BlueOvalBruin Posted December 20, 2011 Share Posted December 20, 2011 I'm getting close to finishing up the trigger job on my single stack but am having issues getting down to the weight I want. I'm at 3.5lbs right now and want get down to 1.75lbs. I have a perfectly flat engagement between the hammer and sear and the engagement is even on both sides. The current setup is crisp but not glass rod-like and does not follow. I was a tad conservative on the secondary angle and can probably take a little more off there if needed to reduce engagement. Force on the middle spring is roughly 8oz and sear and middle combined is 1.5lbs. I know I will need to take a bit more off the sear spring to reach my goal but won't make enough of a difference by itself. I did notice that the white ceramic stone didn't really leave the super nice mirror surface finish I was expecting. Is a mirror finish even beneficial? If so, what are people using to get it? I've used whet stones up to 8000 grit on kitchen knives but those stones are pretty big. One weird thing I should mention is that the fixture needed to be set at 23 clicks to get parallel engagement between the hammer and sear primary angle. BTW, I'm using cylinder and slide hammer and sear with svi triglide disconnector, sear spring, and triggerbar. I am also using a power custom jig. Brownells action lube on engagement surfaces. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
