    Ahh - the full lug - nice.

    Surprised trigger is not so hot, but should be not too bad to smooth out. Don't back off on main spring too much or it'll be light strike time.

    Bud , Its a keeper , get the full trigger job on it , You will never regret the money spent on a long term revolver .
    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    cant say

    its not gritty

    its really smooth just to heavy

    I would guess single action 7#+ double action isn't even usable like this your pulling so hard the barrel wobbles course i thought today at work maybe its just gunked up or lube dried out
