I'm tired of reading about the Poor Man's Trigger Job. Ruger SAs seem relatively simple, want to make sure I'm not missing anything.

So far this is about the best info I've found.

http://www.cylindersmith.com/triggerspring.html

I installed a Wolff lighter trigger return spring, and was rewarded with a lighter pull and the trigger failing to return, despite polishing the frame/transfer bar/hammer interfaces. I think the hammer spring needs to be changed to a lighter one as well to reduce the clamping force on the transfer bar. Seems a lighter firing pin spring would help too.

Creep is a function of engagement...any parameters to stay within?

Also interested in limiting overtravel.

Info or links to info appreciated.

Thanks

David,

The Ruger should be capable of 1.75 with no change in springs, if done correctly.
