    Polishing Advise...

    I have a couple of pistols that I have been wanting to work on. I have had them both stripped so I know how they go together. One is a Taurus PT100AFS and the other is a Ruger P89DC. What I am wanting to do is lighten the trigger and smooth out the moving parts.

    Another one I am thinking about is my Sig P250. I am more affraid to mess with it, 1. because it's my newest baby and have paid the most for it (in my HANDGUN collection) and 2. it is DAO and I have been told that if it is TOO smoth I will end up with light strikes.

    Tell me what you guys think.

    I think that if any of these guns are your EDC or may be used for SD, not to mess with the trigger at all. If you have to use the gun defensively and there is any trial, an attorney will be up there parading your gun with the "hair trigger" around in front of the jury like a new father shows off his kid.

    Good point Todd. I will leave the P250 alone then. The other two have become more "range guns". The PT100 spends some time in my desk drawer.

    Lets just use the P89 only for this application. I am actualy more acurate with the Ruger anyways. I would like to be more educated than anything so that if I get another gun, I will know some of the steps to take and the parts that need addressing.

    Yeah a trigger job can bite you in the rump legally especially if it's too light. I don't like my triggers on a carry weapon all that much different then when they were new anyway. You can polish the parts and not change the springs and that can smooth it out without it looking like you tried to make it a "hair trigger" But with a carry weapon it will usually smooth out a good bit on it's own because most of us practice with our carry weapons most. All the extra trigger time does wonders for a trigger group.

    I'm with you guy's. I should have been a little clearer. I don't want it to be dangerous, just smoother. I just want to polish the parts that will make that happen. If I change springs, they would be replaced with factory parts. I just want to get the optimum "flow" with the trigger, if that makes sense.
