Ok guys , Iíve been tinkering with guns ever since Iíve been collecting (20 years or so) so Iíd say Iím an amateur to mediocre gunsmith , and I do have the proper tools , punch and screwdriver sets . Ok so I ordered a Wilson combat trigger for my rock island cs officers model , gun came apart free of issue , trigger even dropped right in ! No burrs or super tight fit or anything , mags insert and drop free smooth as butter , put gun back together , no pinching no grinding nothing everything seems to operate smoothly BUT when I pull the trigger and leave the grip safety alone the hammer still engages and Iíve torn the gun down 5 times , at one point when I release the slide the hammer would drop as well but the last I put it back together , that stopped , so anyway Iím thinking I may need a new sear spring and beaver tail safety (which Iím considering replacing with Wilson combat components anyway) and Iím pretty sure sear and disconnect are installed properly so I do not think that is my problem , what say you aficionados ? Thanks for any help !

Iím not a ďgunsmithĒ but the spring if you look at it has a way to seat properly if you get on YouTube it will tell you how to fix it without carrying it to the shop itís actually pretty easy and quick to do

1911 shop manual, swapping parts can become a big problem as everything cascades. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B-FmHQLYBbIWWFFXdmNsWDlPMHc/edit

Make sure there is enough tension on the sear spring. You can bend it in a bit to increase tension. Does the grip safety spring back when not held down?

If you push the grip safety up and out above the pin by the hammer will it fire?

Are the 3 fingers outside of the sear & disconnect when assembled?

Ok conclusion : I ordered a Wilson Combat sear spring and had to add a little more tension on the grip safety leaf , she works like a charm !
