View Full Version : Fun with the Trigger guage - Beretta trigger pull weights

I've wanted to get a trigger guage for years now. I finally went ahead and ordered one about a week ago, and it came today.

Here are the pulls for my two 1911s... I once sent my Ed Brown back to get re-bead blasted, and the gun came back with a slightly lighter trigger. It feels just a touch too light for a carry gun. The trigger on my Custom Springer feels just about perfect.

So, one of these days I'll have them alter the trigger on the Special Forces - or if I ever order another Ed Brown, I guess I'll ask them to make the trigger around 4lb 5oz to 4lb 8oz (4.5 lbs)


(10 pulls for each trigger, and then the avg)

Ed Brown 5" Special Forces 1911 45ACP (687 Rounds thru gun): 3lb 10.3oz; 3lb 10.2oz; 3lb 14.1oz; 3lb 15.8oz; 3lb 13.4oz; 3lb 10.9oz; 3lb 11.0oz; 3lb 12.2oz; 3lb 14.1oz - AVG 3lb 12.6oz

Springfield Custom Shop 9mm Full Rail Operator (1175 Rounds thru gun): 4lb 8.3oz; 4lb 4.5oz; 4lb 6.1oz; 4lb 2.2oz; 4lb 1.2oz; 4lb 8.2oz; 4lb 3.5oz; 4lb 6.7oz; 4lb 7.1oz; 4lb 8.9oz - AVG 4lb 5.6oz

What model do you have again? I forget...

To me, the weight is just a LITTLE too light for carry.

you can adjust the pull weight easily using the sear spring. Sounds like it would not take much.

Bend the center disconnector toward the trigger bow very slightly till you get what you want.

As it is such an expensive gun, I'll likely let someone who knows what they are doing mess with it. But thanks for the info.

Brown already told me they would adjust it for free - as I may send it in to be refinished in Gen 3 - I just haven't decided yet
