Slide frame trigger job

Ok so I did a trigger job on my very used slide frame. It was very rough when I first got it and I didn't feel like spending more money on more parts. So instead I just broke out the stones and files and took all contact surfaces up to 1500 grit, greased all the surfaces with teflon grease. Now its glassy smooth and and crispy break. However I was curious if there was such a thing as too much. I mean with a real gun you dont typically want to do to much unless it's like a bench rest gun, then you can get down to ounces.

So I was curious, how many pounds are your guys trigger pulls at and are you using roller sears? So far I have been able to get it down to about 1.5 to 1.75 pounds albeit sometimes the hammer will miss the sear so to run reliably I lengthen the lug a bit and it's at about 2 pounds.

my old LB Piranha had a 2.0# trigger that was short and sweet, but much lighter than that it would "follow" which you don't want. That's lighter than my USPSA gun at the time.

Do you have a sear you can adjust through the top of the gun?

I absolutely refuse to run a slider frame without a roller sear. It does wonders to the trigger break. I don't have a trigger gauge but with one, trigger pull becomes almost the same cocker as it is uncocked.

The hammer has an adjustable lug.

@magmoormaster, I will definitely have to look into getting the roller sear. Though I imagine it would be a bit easier to short stroke wouldnt?

Hm, I wouldn't say so. No more than it is regularly. But in all fairness the only time I really short stroke is when the guns timing is off.

Magmoo is right, a roller sear does wonders. Properly timed right, and I’ve only ever seen one done up this way but the owner had the hinge tuned to such a point you could actually walk it to some degree.

Wow so almost like an ult mag trigger. Also I saw that at one time there were roller trigger plates too. Were those more of a gimmick or what
