    I usually just grit my teeth and drop the $ on the counter for the Wild West Guns trigger happy kit because I like other things about that trigger besides the ~3# pull weight.
    The last 1895GS (Remlin) I bought had a < 4# trigger out of the box so I'm leaving it alone.
    If it ain't broke I don't fix it.
    Now I have a spare WWG happy trigger kit.

    Just inherited my 1968 RC and had read all the bad trigger info!Thought this was a little odd? because while floppy, I found it light and crisp breaking so i pulled out the old RCBS trigger gauge and low and behold tried it three times! two checks were 3 lbs and one was 2 3/4 lbs! This was after I had stripped the gun of all parts and cleaned everything with hoopes #9 and put it back together dry no oil! so I assume all is well?, and I will not be fooling with any springs or stoning anything... must have already been done by the previous owner?...When i looked at the hammer surfaces where the sear rides there was absolutely no rubbing marks any where all bluing present "NOS"?.
    didn't check the springs or sear surfaces to see if anything was stoned or polished I'm just going to live in ignorant bliss that this is perfect as is.Jim

    Am I missing the pics on this? I was reading about the Swany trigger and see the two stickied threads but no pics in either are showing up for me.

    Same here -- I wonder if all of Swany's pictures were lost when Photobucket went commercial? Used to seeing broken links in that case however. I just got a 1894 and along with my 336 would love to tackle this project one weekend!

    IMHO--a light trigger belongs on a target competition gun but a hunting gun should be in the 5-10 lbs range for safety especially when in the field with a chambered round walking around with your hunting buddies. We always have a brief discussion before we embark in the field to go over our own agreed upon safety rules. It serves to remind all of safety and zone shooting rules.

    ^^^^^^^^Ah,no!^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    After learning to shoot a Ruger M77 with a 10 lb trigger and now doing some of my own smith work and having some with adjustable triggers I say 3-6 lbs on the trigger pull and no creep. I want it to surprise me when it goes off. Even when sighting in on the bench its muchmo betta.

    Wow - a 10lb trigger? A 10lb trigger would make precise shooting virtually impossible for me. I generally hunt with Ruger revolvers that all have 2.5lb triggers or my Sharps 45/90 with an 8oz double set trigger. A trigger finger does not belong anywhere inside the trigger guard unless read to fire. If hunting with others, no round in the chamber is our rule.

    A rifle with a 10lb trigger is best used as a war club IMHO.

    Old tang safety Ruger M77's were notorious for hard triggers.
