Default Trigger jobs for my Models 65-3 and 49

Don't know why it took me so long to have this done, but I couldn't be happier with the results. The triggers weren't horrible before, were considerably heavier in double action than I like. I had gotten to the point that I was avoiding taking these guns to the range.

My gunsmith did a super job cleaning up the internals and changing out the springs. The 49 trigger turned out great and the 65-3 trigger is beyond amazing (butter smooth and light). Both will be heading back to the range with me soon... Life is good!

Talented people can do wonders and bubbas can wreck havoc. Glad yours turned out good. Who did you use?

A very experienced local gunsmith here in my Florida hometown... He is especially good with Sigs and Smiths. Couldn't be happier!

The difference between a diy job and trigger work done by a gunsmith who knows his buisness is the difference between night and day.

The folks who try to accomplish an improved trigger by relentless dry fire or mucking about with drop in springs and or mucking about with files and stones new from Brownell’s don’t know what they’re missing.

I agree completely! I could never have done this on my own. I feel so fortunate to have access to such a talented gunsmith.

Just make sure it is 100% reliable with any ammo you plan to use.

+1 to that brother. I do my own 'buba' work, and use a 'buba' test for winter environments. I take it to my range in mid-winter (well below 32 degrees F) and set it out on the bench for several hours while I shoot, or relax in the clubhouse..... After unprotected hours in the cold, if it shoots various junk ammo and factory stuff without a hitch, I expect (hope) it will hold-up. Needless to say, if I carried for SD, I would not 'gunsmith' anything.
IMHO of course,
J

I do carry for SD, and I do my own trigger jobs. But, I know where to stop. I don't mind a 10 lb DA trigger pull, as long as it is smooth.
