Knowledge is more important.

Just have to ask, what model of S&W?

Normally, older ones need a spring replacement (What I would suggest before stoning any part.)

I believe Wolff has a spring kit that may help if you want to look at that first.

And replacing the springs will provide plenty of knowledge on the workings of revolver without ruining mating angles of parts on first try.

Remember, you can remove metal easily, but it's a b!tch to put it back.

Extra parts may be a little costly. Some things on the Youtube channel may look easy, but I've found that they may not have the proper warnings on what to look out for.

Replace springs and dry-firing may get you the smooth trigger you want.

yes there are special stones for honing triggers. also a great knowledge of how the trigger fuctions. along with having had someone teach a person to do it correctly.

a trigger is not something to mess with if you don't have the skills or knowledge of what you are doing. do yourself a huge favor and take it to a gunsmith who is competent in doing trigger jobs. this is not a job for an amatuer by any means. not doing it correctly could leave you with a very dangerous pistol. IOW, LEAVE IT ALONE!

On a S&W revolver there are many parts that move when you pull the trigger. Therefore to smooth the pull you have to smooth all those parts plus smooth everything that touches those parts. Listen to the advice above like that from masterPsmith.

I am a gunsmith in SC. S&W has about the hardest trigger pull I've dealt with. The pull can be cut in half if you know what your doing and the gun still be completely safe. If you have never done a trigger or action job, pay a good gunsmith to do it for you. If it is done wrong you could make the weapon very unsafe to carry or use. I do them all the time and its not hard to do. It will cost you about 85 bucks and you will be well satisfied with your gun

You did say smooth the trigger didn't you? What model are we talking about? I have several S&W revolvers. They have triggers that are very smooth. My 642 has a heavy trigger. But it is still very smooth. What exactly are you trying to accomplish?
