I've done that in the past, Deputy. I had a couple people tell me that it may give me light primer hits. I don't know, because I didn't shoot it. I just tried while dry firing. I put the spring back on before I went to the range. I've also heard about pressure on the hammer while pulling the trigger. I think this smooths out metal on metal contact points. The 45 I just got actually has a pretty smooth trigger pull. I know that a gun smith changed the grip frame and I'm not sure what else was done to it, if anything.
