Default Trigger Job done on my SD 40

Just got my SD 40 back this week from the gunsmith.

He had done a trigger job on my Walther PPS previously, and it was as good as any I'd seen.

On my SD, the trigger is not as good as the Walther, but still very nice, and nicer than anything else I've tried out of the box.

It's about 3.5 lbs....a little less would have made me happier.

I won't get to shoot it until next week due to work, but I did want to mention that the trigger on these pistols can be made to be very good, and of the same quality as more expensive pistols.

Can you give me an ideal of what he did so that I could see if a local gunsmith here could do the same?

I apologize, but I don't know exactly what he did except for the usual polishing and fitting of bearing surfaces.

The name of the shop is APW Cogan (apwcogan.com), and I know of him simply because his shop used to be in Florida, and I had him do some refinishing on my rifles about 15 years ago (hunting rifles).

He has somehow developed a niche in striker fired pistol action jobs, and I can vouch for the quality of his work.

He does action shooting work on pistols too, but for carry weapons his trigger work is focused on reliability vs. light pull for competition.

I'll try to comment next week after I have a chance to shoot this piece with the improved trigger.

Thus far, I am impressed with a pistol I purchased new for about $360 shipped.
The trigger job was $120, and that still puts me well ahead of similar striker fired pistols.
(Disclaimer: I admit the pistol won't be worth anything if it doesn't shoot well)
