    1894 Sear

    I am doing a trigger job on an 1894 Cowboy Limited and ran into a deformed sear. It was not symmetrical and less than a quarter of the sear was engaging the hammer slot. I have worked it to where I have over 90 percent engagement now with just under a 3lb. pull (a little over 1lb on the trigger return spring). As I worked the sear with my stone it seemed to work faster and I think I may have gone past the case hardening.

    My question is has anybody have any experience with after market sears? I am thinking of ordering sear from Brownells or going with a after market trigger kit but that will be $100. Wanting opinions.

    If it was me? It seems an awful lot of work to go through for another factory trigger. I'd seriously consider a Ranger Point Precision after market trigger...

    I have one coming for my 1895G...

    You can get a Ranger Point Precision or a Wild West Guns trigger. Hopefully you were talking about the trigger and not the hammer. I have Wild West triggers in all my 1894s, they have been out for years. Would like to see a few reports on the RPP triggers before I jumped, but everything I've purchased from RPP has been quality.

    I am not in a hurry, the trigger is good for now. When I get a few more rounds through it i will check the sear and go from there. I would like to see how the RPP trigger turns out like. I believe it will be top quality like everything else I have bought from them.
