2 General 1911 questions

I finally got my first 1911(s) this year. Kimber 5" Raptor and Springfield Range Officer

1. Does the inset screw on the trigger adjust the play/travel?

2. After much internet/reading research, I couldn't tell if there is much advantage to a full guide rod or not. My Kimber has a full one and my Springfield doesn't. Is it really a big deal?

1) Leave the trigger screw alone. You could alot more harm than good by messing with it.

2) I have both FLGR and GI setups on my 1911's and can't tell any difference either way.

What damage could happen from tightening up the over travel screw?

Playing around with the over travel screw can cause auto burst fire. That's not a good thing.

It really isn't rocket science.
