Episode Info:   AudioPlayer.embed("audioplayer_11", {soundFile: ""});   1911 pistols in all their numerous variations are incredibly popular.  In this Episode Fred discusses a simple trigger job.  The techniques discussed are universal to all 1911 variations.  The Gold Cup and Series 80 type guns have a couple of extra parts, but the process of the trigger job is nearly identical, so Fred did not chase those details.  These minor variations only muddy the waters and our goal is to make this subject easily understood and duplicated. Trigger jobs on the 1911 can involve the installation of many custom parts, in short that would not change the basic method of doing a trigger job.  Probably because the 1911 has become so iconic with its 100 years of history, many new gunsmiths are sure that the 1911 is more complex than it really is.  Below you will find a large group of pictures that will help make the podcast more understandable. These photos were taken during the trigger job process and depict most every step that Fred talks about.  Download the high resolution photos (click here)
