I don't know too many people who have been happy with a Derringer. I'm not sure you can do anything about the trigger pull. What kind of Derringer did you get?

Maybe a smith could smooth the parts.
That is a job that should not be taken on by someone who is inexperienced.

(Did the guy down the street say why he did not like it?)

I have the same Derringer, in same caliber. Yeah, that trigger is kinda hard, if you don't know what to look for, because it doesn't have a trigger guard. One thing to watch about that trigger is DON'T pull back on it like a normal gun. You need to give the trigger a DOWNWARDS PULL and it'll fire much easier which takes a little practice. This is the way the trigger is made, and no Smith can smooth it out. Just remember that these large bore guns aren't made for taking a lot of shots from repeatably either. Just a couple shots here and a couple shots at another time. There's a lot of power in that bullet for such a small gun, and the way the barrel breaks open. It's made for simplicity. Also the safety on it is to pull hammer back to half cock to keep hammer from riding on firing pin---in case you use it as a concealed weapon in the pocket which is how I carry my gun. If you also have the plastic grips, if you change them out for the wooden ones, you'll have a better feel as the wooden grips are larger. You can also get replacement barrels and other caliber barrels from Cobra's website---plus a schmatic/parts is available from Company. Just look for the "Large Bore Frame".

Yelp, looks like mine except for a couple things, which is, I have the blued model and my grips are larger and the word Cimmaron is engraved on them. I know Cimmaron is just the Seller of mine, but gun is made by Cobra in SLC, Utah which the barrel says.
