I own a Norinco 1911-A1. if it is relevant to a decision on which parts to use.

Do you reccomend Chip McCormick or Wilson Combat parts for optimizing.

Points of Interest hammer and a lighter trigger.

Anything you feel is relevant please share.

Wilson Combat. Regarding triggers, I've used all kinds. It just comes down to looks for me, as they are both good quality. As far as hammers, you get what you pay for. If you go Wilson value line or McCormick, they are both junk. Get a Wilson barstock hammer. Of course, I suppose it's a moot point if you simply intend to drop them in and not do a proper trigger job. In that case, the MIM hammers from either are suitable.

If you are putting it in yourself and aren't familiar with fitting, I would go with the Cylinder and Slide Shops drop in trigger which includes hammer, sear, disconector, sear spring and main spring.

Listen to Hobbs5624, he knows his stuff.



Does that mean the rest of us dont, or should refrain from posting since Hobbs has already spoken?

Cool SGB, 10,000th post! Trust me Mattl, he was just being nice to me, and he's pretty much nice to everyone. I'm sure your advice is definitely appreciated, and you're 100% right on the money.

C&S has some awesome stuff, and their full kits are a steal considering it's an instant drop in trigger job without paying for a gunsmith. There are a few minor details of a trigger job that will not be addressed by the drop in parts, but they are so minor that many smiths don't even address them. BTW, nice touch with the AH link too.
