    Question Heavy trigger cure?

    Hey All.
    Just got a new Taurus ultralight .38 special with the 2 inch barrell. I really like it, but it feels like it has a 20lb trigger pull on it. My gf couldnt even pull it with just her finger.
    Any way to loosen it up a dab? Dont want a hair trigger, but this is pretty tight. HG

    I put Wolff springs on a revolver with a heavy trigger. I recommend them highly. They removed the heavy staging of the intial pull and smoothed the entire process.

    Did you give it a thorough clean and lube? That might help. It will probably loosen up with use - including dry firing.

    Other than that, I'm sure a half decent gun smith could work wonders by cleaning and polishing the innards.

    New springs and special lubricants only help a little.
    The only thing that'll make a real difference is a good trigger-job by a skilled gunsmith who knows revolver actions well.

    If that's the gun you're going to depend upon for social use, by all means employ a professional gunsmith. An action job hereabouts runs about $85 for DA revolvers.

    Often times a too light mainspring results in misfires from light hammer blows.
