So I just got a CZ SP01 custom and shooting SA it breaks at around 2lbs.
So my problem is my Springfield Mil-Spec is my favorite pistol I own(but that darn CZ is catching up quick-due to such a smooth trigger pull), question is there a drop-in kit that can cure my ailments. I would like to keep from spending too much also, Please tell me that there is something I can do to solve this. Also neither are carried so no worries there.

Thanks for any help,

Any competent gunsmith should be able to do a nice trigger job on a 1911.

There are some kits that should get you down around 2# that are SUPOSED to be drop-in kits, but, sometimes do require some fitting because, believe it, or not, all pistol frames are not perfectly square, or have the holes exactly the same.

One kit that comes to mind is the Extreme Engineering.

Brazo's kit is the best I've found. You will need to fit your thumb safety to the sear.

I've heard the kits by EE are as good as they get and are in fact the same as the Cylinder and Slide kits.

A Cylinder & Slide Sear Spring 1911 worked for me and was a cheap fix.
You can additionally stone [flat] the trigger bow and disconnector to remove any rough spots. Working on a 1911 is a piece of cake if you have any mechanical ability.

There are good drop in kits that will cut down the trigger pull of your Springfield. That said, nothing drop in will give you a 2# pull. A lot of good gunsmiths can make that happen, but a drop in kit that is truly safe is limited to about 3.5 or 4 pounds.
