Black Trigger on SR1911

Been wanting to replace the stock trigger on my SR1911 Govt with a black trigger, just 'cause I thought it would match the dark slide release, safeties, and MSH as well.
I finally got around to doing this and I like the results.

I installed a long black match trigger from Thunder Mountain Customs (down the road aways in Sierra Vista, AZ).
It took some fitting but I like the results.



The stock trigger was ok but had a little up-and-down sloppiness.
This trigger, after some fitting, has no up-and-down movement.
It has minimal pre-travel and overtravel now, and it feels great!
I function checked it but won't be to the range for a while.
The only downside is I think the serrations on the face of the trigger seem a little sharp, I may have to sand them down a little but I'll wait until after the range trip to decide.

Nice compliment to the look. Have you thought about black grips?

Thanks!
I've thought about black or some black/grey combo but haven't changed the grips out yet. I like the Ruger grips on it.
