    I've been mulling this over for some time and realized I was just wasting time because I was gonna do it regardless. :p

    So there's another SA 1911 on the way.

    More info and pictures later after it arrives.

    Got confirmation that it will be shipped via UPS 2nd Day Air. It hasn't left GrabAGun yet so I probably won't see it until early next week.

    It looks pretty similar to a TRP from not mistaken but it's a beautiful gun what does something like that run you if you don't mind me asking

    That's a beauty SA, congrats. After you get some range time on it I would appreciate you're evaluation of the trigger. I recently got a TRP and to be honest the trigger has some creepy spots that I was hoping would have worked out by now but they persist. Well over 1k rounds at this point.

    I can do that, Steve. I plan on putting the first 50 or 100 through it this weekend. We'll see how the trigger feels.

    Steve I find many of the 1911 Springfield that I have handled had a smidgen of creep. The best thing to do is tear it down and work on your sear and check your hammer hooks and their engagement or send it to Springfield but I did mine spent 275 and get all of the creep eliminated and a brand new trigger job

    nola,

    That is the reason I was asking, my TRP trigger was horrible from the factory. After spending some time with the hammer and sear on the side of the frame to look at the engagement I had to change the sear angle just a tad to eliminate the creep. The hammer hooks also needed a little stoning to smooth things up but the sear required the most work. I was able to obtain a very crisp 3 1/2 pound trigger with no issues, I am planning on bumping the trigger to as close to 4 Lb as I can get it. I guess with MIM parts that is what you get.

    Very true. Honestly after being without my Long Beach for 3 weeks now I kind of regret it. I could have lived with the little bit of creep that it did have. However now I think I'm going to be really satisfied because there's nothing I can do to get it back sooner. But if you can do without it just let them fool with it. I did a little bit of stoning myself but without a jig I ended up taking it down to a point that wasn't safe
