I compared it to Winds Ruger GP-100. I like that a lot better than the Smith. The Ruger also has a small (very small) catch when the cylinder locks up, but finishing the pull is smooth.

Is what I'm describing normal for a revolver trigger, specifically for a Smith?
no your S&W trigger pull should not be doing that. If you have the correct screw driver (hollow ground, fits tight), remove the grips and the side plate, look at the cylinder stop and cylinder stop spring and compare them with the diagrams online. Perhaps the spring is binding or is in backwards.

Those older Smith are great! I like it because it has the nostalgia of being a classic police revolver.

Ladysmith. I absolutely love it, but I probably won't be shooting .357 out of it again (had to try it once though). Never really understood the appeal of wheel guns until I bought one, now I'm pretty much all in.

Thanks. I bought it new at Bass Pro so I would think it came from the factory that way. I'll have my gunsmith take a look at it tomorrow.

I say send it into Smith. They'll make it right.

It was time for a new signature. This is what you get.

My gunny said the same. I can get them to lighten up the trigger at the same time. I don't have the tools to measure it accurately. But it feels like its more than double my XDm triggers which are around 5 lb. So I'm guessing around 13 for the revolver. I'm thinking 9 or 10 sounds reasonable.

That sounds reasonable to me too. I think most DA revolver triggers are around 10lbs.

If it were me, I would definitely send it into Smith. Good opportunity to test out their CS a little bit.

I have a smith model 60 in 38 spc, the trigger in it has a heavier pull, but it is smooth as silk so it doesn't appear to be as heavy as it is.

I could've sworn model 60s are in .357 Magnum.
