    Default Any Colt 1911 Gold Cup National Match Series 70 shooters here?

    I've purchased a 1978 vintage example and have some questions about it.

    Mainly what factory trigger pull it is supposed to have and a grip safety tension question. Maybe others.

    Pics if you want to see it.

    I have a Service Manual that may have that info in it. Might take me a minute to find it. It is packed ready to move into the Barn.

    it looks like 3.5-4# and the closer to 4 you minimize sear bounce releases ...looks like 5# on un-tuned then a 45 degree sear escape angle will reduce it to 4# with std springs.
    Std main springs are .036-.0375 thick and reduced power are .034-.035 thick.

    it doesn't give a weight for grip safety...just function check and how to adjust or peen to lengthen. If it has been altered, it may not require the safety to be depressed all the way, therefor lengthen it. Even with the variances in frames and trigger bows most unaltered safeties are OK.

    Hope that helps.

    Excellent! That's what I was needing to know. Jerry Kuhnhausen's books are great.
