    I've always just used the one on my hand. It's very adaptable to most every trigger.

    I ended up with a deal on a Wheeler, but even normally they're around $20 or less. Does just fine for me.

    Yeah but you can't measure the weight. That's what I want to do

    I seen those. Where are they made? Pretty accurate?

    Mine doesn't have a 'made in' mark anywhere on it, but for the price and quality, I'd guess it's Chinese made. It's not a high-end item, but turns out repeatable results. I don't have anything super-accurate to compare it to, but a 2lb dumbell shows up as 2lb, and a 5lb shows up as 5-1/8lb...so couldn't say if the weight is off a bit, or the scale.

    Reviews indicate that it's not for extensive use like in a shop, but for an individual owner, you probably won't beat it unless you just make your own.

    Look up Brownell's on the internet and search for the trigger pull gauge. I think they sell a couple different models. I bought and used one years ago when I 'smithed Hi-Powers and SIG-Sauer handguns.

    I've got a Timney and like it. It had good reviews as well. But now I'll probably buy a digital just because I need to measure down into the ounces. I think Midway has (had?) them on sale. It makes me wish I had bought the digital in the first place, but the Timney works just fine for regular triggers.

    Is it like this? Timney TS 025 Trigger Tension Scale | eBay I found somewhere I can get it cheaper. Good enough?? I like that its USA made it says it measures .25#?? Accurate enough?

    I use an RCBS and a Timney. The RCBS works well for doing trigger jobs as it is very accurate in the low range. IE. Set a 1911 trigger spring to 1-1/2 lbs. then the sear spring to 2-1/2 lbs. etc. I then use the Timney for checking total pull after the job is complete as it is super accurate from 3lbs up. The Timney has a "memory" marker that does not move after the trigger is released.

    Try to get a gauge that can be calibrated and has a memory marker.

    No. It does not go up to 25 lbs. This is it.
