My buddy and I were comparing the triggers on our 1911s. He has an 1970/80's Colt Gold Cup which is a Series 80. Mine is a 2013 Desert Eagle 1911 G which is a Series 70.
Both of our triggers have a pull of about 4.1 lbs. However his trigger has way more travel until firing than mine. On mine, just pressing the trigger a little and it goes boom. On my buddy's, it needs about 1/8" of travel before it goes.
Is this difference due to mine being a Series 70 vs. his being a Series 80?
