Discussion in 'Handguns: Autoloaders' started by The Dutchman, Aug 3, 2005.
P.S Is it true that it effects the trigger crispness of the design?
No it doesnt effect the crispness of trigger only reason i replaced mine was i wanted magwells and my 2 loaded models didnt have them
well, that settles it, when i buy my 1911, it will be a Thompson Auto-Ordnance.
I replaced the following on my TRP:
MS housing cap
MS Housing cap retaining pin (Note: not used on ILS MS housing)
MS (stock 1911 is 23#; I went 20#) The ILS MS is 28# and I noticed a major trigger improvement by removing 8# of MS pressure.
Easy fix and less than 5 minutes work.
Series 70 does not mean "original design" or "without firing pin safety or key lock." It is a Colt trademark for the Government Model mutated with a collet type barrel bushing without Mr Browning's knowledge or input (since he had died 44 years before that model came out.)
I don't like superfluous action parts like firing pin blocks or key locks but anybody who wants a real JMB/Colt 1911 with hand-biting hammer/grip safety and teeny sights is welcome to it.
The Old Fuff will be second in line ...
