Trigger work
« on: October 03, 2018, 11:21:00 AM »
Hi folks!
Any of you torn into the trigger?  I am still reluctant to disassemble that deep.  I've done Glock and Springfield XD's.
If so is there anything we can do to improve on it?  In particular that bump at the end of the pull?

Hello Rog. I have not delved that deep into mine yet. The trigger has actually gotten better after putting more rounds through it. I think shooting it has helped greatly. However, I still secretly wish there was a built in trigger adjustment screw.  I think a little polishing may really smooth one out nicely though!

I'm with Sean, more shooting will smooth things out and even lighten the pull some. Mine started life with a 5-1/2 pound pull and, after more than a thousand rounds, has settled in at a tad over 5. I think that "bump" you're feeling at the break is the nose of the sear dragging slightly as it releases from the hammer. Below is a picture of a new sear. Take a look at the nose of the sear (red arrow) and you'll see that it's rough. I suppose the break-in process could be expedited by polishing the sear and hammer contact points but, range time and dry-firing will accomplish the same.

Thanks guys. I am an avid dry firer.  I firmly believe it is one of the best accuracy exercises one can do.  As well as assist in that "break in"
