I just picked up my NIB Series 80 yesterday and it has the most horrendous trigger pull I've ever felt on any pistol except for an old Chinese Tokarov I used to have. It feels like there's sand in the mechanism. I didn't pull it all the way apart, but I did put some grease on the sear engagement area of the hammer. It helped a little, but I'm wondering if anyone else has had this experience, and if so, what turned out to be the problem?

First, thoroughly clean and lubricate the pistol, you might find all manner of dirt and metal shavings in there. If that does not cure the problem, a trip to Colt or a gunsmith who really understands the 1911 might be in order.

Most likely you have some rough finished parts in the weapon to begin with. The 3 prong spring is probably adjusted to give it a horrendous trigger pull, the hammer/sear engagement is probably oversized, and the firing pin safety parts are rough finished.
Depending on your familiarity with the 1911 takedown, will determine exactly how far you want to go with correcting it. If you are not too familiar a good pistolsmith can show you how to disassemble your weapon and maintain the components.
