The best way to measure trigger pull is with weights. As the NRA does........
Also, the placement of the 'bar' in the middle of the trigger's arch is vital for repeatable results.
FWIW: I have never owned a S&W revolver that had a factory SA trigger pull above 3 3/4lb from the factory.
My FA, .454 came to me with very clean breaking 4 lb pull. This was very easy to reduce to 3 lbs, by just a little re-arching of the hammer mainspring.
No issues with the FA trigger in 21 yrs of ownership. The gun did go back to FA a few yrs ago to get the FP upgrade after the OEM, FP broke.

My first 83, bought used, had the action job and trigger stop. When i purchased my latest 83, it did not have the action job, though it was listed as having it. I sent it back for the action job and trigger stop after shooting it twice.

I won't say that I won't own a FA without both, but if I were to find a good deal on one without at least the action job, it will make a trip to FA as soon as I get my hands on it.

I prefer light triggers, but I am a Benchrest shooter primarily.

Default no problem...

the .41 arrived today, and it was just what I hoped for.


the difference in trigger pulls is negligible, with the .45 being ever so slightly heavier.


neither one needs to go back to F/A for any work.


all's well and thank you for your input.

I have a model 83, 10" silhouette 44 Mag I bought used, made in 1990 then shipped to Hawaii according to the factory. It has the lightest trigger of any firearm I've ever owned. It's half the trigger pull of any S&W I've ever felt and I own and shoot a many of them. But I wouldn't change the trigger pull for nothing.
