    A tale of two Rugers

    I have two Ruger SP101s, a three-inch barrel and a four-incher. My four-incher has a buttery smooth trigger and very tight lock work. The three-inch has at best a less than mediocre trigger and less well fitted lock work. While its more utilitarian lock work is not a problem, its trigger is.

    I am no gun tinkerer since the rheumatoid arthritis facet of MCTD has bunged up my hands for precise work. And I do not know what steps are available for a non-gunsmith like me anyway. To whom may I send this revolver to improve its trigger to at least approach my four-inch without reducing the mainspring's force on hammer fall?

    Any halfway competent gunsmith can fix you up. My 4 inch .327 came with a miserable trigger pull: heavy, gritty, with a jerky, rough feel. A set of springs, a set of shims, some light polishing, and I was in business, with a much better trigger that still busts the primer every time. Were it not for your arthritis, you could do this yourself. I would buy the springs and shims and then call around to see who is local and not too busy. The fall is usually a busy time for gunsmiths, what with hunting seasons starting, so you may have a delay, but it is easily doable.
