    Got a spur hammer I would like to trade out for a loop type. Long trigger, and I want a short one. How difficult is it to perform a trigger job on a 1911?

    Need better rear sights, front sight (probably get the slide cut for novak night sights).

    Grips need to go. Thinking a slim line elsmarelda, though if I can find some relatively inexepensive carbon fiber ones... I'll go with that.

    Midway, Brownell's, and CDNN. <-- All names are clickable links to their 1911 parts pages.

    Keep in mind that many 1911 parts such as the hammer must be carefully hand fit to each individual weapon, and usually don't just "drop in." Because of this, the parts are usually a bit oversized to allow for the hand fitting.

    f-111 I understand. I wasn't gong to be doing the work myself... My hands aren't steady enough for it.
