...that I bought for my Kimber Super Carry Pro. Now I have swapped out 1911 triggers many times...no issues. But the rounded mainspring housing has me wondering...

Anybody ever took one of these things off and re-installed it? The tabs on the mainspring housing that fit into slots on the frame are, by necessity, on the rounded portion of the butt/housing, and at an angle, not dropping straight down like on a standard 1911. Looks like you might have to push the housing in at a slight angle then maneuver tabs into the slots.

Am I over thinking this (something I am not usually accused of)? :bigidea:

The rails are straight, right? And the grooves are straight, right? Line them up and push it in, keeping the rails oriented with the grooves.

Me too, but, nonetheless I've had a lot of fun with it.

Okay, okay guys...I got it...sort of. :D (that's for you, Charlie. ;))

Tim, I thought I was over-thinking it. Thanks.

Walt, it's like the old saying goes...When they point, giggle and ask "Who are you going to please with that?", I say me. :smile:

Well, I put the short trigger in my Kimber this morning. No problems. The mainspring housing comes straight out just like a standard 1911.

Now the ambi safety was a little challenging, but got it off and on, and everything is working.

Thanks, gentlemen.
