An all-in-one unit, the Drop-In Trigger System (DTS) from Nighthawk Custom replaces your existing hammer, hammer strut, sear, disconnector, and sear spring. Your existing sear and hammer pins are used with the DTS, but no other parts are necessary for installation. With a steel housing securing the unit, the DTS features all fully-machined, stainless-steel internal components. The traditional three-pronged sear spring is no longer needed because the springs for the disconnector and sear are built into the unit. A single-leg grip safety spring is included with the DTS to replace the existing sear spring.
The Drop-In Trigger System is designed for use in most 1911 models. It works with 1911 models in Series 70, Series 80, and Swartz Style, as well as 2011 models.
Installation is easy and minimal tools are required. With a proper safety check and minor gunsmithing skills, Nighthawk Custom’s DTS can give your current 1911 a high-quality trigger job in the time it takes for a routine cleaning of your pistol. The Drop-In Trigger System is available with a stainless or black nitride hammer.
In most applications, the DTS provides a clean and crisp, 3.75- to 4-pound trigger pull. Trigger pull may vary slightly from pistol to pistol depending on a variety of factors. Nighthawk Custom recommends a 500-round break-in period for final results.
