For most 1911 pistols, it's not a good idea to go below "about" 4 pounds.

When Todd Jarrett was shooting Para Ordnances, he had most of the work done by Dave Dawson. However, Jarrett did his own triggers. His preferred pull weight was 11 OUNCES!

I would not be comfortable with this but if you ever watched Todd dance and shoot at the same time, he can do it with amazing speed and accuracy with no NDs.

I have a 1991A1 done up by Ted Yost when he was the gun plumber at Gunsite.

I have never put a gauge on it, but I would guess the pull weight is 6 pounds. But when you get in a good trigger squeeze, it's like an icycle breaking is half. A target shooter I am not, but when playing at shooting iron gongs and B-27s and such, the trigger weight is not an impediment to a disciplined shooter if the trigger has a nice clean break.

This particular gun was set up to function well and reliably for someone taking a shooting course (like gunsite) and subsequently carrying as a defensive pistol. (glock NY-1 ahead of it's time?, I guess)
