I have a well-used AMT Hardballer, 5", that some previous owner buffed the grooves off the hammer and trigger. Now, it is very annoying to shoot.

It's not the last version; it has the 1911 grip safety (no ducktail), but does have the extended slide stop and thumb safety. The AMT skeletonized trigger is non-standard (.330" wide) where a Colt Gold Cup skeletonized trigger is .350" and a 'standard' 1911 is .250".

That owner also buffed the grip safety, making it a slippery shooter. I'd like to get an original SS hammer and trigger.

Anyone know of a source???

Thank You!  Smile

If you want original parts, check both GB and Ebay. Theres a guy on GB that seems to ONLY sell parts kits for various guns w/o the frames.
If you change your mind, you can always call Brownell's and other parts houses. If they dont have the right size, you might try calling well known custom shops. I've used Tussey Custom before, and Gary Reeder(yes, they do 1911s, too), Wilson Combat, etc. If they dont have the right trigger, they might be able to make it.
You likely already thought of all this. Anyway, good hunting!

You could try bead blasting or sandblasting the grip safety to give it's texture back. You could do the face of the trigger too, at least as a temporary fix. Someone used to make one for the AMT. Try going directly to the webpage( like Wilson Combat) and looking at the options, you might find a trigger. Try Dlask Arms too, I always liked their triggers.

Good Luck

Oh yeah,

just bead blast or sandblast the faces you need rough, you don't want the trigger bows or the internal part of the safety rough. Tape up good what you don't want blasted and go gentle.
