Default Action work gunsmith needed..

Ok I just bought the wife a ruger 380 LCP for her birthday and the trigger IMO is awful.. To much pull( not pound wise) length wise.. Anyone know of any gunsmith that has/does an action job on one of these? Any help would be nice.. I've made a few phone calls and no luck so far..

i dont think you can atm. ive never heard of anyone doing that.

my wife has a bersa thunder 380 and a xdm in 9mm. she likes the xdm a lot more because the trigger is the same on all shots.

The long trigger pull is intentional, it's to keep people from shooting themselves in the leg/foot. I don't think you'll find any after mkt support.

If you want a short trigger, try a Sig or Colt Mustang.

I unsterstand the reason behind it(there is no safety ) but at the same time 3/4 of an inch pull its a bit much.. I'm not trying to make it single action just a bit less play.. And she wants the slide hard chromed..it wasn't an option with the pink version.. It has a crimson trace so not worried about not being able to see down the slide to the sights..

I had to add the laser as well. The speed bump like sights were rough on my old eyes. I can get a clean release from mine - I practice w the laser but if you are still having issues, might be time to contact Ruger.

If you have a gunshop nearby, take a trip and try a few others. If they are the same, it's the gun and if not, Ruger's CS should take care of you.

Just my .02 - I like the long trigger, you gotta really want to fire it and yet, under pressure, it's very easy to fire. Just not a whole lotta fun...

We're you aware that duracoat is probably just as good & the color choice is, well, HUGE!

A guy in Vegas, $30, pick your color or a few bucks more if you want multi colors or cameo.

The finishes these days are light years ahead of the old days. Easier to clean, less friction, etc. but to be honest, nothing wrong w existing finish either.
