Question Question About Smith Model 360PD Scandium/Titanium Question

Hello all:

I have a Model 360PD Scandium/Titanium 357 snubby. I ran across it and bought it for a song.

My problem is, the trigger in single action is about to kill me. I can hardly hold it on target and hit anything at 21 feet. It is so very, very stiff.

In addition to that, I bought a 357 Ruger LCR that has a butter smooth trigger. If I had bought the Smith first no doubt I would not have the problem I have. I know I am comparing apples to oranges or such, but is there any way of making the little Smith better? I am not ranking on Smith just wanting to have a pleasurable experience from it.

Will a spring kit be worth a try? Which brands do you recommend?

Then you have that old argument that if you ever use the thing for SD the persecutor can make you out to be a John Wayne trigger happy guy. I am in a pickle as to what to do.

Another issue, will this upgrade or customization make the little J worth any less?

My thoughts.

Yours?

Are you certain that you are talking about SINGLE ACTION trigger break?

Typically that is much lighter than DA pull. Not to mention SA pull is only a 16th of an inch or so

Springs will usually make things lighter, polishing makes things smoother.

If there is an issue with the action then a gunsmith is what you need.



To smooth out a double action pull, pay a gunsmith money to stone the action or each night as you watch the news pull the trigger until your finger gets tired. At the end of a month the pull will be much smoother

I stand corrected for my wrong use of the proper nomenclature.

Please forgive.
