So how hard would it be to install one myself?

I'm only a bit handy but would love to do this myself.

So what are the steps and is it reasonable to do it?

Thanks kindly, Brian

My advice, try a Wilson first. It's easier for first-timer.

No different than a standard 1911 trigger install really. That can mean a simple drop in to some fitting and adjusting required. Not hard really just go slow and take you time and you will be fine. Google it to find a video or written direction. :)

+1. I have both, and the Wilson is much easier to install. The 10-8's bow is slightly longer, and was having trouble it fitting in my SA Ultra Compact. But another 10-8 was fine in my SA Mil-Spec. So the tolerance might be off.

I have a Wilson in my DW CCO and it works great.

If you have a flat file, then you may need to shave a little bit off the shoe. If you do, use a black Sharpie marker to know where you're shaving off.

I have both 10-8 triggers and wilsons. I've installed both. Personally I didn't find one more difficult to install than another. I really like the 10-8, and it's what I'm getting more accustomed to. I think I may toss a couple in my wilson guns just because I like it so much more... :D

I fit a 10-8 short curved trigger aided by this site:

I checked the fit with the help of this thread:

In addition there's a plethora of technical knowledge online.

He almost convinced me to buy the 10-8 flat trigger too. Ha.

Your eighth post from that link was helpful, thanks.

Let him keep turning! There is logic behind them and It is all a matter of personal preference! He'd probably be freaking about a lot of shapes that the 1911 has taken over the years. The 1911 is by far the most customizable handgun there is, so you know there will be a flavor for everyone, even the pimps
