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

Thank you Tray, glad you like it...

Is there anything you should know??? Yeah, take lot's of ammo with you!!!

What pull weight did you wind up with? SAFETY is always the biggest concern and as long as the hammers will stay "solidly cocked" until you pull the trigger, you're good to go....

One Thang Comes To Mind

PUSH OFF !!

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.

Good Shootin' ----pruhdlr

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
