Ok got an issue with my Girsan MC1911HC, I replaced the stock trigger, hammer and grip safety about a month or so ago and just finally got it to the range. Well after every shot i have to physically grab the trigger and pull it back out. No real force was required to do this and i havent taken it apart yet but i am fixing to do so and just wandered what you all thought might be the issue......... I did have to fit the trigger a little bit but it felt really smooth when dry firing it and had a nice crisp break and barely any over travel. Thoughts?????
new, I hope you'll have someone knowledgeable about 1911 work check out your modifications and fix what's wrong. I don't know quite how to put this, and mean no disrespect, but you should not be replacing critical fire control and safety parts without a thorough knowledge of what you'e doing. Every part you've mentioned normally needs fitting, and the required fitting is often not as obvious as having a trigger that won't physically fit without filing or stoning. There are many things that can go wrong with replacing the parts you indicated. I fully realize that the 1911 looks very simple, but with that there is considerable nuance in the platform, which is one reason gunsmiths get the big bucks... Best of luck with your project.
There are three fingers on the sear spring.
The port (left side) keeps pressure on the sear.
The middle (center) keeps pressure on the disconnector and the trigger.
The starboard (right) keeps pressure on the grip safety.
BillM could be correct with the trigger bow. Do mags drop freely? Are there rub marks on any mags from the trigger bow?

Dan thanks bro. You were correct, somehow i got confused on which leaf did what. But yeah the center leaf was a bit off looked like the whole spring was no set properly. But that center arm was the only one that didnt look right. I adjusted it and now works like a champ. Thanks for your input fellas, even the guy who said take it to someone knowledgable on 1911s. In my neck of the woods there isnt any good smiths but one and his shop in his house burnt down a few months ago. Besides i am confident with my knowledge and the knowledge and help i get from the wiser gentlemen here to do almost any repair to my gun. Thanks.
