Today I took my Colt 1911 22 Gold Cup Trophy with me to the range along with my Volquartsen Black Mamba. I was shooting a Steel Challenge Match with the Mamba but wanted to test the GC to see if I did a good trigger job.
Things went pretty well but I still had hammer follow twice out of 7 magazines. I'm going in the right direction and should have the problem solved this week. It all has to do with the center leaf of the sear spring. I think I need a little more tension so I'm going to replace the Wilson Combat Spring with a Cylinder & Slide.
The C&S spring is a little stiffer and I know it works but trigger pull is heavier. Once I fire a few hundred rounds without a problem I'll try bending the sear spring's center leaf to get the disconnector to act faster.
This gun is a dream to shoot. It feels just like a 1911 but there is no recoil. It's very accurate and of all the rounds I shot I only had one miss shooting a couple of the Steel Challenge Stages.
Next month's club match will be abbreviated so I intend to shoot the 1911 22 and see what I can do with it.
