Hello,

I own a 627 8rd performance center revolver and really love it. the precision is excellent and the single action is genious for me.
But....
The double action is very hard to pull. It is very easy to find the turning and trigger points but the trigger weight is extreme - opposite to the single action wich is very light and braking like glass.

Is there any possibility to reduce trigger weight in double action without changing the perfect single action?

thx in advance
best
Kai

I have the same S&W PC 627 and the double action on mine is as good as the single action. I would return to the S&W Preforance Center for correction before getting it worked on elsewhere. JMO ....

I agree, send it back to the PC. Their guns are supposed to have the reduced power springs and smoothed actions, so a very heavy DA pull means it needs work. It should be in the 8 - 9# ballpark. Some PC guns are not as good as others...... but for the ridiculous prices they charge, you should make them fix it.
