A Tale of Two .45's
« on: May 20, 2017, 08:39:42 PM »
I have the lucky opportunity to have two 97B's in my possession for a bit of time. 

They are nearly identical except for a difference in the triggers.  Each pistol has had the CGW's Pro Package installed by a different person.  However, there is a big difference between the distance the triggers set at.  When you pull back on the hammer's to where they lock for firing, both triggers move backwards.  However, one trigger moves backwards much farther than the other trigger.  When measured from the front of the trigger cage, one moves back 28mm while the other moves back 33mm.  There is a 5mm difference between where the trigger's stop and the amount of take up to be pulled before the triggers release the hammer. 

Any idea why there would be this difference? 

Here's a picture trying to show the difference.

Sounds like one of them has a fitted disco in it and the other is OEM or drop in.

The pic shows two triggers on top of each other with a 5mm spacing difference...posting pics to forums used to be very easy years back...

What is the difference between a fitted disco and a drop in one?

Mechanical difference, please.  So, one part has something that is 5mm shorter than the other part?

One disconnector is thicker than the other. That is the difference in the amount of pre-travel. The fitted disco comes extra thick so it can be reduced a few thousands at a time to almost remove all of the pre-travel and the trigger travels less forward in single action or stops just past the reset. Look at the 2 disco's below for the difference.

Either one of the packages came w/ the wrong disconnector or one disconnector didn't get installed...

With the measurements he is giving that would be my bet.

It makes perfect sense now after seeing the pics of the two discos.  Thank you for the links.
