    I need some input from Wilson Combat Owner's. It's too late for me to change my order, but I was wondering how you like your 3.5# factory trigger on your Wilson Combat 1911.

    I'm sure they like them just fine. Quit rubbing your Wilson ownership in our faces! :club:

    Haha, didn't your mother teach you not to say anything if you didn't have anything nice to say!?!?

    I'm actually not getting a Wilson. Wilson is customizing my Colt series 80.
    Remove firing pin block
    Extended beavertail
    Commander hammer
    Gold bead combat sights
    new trigger set at 3.5#
    New sear
    Extended safety
    Black over gray finish
    Flared ejection port
    New slide stop
    New barrel bushing
    Tighten slide to frame

    I had them set the trigger the same as their production guns, which is 3.5#s. I should get her back in two months, hopefully ...

    Got very lucky finding this beauty in like-new condition for an exceptional price on this site a couple years ago...

    As for the trigger, it is truly amazing. Perfectly consistent with a perfectly crisp break. Assuming you like a single-action trigger, if the trigger on yours is anything like the trigger on mine, you should be a very happy camper. :)

    That sounds so sweeeeet! Respectfully, my question is why don't you just get a Wilson to begin with? :confused: Seems to me putting all that money that's going into your Colt will go a long way toward a new Wilson....

    I wanted something that was truly different than the rest to pass on to my kid/s. Mine says "COLT" on the side :cool:

    Makes sense. I have a few Colts too. There's something about that pony on the side. :thumbup:

    My only thought about the trigger was, 3.5#, man, that seems light! It's the standard weight of their production guns, so I decided to run with it.
