Oh, don't I know it! It seems that the three of us and marlin can drive a thread off topic faster than seabiscuit on crystal meth.

But, took Canes advice and put a good 500 rnds through my Sig before I did anything. Decided I didn't love the trigger and swapped it out to a nighthawk custom match grade trigger and then decided to dress her up a little. $200 later, I got a pretty nice lookin 1911.
Did you install it or had it installed? How much was the trigger and how much or how difficult was it to install if you did it yourself? This is the only thing Im not a fan of on my platinum elite.

Hahahaha!

To the OP, enjoy the fine 1911 that you have. You have all the time in the world for tweaks and upgrades, put some rounds down range then decide what you want from there.

Triggers are pretty inexpensive for a 1911. Mine was $25. I had one of my gunsmith buddies walk me through it so i didn't mess it up. I wanted to know how to do it myself for the future. I could do it by myself next time I'm pretty sure. There's just a lot of parts on the series 80 1911's.

Thanks for the response. I guess I better take it to the experts then.
