    Good post. I have a 642 also. Very heavy trigger pull for sure. I might send to Smith & Wesson one day to have it lightened up - haven't decided yet....

    Well I just stopped by my local shop and picked up a Wilson Combat spring set for it. The guy says it's a pretty easy install so I am gonna give it a try. I will post results as soon as I accomplish the task.

    Hey, that's very nice. I hate to hijack a thread, but I'd love to hear about those sights.

    To keep this on-topic, I love this little 640, on which has been executed a nice trigger job, including the spring swap. It ignites the CCI primers just fine.

    With snap caps in place: Squeeze the trigger (soft click; soft click; CLICK!) Repeat. May also do the same with live rounds when pointing at appropriate target. (Warning: last CLICK will be replaced with BANG!) It WILL get better after about a bazillion clicks and it's even more darned fun to make it do so by shooting it.

    As mentioned, I’ve had a trigger and action job performed but I’m still not happy with it, especially the return. After a few thousands cycles, I’m sending it off again for another try. I guess my older Model-28, 27 & 19 spoiled me quite a bit. Now, if you ever used a Colt Python on the range, you would likely have a whole different opinion of S&W.

    +1 This makes a huge difference.

    The price from Smith and Wesson is $80 plus $14 for shipping ($94 total).

    According to the customer service rep, this results in a 25% reduction in trigger pull. They smooth out the surfaces and change the rebound spring.

    He also mentioned that it is difficult to stag the trigger after the trigger job because it is one smooth pull.

    I forgot to ask him how long it takes.
