Default Shield 1.0 vs. 2.0 trigger

Is the Shield 2.0 trigger better than the 1.0? For those that have shot both pistols, what was your impression? If better, why? If not, why not?

I will answer from my experience...

I bought my Shield when they first came out. I got jacked on the price and when it arrived....I ended up with a 9-10 lbs trigger press. It was horrible.

I spent the extra coin on an Apex Duty kit and I have a very clean breaking 6 lbs trigger that I like.

At the dept when I work, I have to inspect personal firearms for duty carry. Alot of Shields come across my desk. While I think the 2.0 is ok, it does not match the clean break of my Apex duty trigger on my 1.0. I have not pressed a factory trigger on a Shield (1.0 or 2.0) better than the Apex duty on my 1.0.

For a short time period...I owned another 1.0 Shield (bought NIB) and the trigger was rough through its press. It was definitely a candidate for a Apex. A co-worker talked me into selling it to him and I used the money toward another 1911.

hope this helps

I have the 1.0. An armorer and firearms instructor actually worked on my factory trigger and I'm very satisfied with it. I don't know what poundage it is but it has little take up, crisp break and noticable, short reset.

But to answer the OP's question, yes, the 2.0 trigger is better out of the box. There is a little pre-travel, the 2.0 lacks the 1.0 grit and has a much cleaner break and reset. The trigger alone is worth the investment.

I can only tell the difference between the two when dry firing and thinking about how they feel. At the range the difference is negligible. However, the grip texture is another story.
