It may not be enough to notice but be aware when the bow gets wide it also gets shorter. Thats the trade off. You should also check for the rattle with a magazine in the pistol. It may not rattle as much with a magazine in the gun. You might find it doesn't rattle at all. Check to see.
    With mag it doesn’t rattle as much but it’s still there , it’s not that bad , just a rattle that I wasn’t used to on my other 1911s but I won’t mess with it cause it shoots accurate and no malfunctions. I was wondering if the rattle was normal

    Considering the original question and the apparent experience level implied; the trigger is located at the deep end of the pool. Perhaps the OP might try to locate some help with what might end up more involved than advertised.

    I go with this,it’s probably the trigger and the fix as described above. My GC rattled like a can of Krylon,removing the
    trigger and a little widening silenced it. Be careful you don’t go to far,also check that your magazine is not compromised
    in the fix. Pete
