Fellas: a friend just picked up a very nice, almost new Security Six (357). The single action is very nice but the double action is a bit long in the tooth; it is smooth, but long and heavier (of course) than a S&W da pull.

Are there any tricks or tips you could share to help either reduce the weight of the da pull on this piece or to smooth it better???

Thankls for the help. Mikey.

Don't know Mikey...picked up mine new in 1985 for...$235!!! Had LaRocca Gunworks works the trigger and it's just fine...I wouldn't know how to slick'r up other than maybe a wolffe spring kit.

Hey Doug:: he has already picked up a Wolff Spring Kit for this revolver but just has not yet installed it. I'm hoping it might help a bit but to be honest, the single action pull is nice and light and although smooth, the da pull is a bit 'long'. We'll see what happens with the new springs.

Thanks for the upshot.

Get some snap caps and dry fire it some along with shooting it . Often that is all that is needed to slick up the action some . Not a full blown trigger job but lets the surfaces that contact each other wear in some .

Afternoon fellers,

Years ago, I did the spring kit to my security six SS, but quickly found I wanted a heavier spring on the hammer.

The light one just didn't give relyable results.

After very minor work, my single action trigger pull is, and continues to be, light and sweet, and as I don't do a lot of double action shooting that is also fine, although maybe long as you say (??).

Being that RUGERS have for many years, rang my bell, I have limited experience with other brands,

Some look very fine, and are smooth as the snot on the china door knob, but I have and will continue to do so, award the winners points to "TOUGH" with fancy and shiny com'in in at second place.

Just my opinion, but have been around long enough to have those quite firmly in place.

Keep em coming!

Just two points: the Ruger's can be dryfired without snap caps(in fact the owners manual on my SS Security six stated this and recomended it). Second, if you get used to the Ruger double action it clunks to a stop just before let off, alowing a final sight picture before release. 8)

My Ruger New Model Bh manual states on page 27:"DRY-FIRING: Going through the actions of cocking, aiming, and pulling the trigger of an unloaded gun is known as "Dry Firing." It can be useful to learn the "feel" of your revolver. Be certain the revolver is unloaded and that the gun is poinying in a safe direction even when practicing by dry-firing. The Ruger New Model revolvers can be dry-fired without damage to the firing pin or other components." 8) Just so you don't think I am blowing hot air.

Hi Mikey,
A *HUGE* +1 on the Wolff spring kit. I've used one in a SP-101 .357 and a second spring out of the same kit in my SP101 .327. The difference is immediate & remarkable. Granted, I have fired only 100+ rounds thru each since then, but no problems with primer strikes--everything went "bang," and no evidence of a light strike when I examined the primers. The DA pulls went from almost useless to fully serviceable.

In my case, the dry-firing wore a hole in my finger :) and had little or no other effect, although I've read many posters here & elsewhere who've had good results.

I've left my Service-six with its original springs, which are fine. They shoot those 200g .38s really well!! :)
