2020 Editor’s Choice Award – Nighthawk Drop-in 1911 Trigger

Nighthawk Drop-in 1911 Trigger

A common improvement sought by in a 1911 pistol is a high-quality, gunsmith trigger job, with a crisp, clean break. Exit gunsmith. With Nighthawk Custom’s new Drop-In Trigger System (DTS) for 1911s, sending your pistol off to a gunsmith, waiting months and incurring a bill that’s most definitely more-costly than the DTS are all a things of the past. An all-in-one unit, it replaces your existing hammer, hammer strut, sear, disconnector, and sear spring. Your existing sear pin and hammer pin will be retained. It features a steel housing and fully machined, stainless steel internal components. The traditional three-pronged sear spring is gone as the springs for the disconnector and sear are built into the unit. A single-leg grip safety spring replaces the existing sear spring. Installation is simple enough that with minor gunsmithing skills, the DTS will give your current 1911 a high-quality trigger job in about 15 minutes. Available with stainless or black nitride hammer, it’s priced at $299.99. We thank Nighthawk for the continuing innovation of the 1911 platform … this one earns them a 2020 Editors’ Choice Award.
