What Is A Good Sear?

Post by Tim:H11 on 3/4/2017, 10:13 pm

When buying a sear for a build, be it a 45 or 22, which brand or model of 1911 Sear do you buy and why?

When I did mine I bought an Ed Brown on the recommendation of a couple people on this forum and it worked perfectly, still had to fit it, but didn't have any problems with it

Warner True Radius sear from Harrison or in the trigger kit from KC.

Long hammer hooks and TR sear and you are in roll trigger country.

If you like a roll trigger, get one from KC Crawford.

Any 52-53 on the RC scale. You can make a true radius sear a crisp.

You can still use the TR sear for a crisp trigger as well Jason.  Small sear face and larger undercut or secondary just like a "standard" flat sear.

Cylinder and Slide has a nice crisp kit. I have one installed on a SA Trophy Match.

as far as sear parts go, I like STI sears and the E2 stuff...both are long and properly hardened.

+1 on KC's Triggers. Wish I would have not been afraid to switch from crisp to the roll and done so much sooner.

I put a KC Battle Axe in mt Ri that I am going to use for my Nelson.  I like the trigger but my next won't have the Battle Axe hammer it looks super cool but is hard on my thumb when doing a lot of dry fire and a little precarious when letting the hammer down.  for just shooting it is  fine.  Don

Don, when you're dry firing you should be cycling the slide to get the same trigger pull you're going to get when live firing.  If you're thumb cocking the hammer you're taking the disconnector out of the equation and getting a different trigger pull than you will when live firing the pistol.

Is this the case if you hold the trigger back while cocking?

Didn't know that and that solves the problem. Thanks,  Don

Dave, yes it is.  The disconnector is sitting in a different place than it would if the slide was cycled and the disco moved its normal range or travel.
