I've never shot one, but was curious what the factory trigger pull weight is ?   Are these triggers proprietary, or can you drop in an AR trigger?

It's an M14 trigger. It can be modified but doesn't need to be. I can't remember the weight, it's a lot nicer than the standard AR type trigger though.

I assume it's single stage?

Early SOCOMs had USGI trigger packs in them.

Aren't you the one who chimes in in every 1911 thread like you're a firearms expert?

6lb 2 stage. Great factory trigger. GI triggers are around 4.5lb.

Are you talking to me?  No, clearly you have me confused with someone else....though I did just change my avatar with the site upgrade.


ETA:  I rarely post in ANY 1911 thread, let alone all of them.  WTF

I like the trigger. My brother in law and I took my new Socom 16 and my BCM AR build out last week. The AR has a Geiselle 2 stage trigger. We both thought the Socom was way more fun to shoot.

Mil-Spec on an M14 trigger is between 5.5# and 7.5#. 4.5# is typically the minimum for a match trigger as it's the listed minimum for High Power Service Rifle.

Reference: MIL-R-45012-E

I apologize, then.

Somebody clue me in. Who's the guy who shits on 1911s every chance he gets.

^All of the above.

It's as good as any service rifle trigger, and fine for what the SOCOM16 is.

A giesele SAA will drop right in.

You just have to dremel the trigger mounting block.

It only takes a few minutes to really smooth it up with the Dremel and a grinding wheel.

Shit man ... may as well just polish the feed ramp and breech face too....

No worries.   For the record, I love my 1911's...but only got into the platform in 2014 when CA still had it's single shot exemption law in place.  Picked up a Les Baer Concept V 6", and the SIG Super Target Stainless with the scandic birch grips (ETA: a love-or-hate pistol...it's PIMP as shit! ) ...both of which I've barely had time to break in since I typically shoot a SIG p226 X-Six SAO for competition.   I like the heavy steel...
