    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    I am looking into installing a Bisley hammer on my Ruger Super Blackhawk in SS.. I was looking in Brownells and I notice something interesting; I can buy a POWER CUSTOM BISLEY TRIGGER KIT (VERY NICE BUT PRICEY AT $170+), BUT I CAN’T BUY A BISLEY TRIGGER (FROM RUGER) WITHOUT A FFL. Why? Is it because sear work should be done by a pro? Dose Ruger hand fit all their hammer and triggers or are they just drop-ins because all the parts are made on a CNC? I don’t know?

    I would like to know if someone has done this conversion and were did they get the parts. Can anyone suggest someone good to do the work? This is going to be a hunting side arm, so it would have to have a smooth trigger.
    Thanks.

    Brownells sells a Bisley conversion that includes the trigger. Their part #078-000-001 (blue) or -003 in stainless. Note that the grip frames are oversized and will require some fitting.

    I've used these conversions several times with excellent results.

    Ya, I was lookink at that, but I like the Bisley hammer, not the grip. Do you know if the same manufacture sell just the hammer stuff?

    Neither the trigger nor hammer are restricted parts. Both are available from Brownells:

    780-001-217 Trigger
    780-001-194 Hammer assembly

    Ruger recommends the hammer assy be installed by a gunsmith, but Brownells will sell you the parts.

    Thanks! My bad. I saw the FFL under the restrictions and didn't bather to click on it for details.

    In your opinion, is the Power Pro Kit worth the money? I have never come across one in real life so I don’t know.

    I dont believe I'd buy it, but I have the correct jigs for that trigger job so I wouldn't need the prepped parts.
