There are a few things you can do:

For one, you can adjust the trigger stop screws to take some of the slack out of the trigger pull.

Second, you can install an aftermarket connector that will reduce the weight of the trigger pull.

Finally, you can tighten up the screws on the grip safety to make sure it’s properly engaging.

All of these solutions should help to reduce your trigger pull and make it more manageable.

There are a few things you can do to reduce the amount of force necessary to pull the trigger on a 1911:
1. Make sure that you’re using a gun with an appropriate trigger weight for your hand size and strength.
2. Ensure that the gun is properly fitted to you and that all of the screws are securely tightened.
3. Use a lighter recoil spring (14-16 lbs is generally recommended).
4. Use a reduced power hammer spring (20-22 lbs is generally recommended).
5. Use an adjusted firing pin block spring (adjust according to your ammunition type).

What can you do to reduce trigger pull on 1911?
1. You may want to try using a lighter recoil spring (if allowed by your state’s regulations) or adjusting the trigger stop screws until you find a setting that is comfortable for you. One is to make sure that all of the springs in your gun are in good condition and properly tensioned.
2. Next, you can also lighten the sear engagement surfaces on the hammer and trigger.
3. Also, practice regularly so that you become more accustomed to the weight and feel of the gun in your hands.
