    Wolff Springs

    So I went ahead and ordered the Shooter's Pak TYPE-2 reduced power mainspring for my S&W 65 revolver and all I can say is holy! It comes with reduced power power rib mainspring and 3 rebound springs in 13, 14 and 15 Lbs.

    The power rib is easy to install but the rebound spring is a bit trickier specially for somebody with sometime clumsy fingers. But a pair of fine needle nose pliers saved the day holding the 14 Lbs spring.

    The difference is AMAZING. Much easier to shoot double action and it feels a lot smoother for some reason. HOWEVER, do not even think about shooting single action, you lay your eyes on the trigger and it will go bang.

    I tested it with some resized & primed cases and it popped them every time without a failure. I will see how well the gun goes at the IDPA match this saturday.

    Here's the tool you need for that pesky S&W rebound slide spring.

    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,

    Wolff - yep, great springs.

    Good addition Captain Crunch.

    Actually, if you're have a grinder and the right file you can adapt a screwdriver blade to make a nifty tool that will get the rebound spring in pretty easily.

    The next time you have the rebound spring out - roll up a few progressively finer grits of 3M Wet or Dry paper into tight cylinders and use them to carefully polish the machine/drill marks out of the spring hole in the rebound slide.
    You can also very lightly stone the flanges on the rebound slide that slide back & forth on that post.

    The more flawlessly perfect (in general) that you get the rebound slide - the smoother your trigger action will be and you can take that "grit" out of the trigger return/reset.
    Don't over-do it though.

    Darn it guys.... now you tell me!

    QK, I am gonna give polishing a shot in the near future. Right now I am happy that I am not trying to find a flying spring somewhere in the living room.

    Range report: Shot an IDPA match and it made quite a difference! Not having to concentrate so much on pulling the darn trigger made for better accuracy on my part....most of the time
    Kidding aside it does give you a much better control of the revolver and you can almost shoot as fast as other shooters with autoloaders and less trouble keeping your front sight n the target.
    It was an amazing upgrade for measley $12.00
