While out at SHOT Show 2020, I can say that this was truly a year of innovation. It may not have seemed like it to some, but there were some truly innovative products there this year, if you knew where to look.
One of our favorites is something that, to our knowledge, has never before been done. This groundbreaking thing is a drop in 1911 trigger chassis from Nighthawk.
This drop in 1911 trigger is exactly what it sounds like, but doesn’t actually replace your trigger. Instead, it replaces the components that change the way it handles like the sear, the disconnect, the hammer, and the leaf spring. It changes the way the trigger feels when it breaks.
It’s essentially like putting in a 4.5 pound match trigger in your 1911. As far as Nighthawk told us, it’ll work with any 1911 trigger, regardless of if it’s a series 70 or 80, and after feeling this drop in trigger in a 1911 they had on hand, I can say that it felt fantastic.
We watched the process taking place, and it looks like someone who isn’t a gunsmith, like myself, can still do in the comfort of their own home.
We got back to the Air BNB last night and Joe bought one. This means that you can expect a review on this drop in 1911 trigger at some point in the very near future, as well as a trigger install video.
You can watch our coverage of this innovation while at SHOT Show, in this video:
This trigger has an MSRP of $299.99, and you can find them on the Brownells website.
Stay tuned for more on this in the very near future as we do an install video and a review on the product itself. Are you as excited for this as we are? Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
