    I have a SA custom loaded that came witha trigger pull im estimating between 5-6 lbs. While we dont have a ccw law in this state, i do like to carry it around on outings, fishing trips, etc. I would like to get the trigger worked over a little bit but i dont want to go too light.

    PCAD12, if your gun is new take the allen wrench SA provided and stick it in the trigger and twist till you get the desired effect you want (adjustable trigger is standard on a "Loaded")

    Bigboom the adjustable trigger is misnamed..All it adjusts is over travel.. If the screw is in too far it will not let the trigger
    release the sear,it can be taken out and not be missed at all..
