I have had this 64-3 for 6 or 7 years. Last year I decided to try my hand at polishing some internals and swapping springs. I didn’t do anything to my m64 since it has a nice trigger pull.
Well that was last year.
The stock trigger breaks at 10#. I polished my rebound slide & frame where it rides and installed a 14# rebound spring. Trigger now breaks at a very smooth 9.25# in double action. Need to get out-to function test but I expect it to be ok

Looks like you got the insides cleaned out really well. Glad everything is running smoother. Can't wait to try it out.

Looks great. Did you have any parts left over : )
Not many! I use a small ziplock to bag and tag all original parts so I know where they came from. I also have a notebook with a page for each revolver. I document the stock trigger pull, notes on how trigger feels, what I did to it and what replacement parts were installed, then the final results. I have a Wolff standard power power rib mainspring to install in my M15-3 yet and a gritty trigger on my 10-7 that needs looked at.

Nice ! What did you polish the outer parts with? I bought some Mothers polish a while back, meaning to shine up the outside of a Rossi 720 but I haven't done it yet. Any tips you have would be appreciated.

Have not done anything to the exterior since shortly after I bought it 8 years ago. Back then I cleaned the gave it another "cleaning" with Mothers. I wasn't trying for a high polish finish, but more of a deep clean. Basically applied a bit of Mothers, then lightly buffed it off, all by hand. Remove the grips, cylinder thumbpiece and cylinder and do one small section at a time
