    1911 gold cup national match government 70s.

    What’s the trigger weight on the 1911s? Specially the government 70 series? Are there a standard?

    I assume you mean the new ones which were introduced in 2015. I have two. A 45ACP made in 2015 and a 9mm made in 2017 (bottom).



    Both have very nice triggers which break at a little over 4lbs (4lb 4oz for the 45). Now if one bought 10 of them made in the same time frame it would be interesting if the triggers would all be the same. Also, as a point of interest, none of the current Gold Cup series has the Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety.

    Another point of interest is I do have a 2015 GCT which also has a lovely trigger and the Colt Series 80 mechanical firing pin safety that breaks a little higher at a little over 5lb. On the GCT I have replaced the rubber wrap around grips with some wood stocks from Altamont by the way.



    The interesting thing is shooting these two next to each other the same way on the same day with the same ammo at the same distance (15 to 50 yards) I get the same size groups.

    I use a Lyman electronic trigger pull gauge by the way and take an average of 10 pulls after I have run a couple hundred rounds through the pistol.

    There are going to be variances in every manufactured product, and gold cups are no exception. An expectation of 4-6 pound range is realistic
