    Can anyone tell me if the trigger or accuracy is different between the competition model and the hunter model. I know the barrels, sights, and grips are different but is the competition model any more accurate. By the name I would like it would be but that's just a guess. Anyone that would know I'd like your advise on these matters.

    Same pistol, different name.

    Replace the trigger with one from Power Custom or Volquartzen.

    If you replace the Mark lll hammer bushing with a Mark ll, remove the magazine safety and polish the hammer and sear a little you will have one of the best triggers. It even beats the Mark ll competition. I have the M.ll Comp. and the M.lll Hunter. I always thought I couldn't beat the trigger on my M.ll but after doing the above I did. The M.lll is now "THE BEST"!!!!

    Everything you need to make it into a full blown competition gun with a FANTASTIC trigger and it will eject magazines as it should! My trigger is right at 1 pound and has a minute amount of take-up, no creep, breaks like a glass rod and has no over-travel.

    That looks too good to shoot. Maybe I should buy the Stainless Bull Barrell, save the extra money and have this done since the trigger on the competition isn't anything special.

    I spent less than $10.00 on the hammer bushing from midwayusa and like I said it is a great trigger. The guy's from work that I did this for are extremely happy with theirs.

    Do the trigger 1st! It costs less than the barrel and will offer a greater improvement in performance. Those fancy barrels rarely tighten up groups a whole heck of a lot in comparison.
