S&W M52 trigger weight

The trigger is lighter than I like, is it adjusted like the 1911? It seems similar, except the sear spring is a single blade. I'm looking to get 6 to 8oz more.

You can bend the sear spring toward the sear slightly, which may produce the effect you're looking for.  Often the engagement surfaces need refinished.
The 52s I have worked on disappointed me, when veiwing the quality of the sear/hammer work from the factory..  The hammer hooks are shorter than the typical 1911, although,  it is a better system than the 1911, in that it pulls the sear out of position, rather than push....

I couldn't figure out how to get the sear spring out. I got to it, and tried to bend it in place, didn't work. I tried prying it out with a dental pic, something is holding it in place. Can someone give me some direction? There are no youtubes for it, and did lots of googleing with no success.
Thanks, Ken

I saw that, I had 67 out, which let the hammer and mag release come out, but the sear and spring didn't come out. Think I'll forget it, it was a pain getting the hammer aligned and back in.

The spring is very secure and cannot be pried out.There is a shallow milled recess in the frame that the sear spring rests in and prevents side to side movement.. There is also a lip on the bottom of the sear spring that fits into a slot..this lip locks the spring into place, preventing any movement length wise.. The spring is held in place with a pin that extends from one side of the frame to the other. This pin must be removed to remove the spring.

Thank you very much Jerry! I'm glad I didn't try and force anything.
