Tom,

The best non-dead weight trigger pull gage I have ever used is the Schrader Guage as sold by
Gil Hebard.

Beware of the digital solid state gages. They have a lifetime of a may-fly!

Jerry, thanks so much for a heads up.  I respect your creds......Gil doesn't list anything but the Lyman May Fly which I had already committed to.  So, we'll just see if the dice I rolled give me a winner.

Thanks again.

Gil Hebards store  closed after his death. a loss of a great shooter and a great resource of items for sure

I use a rcbs non electrical and it does well.

I have an RCBS Premium Trigger Pull Scale that I'd sell for $25 shipped.

Put bullets or water in a container. Hook a wire rod over the trigger of your unloaded gun. Using a postal scale, weigh box, contents and rod of last group that doesn't trip the trigger. Cheap, easy, and accurate.

Is that the economist seeping out or the frugalness coming to the forefront. This is exactly what I use to test rifle  and pistol triggers.

Dewey,

I never found a postal scale that was even remotely reliable or accurate.  Every one should be checked against a range of certified dead-weights at from 2# to 4#.

Too much trouble--get a set of NRA weights.
