I did a Taurus PT809 and I clipped 3 coils out of the mainspring in addition to stoning the engagements. which made for a freakin nice DA pull and a crisp 3 pound SA break but it wouldnt shoot WWB. Light strikes like crazy. SO I got a new mainspring and clipped only 2 coils, DA pull increased marginally and no more light strikes. Still has a sweet 3 pound SA break.
OK Josh, the first thing I do on all of my SA revolvers is cut two coils to start with and it sure helps the trigger pull. So I told a gunsmith that I did that and he chewed me out. I know it is a poor mans trigger job but my revolvers aren't too shabby. I have one revolver (Vaquero) that is tricked out completely. I took the Wolf spring out of it and put it into another Vaquero that I have and switched it back and fourth between the spring that I had cut down and out of all honesty my spring feels better. The Wolf spring is a nice spring but IMO if you can cut it down without messing it up (like I just did on my GP100, oops) then I say order the Wolf spring at that point. But if you cut it down and it works, IMO that is fine.
What is your opinion Josh.
Yes, by cutting the mainspring down too far you can have a "Light primer Strike."
