Just put Wolff spring into 44 mag Super Redhawk.
Easy enough job, and trigger and hammer pull are lessened with reliable
primer ingnition.

Now I just would like to eliminate the trigger creep. Will lapping, stoning sear remove this creep? I have had success with other guns but by following instructions. Does anybody know of "instructions" or have experience with this trigger?

Thanks!

Fred :D

I had a couple of them at one time and what I did after changing the springs was to take the action apart and polish all of the contacting parts. I did not remove much metal at all. You have to be super careful not to change any angles or such. This made my pull superb on my two. One thing though, don't go with the lightest mainspring. I did that and experienced some misfires. Went up on the size and never had it happen again. GS

Zeus,

How did you polish the sears and parts? I would use a stone is this ok? I have used a "Wyoming stone" on other sears with good results is this similar to what you have done?

Thanks for your help!

I've also taken apart my Super Redhawk and done some fine polishing. I use elbow grease, 320 grit paper and oil to get rid of those darn casting ridges on the internal working surfaces. Then, I switch over to my dremel tool with a tiny polishing wheel. I put on a dab of Hoppes gunmetal polish, and away we go. I get a super slick mirror shine on the stainless parts. This technique has worked well for me in removing the gritty feel of the action. I also use the same technique to remove height from the sear on the hammer, which in effect removes trigger creep. It has to be done little at a time, by disassembling and reassembling the gun, so that the right amount is taken off. You don't want to take off too much, or else you will have a problem keeping the sear engaged. My feel for the gun is much more enjoyable, and it has also had a positive effect on my accuracy with the gun. Before doing this, the trigger felt rough, and it seemed like I was pulling it a mile(in single action mode) before it fired. The rough feel and anticipation were killing my accuracy. :gulp:
