1911 Trigger Job

Perfecting a 1911 trigger is one of our specialties.  Before any work is done, the trigger group parts are inspected to ensure they are quality components.  The sear primary and secondary angles are cut to a precise angle and the surfaces are polished to a mirror shine.  Hammer hooks are squared, cut to a specific height dependent on the trigger pull desired, then polished to a mirror shine.  The disconnector mating surfaces are also trued and polished to a mirror shine, making this trigger job the best pull possible.  Price - $200

*Does not include replacing internal parts that do not meet Guardian Arsenal's specifications.

Trigger Components

1911 Components

Guardian Arsenal uses only the best components available.  Failures or malfunctions dues to poor component quality is unacceptable and because of this, we will not put them in a gun we service.  Ever.  Guardian Arsenal isn't your typical custom 1911 gunsmith, our standard is much higher, and you deserve it.

Trigger Pull

A light trigger pull doesn't make a truly superb trigger job.  Many gunsmiths will stone a few surfaces or all surfaces, but they fail to understand the intricacies of the 1911 trigger job.  In the end the product delivered by them is a mediocre at best, lightened trigger.  At Guardian Arsenal we dress all mating surfaces on the hammer, sear, and disconnector then polish them to a mirror shine.  The entire trigger pull travel will be the smoothest trigger pull ever felt.  In addition, we can tailor the pull type to your shooting style.  Want a crisp, short roll, or long roll trigger pull?  No problem, we have the knowledge and ability to make the trigger pull exactly how you want it.
