Re: Dan Wesson V.S. Smith & Wesson
I have done trigger/action jobs on several guns over the years and the Dan Wesson parts like the hammer and sear are very soft and will not withstand much of a trigger job. On the other hand Smith and Wesson parts are made of the hardest material of all I have worked on and will hold their triggers for thousands of rounds.
I cannot speak for the new Smiths with the lock and or the internal firing pin because I have never done an action/trigger job on one of those.
