Weighing trigger

Post by 9146gt on Mon Oct 28, 2013 3:52 pm

1: What is a official trigger test weight set (do all weights need to be official NRA) ?
2:Must it have the roller on the bar at the trigger ?
3:Is a curved trigger a pivot trigger ?

you just  need to be able to lift a 3.5 lb weight off a surface with its attachment point being the center of the trigger with the gun held so the barrel is straight up and level and the grip safety held in and slide safety in the off position. a NRA approved weight is what it will checked with so having one is nice but weight is weight,  as long as it lifts it and doesn't drop the hammer your good to go. just remember that if you just adjusted the spring, that after shooting it will usually lighten up, so most people add a little extra weight when testing a new setup, i go with 3.75lb, and if it just barely holds it then thats where i leave it. This is for a wad gun, ball gun needs to lift 4 lbs, revolver 2lbs. center fire i believe is 2.5.

I'm pretty sure the "offical NRA set" has to be stamped NRA on all weights, and I believe the stick has to be as it came with the kit--so with the roller on the stick.  If the roller is removed the entire weight set would be light.

A curved trigger is NOT a pivot trigger.  A 1911 is NOT a pivot trigger whereas a Model 14 S&W revolver, and most american .22's are pivot triggers.

There are two types of NRA official weights one with one without the roller. The one with tends to weigh the trigger  lighter be cause it centers better. Now witch is correct?

my weight set WITH the roller doesn't come close to "centered" or "balanced" when the trigger in on the roller, but it does let me pick just the very last point of the weight off the bench. I don't think it makes any difference whether I pick up the weights on the roller, or from the stick so the weight lifts straight up.

That is the question that I should have asked.
