Can somebody explain how the trigger travel including reset on a 2.5 Lb .38 wadcutter 1911 is soooo much shorter than the travel and reset on a 3.5 Lb .45 wadgun? The .38 trigger barely moves and resets immediately. Is it possible to get the trigger on the .45 to be as nice as the .38 at 3.5 lbs?

Trigger pull weight has nothing to do with the reset of the trigger. In other words long or short reset is not dependent on trigger pull weight. It's the relationship between the hammer and the Seer. Also the brand of the parts could make a difference. But a good gunsmith could set them both up to be equal.

Thank you Jon. That's good news. The "good" trigger is on a "61" Colt. The trigger itself seems to be a Clark with the overtravel set screw. The other trigger is on a Springfield with MIM parts so it all makes sense.
