Of course I do all my own action jobs but it's pretty simple to slick up a Ruger Redhawk.
Very good point.
My Redhawk has had some trigger work done in the past according to the man who sold it to me. (a friend, fellow club member, and shootin' buddy) I wouldn't want that trigger to be any lighter or smoother. I have to coach myself to anticipate the hammer dropping far faster/easier than some of my other revolvers in DA. As far as the single action, the difference in my Smiths vs. Rugers is so negligible it's not even worth mentioning.
On the flip side every
Smith I've shot is smooth and consistent. My SP101 began with a very
high resistance and lengthy pull. It has since lightened up after many range trips as well as nightly dry-firing 100-300 times.
