For Christmas my wife bought me some spring kits for for my Ruger BlackHawk and my Ruger GP100. Yesterday I decided to go ahead with the trigger job on the BlackHawk.
I received 2 spring kits for this gun.
1. 30oz trigger spring/17lb hammer spring
2, 40oz trigger spring/19lb hammer spring
I used the 30oz spring kit.
Complete disassembly instructions in the Ruger manual supplied with the gun.
I used a Dremel with a soft polishing wheel and jewelers ruse to polish the contact surfaces on the hammer and trigger to slick them up without changing the shape or removing metal. You can't tell from the pictures but you can still see the original factory tooling marks on all polished surfaces.
The trigger, hammer, pawl and transfer bar have to be put back in the frame at the same time. On a side note if you do this look at the right side edge of the transfer bar near the top. Mine had some signs of wear where it rubbed the frame. Polish this area as well to help smooth out more of the drag. Doesn't take much but helps more than you would think.
Reassembled and tested.
Trigger job complete. There is virtually no drag, creep or notable travel on the trigger before the hammer drops. Dry fire test the first time I touched the trigger the hammer dropped without me intending it to. Since this is one of the guns I use in my classes I hope it will help stress the importance of keeping your finger off the trigger until you are on target.
