all my double action revolvers are like drawing a compound bow, it smoothly & gradually gets harder until BOOM, you hit that let off.
the triggers on my H&R & New England revolvers are like drawing a 50 or 60 pound bow, my S&W is like drawing a 25 pound bow. a guy I know just bought a used S&W 500, his trigger felt exactly the same as mine.
in all my revolvers, I hear the noises of all the mechanicals & see the cylinder rotate & lock but don't feel each individual step of the process like you describe. is the gun new? maybe it will smooth out with time?
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
