Looking for the best Crisp break on a 1911

Post by DavidR on Mon Jun 29, 2015 1:05 pm

Ok, after several terrible matches im officially over trying to shoot a roll trigger!  Im going back to my roots and where I do my best and that is with a nice crisp break and need advise on getting the best I can get. I have the TR jig and it does great roll trigger jobs but Can it be used to get a nice clean crisp break? If so what is the best way. If not then some guidance on what will work would be gratefully appreciated.

David, you can use the TR jig to get a very nice crisp trigger.  Just flip the sear as the instructions show and make a "secondary" cut on the sear.  Shortening the primary surface will start making the trigger feel crisp.  Just keep going until you get the desired feel of your release.  I would recommend keeping a very small radius from the primary to the secondary just to keep the trigger job lasting longer.

If you have any questions please give me a call, I'd be more than glad to help.

Hi KC,

Would the TR jig allow for a greater roll trigger?  One year at Camp Perry, I dry fired a pistol done by Joe Chambers which felt excellent.  It was a longer roll than the standard set up with the TR sear.

Norman, every gun is going to be a little bit different.  But if you were using a TR sear that had not been touched, it would depend on the hammer hooks.  Come on by next week if you're going to be at Perry and I'll show you what I'm doing with my "new" parts.

Thanks KC, I appreciate your kindness and consideration.  Unfortunately, no Camp Perry this year due to a number of circumstances.
