trigger. I got a Kimber Custom II, and it needed a trigger job. I got a Raptor II from Kimber's Pro Shop and the trigger was damn near perfect, as was the rest of the gun.
None of my Nighthawk's needed trigger jobs - take that Cane! LOL
A trigger job is essentially taking up the "creep" on the front end of the trigger and takes out the over travel before it resets. A good "street trigger" or carry style trigger job should run less than $50. It's not hard and they should give you a 5 pull average with a trigger guage to make sure you are getting your monies worth.
I like mine around the 2# to 2.5# pull. Just enough to let you know you are consciously pulling the trigger, but not so long as to let the pistol wander off target from the shock of adrenaline that will dump into your system the minute you have to actually use the damn thing.
