1911 trigger pull

Post by Jwhelan939 on 8/16/2013, 2:40 pm

I know the rules state that the trigger pull has to be no less than 3.5 lbs (56oz). Is that a firm line? My trigger, on an official scale is 55.35 ounces. Would they fail that? I have been playing with the sear Spring to get it just right. This seems to be the closest I'm getting without going over. I'm new to bullseye. I originally had the trigger job set at 2.5lb, which is my preference. Oh well. Rules are rules. Any help would be much cheaper appreciated. Thanks!

Match director can bring out a trigger weight measuring device set at 3.5 lbs If the trigger goes click, then it's no good. At many tournaments, no one bothers to check so it's on the honor system...
Distinguished pistol matches, they do check.

Probably easiest to just set your trigger at ~ 3lbs 10 ozs, and then forget about it
