Default stupid question

Can a standard "long" trigger work in a series 80 style( remington) pistol, or will I need to find a series 80 specific trigger?

The trigger does not matter unless you are talking about a Gold Cup.
Those are wider in the pad area.

Here's my R1 with a "long trigger".

Best thing I've done to the Remington!

Arched MSH - wasn't that the A1 in the 1911A1 ?

Will it require "fitting" or drop in ? My gunsmith used to laugh when he heard some modification required.

It depends. With the msh it should be drop in but it may not be flush all around.

Well, the trigger will need to be changed, also mounted pachmyer grips up today, and I put 150 rounds through yesterday. One failure to feed, technically a three point stoppage but that was 20 rounds in. I was consistantly low left, so I have an excuse to go shooting next saturday and work on trigger control. If I can't get the groups to center, i'll do a trigger swap.
Also really dig the safety, was going to swap my ria to an extended safety, but I've changed my mind, I'll just use a WW1 Style safety.
