  1. 1911 front sight staking?

    Gunsmithing

    Picked up my new Springfield Armory 1911 A1 Loaded tuesday and love the way it feels. The trigger has some creep in it, and has an adjustment screw on the bottom, can you use that to take a little of that out? or is just for disassembly? there was nothing in the manual about it.
