Is it worth it to have a trigger reduced to a 3lb on a custom tactical.....................If so how much should I expect to pay????????????????/

Have you ever felt a true 3lb trigger? Very light.

We can't even know how proficient you are with handguns so I say stick with the 4 lb and just have a gunsmith crisp it up for you.

A crisp 4 lb trigger can fool most unexperienced folks to think it's lighter.

Sound advice. Crisp is everything. I'll take a crisp 6 lb. trigger over a sloppy 3 lb. one all day long. My personal opinion is that a carry 1911 should be 4.5 lbs. at least, but that comes from the perspective of pointing a gun at people during an adrenaline dump. 3lbs. is just great for a fun gun though.

Agreed....


A crisp 4.5-5 lbs break with a little take up and overtravel in my ,carry, 1911's trigger makes me really happy.

Why? My TLEII came from the factory with a very nice trigger. There was some creep and slight overtravel. I ended up stoning the contact points (just a couple of passes) and it has been fine ever since. Kimbers have great triggers out of the box and most will become even better after break-in shooting. If you really want a lighter trigger pull contact Kimber and see what they recommend.
