Gunblast.com has a poor boy trigger job. For some reason I can't pull it up. Basically you pull one leg of the trigger spring. I will lighten the pull quite a bit. You can also order a set of springs from Brownells.
If you are going to do a trigger job, do it the right way...
You can get lighter springs from Wolff or Brownells. Also get yourself a couple of small Arkansas stones for honing the trigger sear and hammer contact surfaces. Don't change any of the angles - just polish them to a mirror finish and make sure you remove any and all burrs...
The complete process will take a couple of hours but once it's done and done right, you will have a first class trigger job you can be proud of. My Rugers "break like glass" at 36 oz. and are smooth as silk....
This Ruger here has a 36 oz. trigger pull and I attribute a lot of it's accuracy potential to the trigger. It's "worse" load will consistantly shoot 6-shots inside a 3" circle at 100 yards with it's best load shooting just under 2"....
thanks I have already pulled one leg of the spring and it helped but I would like a little lighter
I found most of my problem The sear on the hammer was realy rough. So I honed smooth.
Now I don't know all the words that discribe the parts but the tolerances are different.
so I'm going to put it back to gether and see if I have a hare trigger. tray
assassin Thats a nice looking gun. Looks like it means business.
I put the gun back together and it is sure smooth. I need to go and try it out.
Is is there anything I should to know before I go and shoot it? THANKS TRAY
With the weapon unloaded ---->
Cock the hammer and try to pull/push the hammer closed/forward(do not pull the trigger). I use my thumb and exert quite a bit of pressure on it. Of course it should not "fire". If the hammer does fall you could have a problem(depending how you look at it).
I also use this method(kinda) to finish smooth up the triggers on revo's and other hammered weapons.
With the weapon unloaded----> Cock the hammer. Exert pressure on the hammer to close/"fire" it. Pull the trigger. This alone will usually take a trigger pull weight down a little. All you are doing is smoothing the parts by rubbing them together while they are held together under pressure. On most new revo's I do this while sitting in my easy chair watching TV. Done 300-500 times it will have some effect on the weight at which the trigger "breaks". I usually wrap my thumb with tape before starting this process to prevent a nasty blister.
Thanks Guys. I haven't had a chance to shoot it yet. The hammer breaks clean with moderate presure and feels a lot better. it dosen't break as clean as I would like when I pull trigger it seems to have a little creap to it but it is so much better than be for. thats on my 45 colt. I went ahead and did 44 sbh & and Im going to do my 44 flattop and then take a look at 44srh. Thanks again tray
