    In addition to what can be learned here at 1911.org, I have found that the website " The Sight M1911-A1 " to be very helpful. If you click on the maintenance section, there are two great articles. The first is "1911 Reliability Secrets" by John Marshall and "Breaking in a New 1911 Pistol" by Syd. Also, I have found the shop manual "The Colt .45 Automatic" by Jerry Kuhnhausen to be very helpful. I think Hawkmoon is correct when he stated that your trigger may clean up after a 1,000 rounds or so, My trigger on my AO .45 PKZE was extremely tight until I shot a few hundred rounds thru it.

    If the disconnector is shifting during the trigger pull, one possible cause might be a sharp unfinished tip on the disconnector leaf on the sear spring.

    Many types of roughness on parts will smooth themselves out over time. We call this "breaking in". Some other types worsen over time. Parts need to have some minimum preparation to wear properly.

    I would check to see if the tip of the disconnector leaf has a proper chamfer on its tip, and that the disconnector ramp (spring contact surface) is undamaged.
