4 leaf vs 3 leaf sear spring


Recommended Posts

I've played with both 3 and 4 leaf springs in my xx11 pistols and can't say that I have a definite preference for one over the other.


I think I probably liked the 4 leaf springs when I had less experience adjusting the spring because the trigger return was decoupled from the disconnector.  I could set a safe disconnector weight and then lighten the trigger return to tweak the trigger weight.


Currently, I don't worry so much about the perfect trigger weight... I worry more about safe sear and disconnector weight and I don't notice an extra couple of ounces more or less after the timer goes off.


That said, I wouldn't take out a perfectly good 4 leaf spring and replace it with a 3 leaf spring just because it's a 4 leaf spring.
