    OK...I give...pleading ignorance...WHAT is a "duty action" job?
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    I don't know about Ogelsby but usually it means slicking the action up but not lightening the trigger pull very much, if at all. Supposedly to help prevent "inadvertent" discharges and light strikes. You don't want sneeze and accidently pop some POS that's giving up!

    My BUG is a 360, it's action was done by Mark Hartshorne. DA is very slick but not too light 8-9lbs, however the SA pull is incredible, about 1lb, it isn't even really a pull, more of a touch. I shoot it DA almost exclusively. I have had no problems with light strikes.

    You got it. A slick, smooth, no hump action but not a light pull.

    I would expect the charging holes in the cylinder to be chamfered a bit, too.
