Roll Trigger Options for 1911

Post by SonOfSwede on 12/1/2017, 8:40 am

I am aware of the roll trigger kits from KC's Kustom.  Are their any other options for 1911's that I should consider to try a roll trigger.

One thing to consider with KC's kits is that they are a drop in. If you find you don't like it you put the old gear back in. You might even be able to re-sell the kit should that be the case. I put them in three guns and so far I like the results.

I believe John Harrison also sells roll trigger sets. He sells the TR sear.jig.

I have a Cylinder and Slide USMC trigger kit. It has a nice long roll, but it needed stoning to give me the feel I wanted.

I had this setup prior to KC creating his kits. I would probably buy KC's setup if I had it to do over again.

Have you noticed any differences between KC's kit and this USMC kit?

They are nothing alike. KC's kit is 100% unique. The Cylinder and slide kit is more similar to other off the shelf products. This kit of theirs just has longer hammer hooks than most.

Hmm, I recently bought this Cylinder and Slide Ultra Match kit: https://cylinder-slide.com/Item/cs0226

This thread makes me wonder about that decision.  I guess time will tell, and I have a Power Custom stoning jig.

Greetings I am new to bullseye and after chatting with KC about his checking out my Colt Combat government 1911 decided to not upgrade it. So  I opted for a Springfield RO which I searched for on Ammoseek.com. Found a good price $739 and its on the way to me. Will send this to KC for a checkup, new bushing, Ultra dot rail, and a roll trigger. Now I am concerned I may be jumping the gun ;-) with the roll trigger after reading about the hole locations.

If K.C. is going to install the roll trigger no worries

If KC is fitting the trigger there will be NO issue.  I have 5 of KC's roll triggers, 3 were kits which I installed and they are awesome, 2 were installed by KC (guns he built for me) and those triggers are awesome +++.  I would have zero concern.

Personally I would have a bullseye smith do a trigger job, a good bullseye smith can work wonders. If you want a KC roll trigger that's fine but I would have him install it and tune it. All my triggers currently are by Jon Eulette or Doug Hall and are mostly short roll, one is approaching medium. 

Another thing is knowing what kind of trigger you like and shoot well. When you're new its not always obvious, I'm still learning which is best for me. A lot of people start thinking its HAS to be a crisp trigger, I used to be like that. Now I would suggest a nice short roll for someone learning, I think a full crisp trigger is less forgiving.

The more I shoot my roll triggers the more I like them. Once you learn to really feel the roll, you will never go back in my opinion.
