    Wilson Combat kit 14# not strong enough to reset trigger

    Anyone have any issues with a 14lb rebound spring?

    I feel like the reduced weight does wonders for single action and double action, however the trigger feels like it's slow to get back into the proper location on the follow up shot.

    Is this normal? Anyone else experience this?

    It's currently affecting my 629 and 625.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you.

    Moe

    Hey Moe,

    I usually just take one (or a hair more) coil off the Factory Spring, making sure to polish the rebound slide inside and out.

    Then, you will want to stone the mainspring....one direction only....(this "aligns" the molecules/imparts eddy current? in the spring, ensuring the spring bends over its whole length, not kinks)

    Awesome advice.

    I noticed my set spring was not all the way screwed into the slot for the mainspring /rib spring slot.

    What's the proper seating placement? All the way down?

    Most Performance Center guns that I work on come with a power rib mainspring. Springs do not an action job make! Careful stoning of the correct parts in the correct places is the most important part of the job. Also lapping the rebound slide and frame does wonders for trigger reset. I use a 13# spring most often with excellent results. Also a 10-32 X 1/2" allen set screw with thread lock will give you infinite adjustment of the mainspring for reliable ignition in S/A and D/A modes. Mcmaster.com has the set screws. The power rib spring usually requires a longer strain screw due to the rib.

    See now that's some good advice. I'll make sure to grab one at the shop tomorrow and give it a shot.

    It's disappointing that no real work is done to a PC trigger.

    I've been dry firing my 629 for a while and with my Wilson Combat springs installed I screwed my set screw all the way down and I can achieve 2lb sa and 8m5 da. I am not complaining but before sinking it all the way the da was 6.5 and it seemed like the sync was off with the cylinder and hammer.

    Hey Moe,

    Get a good book, Jerry Kuhnhausen comes to mind... https://www.midwayusa.com/product/69...rry-kuhnhausen

    After fixin' and adjustin' what needs doing...(some judicious stoning/lapping? as Mark said) I highly recommend a few (dozen?) dry fire sessions, this will put the finishing touches on it.

    Some of the younger fellers like the Apex Trigger. I do the old "interrupted trigger pull".....

    My trigger stop doesn't do anything on my 625.

    I can see light all around it. Why even put one on if it doesn't do anything

    I have to say that my 460 Performance Center's trigger is lighter and more crisp than my dad's 44 RM he gave me before he died and he had the trigger professionally done. In fact anyone I let shoot the 460 is amazed at how smooth it is with an extremely clean break and no let off whatsoever. Point pull and bang. The initial pull is less that the 44RM as well.
