I just discovered another non-GI part that is apparently unique to the current production Gold Cups.  It seems that the width of the trigger is not consistent with most other 1911's?  After fitting a Cylinder and Slide short trigger so I can see if this length is better for me, I noticed the gaping spaces on both sides between trigger and frame.
That was a thirty dollar lesson.  The one previous was concerning the non-standard front dovetail; that cost me fifteen dollars.
Does anyone want this trigger for say fifteen bucks shipped to your door?  It is C&S part number CS0194SR.  After fitting the height is now .903" just so you know what you're getting. Not likely but if you have a wide (apparently for Gold Cups only) and either short or medium to trade, all the better.

It looks like there is an option for someone looking to put a shorter trigger in; EGW makes a long wide trigger but it appears to have plenty of meat and is solid so I can mill a new radius in the front at whatever shortened length I want to try.  I should ask them at what point I am going to hit something.  I'm not sure how they're made.  There goes another thirty sheckles. Very Happy

Greetings,

Videki used to make an Aluminum trigger for the Gold Cup.

I was able to shorten it to suit my wife's hand.

No longer made; but, eBay might be a source.

Cheers,

Dave

Froneck (on this forum) makes a new short wide trigger with his shoe attached permanently for the GC.
