Need S&W Revolver Springs

Post by Tim:H11 on Sun Mar 12, 2017 8:43 pm

Alright, I have a Smith and Wesson Model 14-3 and I never gave the trigger poundage a thought because I was gonna shoot it double action during the sustained fire portion. I had my trigger pull gauge handy and checked it. Just nearly 2 pounds! I had a 14 pound trigger rebound spring in it and switched to a 15 pound. Nearly 2.5 pounds so not good enough. 16 pounds and it's 2.5 on the dot! But I fear with a NRA weight test it may not pass. Too close to the edge to be a passing weight. 

Problem is... WHERE CAN I FIND A HEAVIER SPRING?

Thanks but unless I missed it they do not have an 18 pound spring option. That's what I'm looking for. All the springs I have are from them and are reduced power. I think I need a factory weight spring (18 pounds).

I think you need to try another trigger pull gage...

I say that having checked a 14-2, 14-7, 10-6 PPC gun.
All have SA triggers 2#15oz to 3# 1oz.

Would you happen to know if you are using a stock 18 pound trigger rebound spring in those guns or are you using reduced poundage springs?

When was the last time you checked that instrument for accuracy?  I have a 2.5 and a 5lb barbell weight that I took to the local grocery store and the meat market scale is digital to the .1 of a oz and checked by the state.  I also have a 1.5 pound fishinf weight I had checked.  They didn't weigh what they were marked but they are now marked to a tenth of a ounce.  I can now check my scales and my new Lymans digital id off and reads 1oz heavy at 2lbs.  I worked in a Navy cal lab for 12 years.  I had the same problem you have I was just to light by a ounce on my mark III with the VQ trigger assy.  Don

Do you have a reduced power mainspring/power rib in the revolver? I would put the regular  back in before trying for extra power rebound spring.

To a point, the mainspring will not contribute to the SA pull.

You can back it out to barely break the sear and still pull 3#.

I'm using stock mainspring and 16 pound trigger rebound spring. I have an RCBS spring loaded trigger pull gauge.

In a pinch I have weighed out bullet heads and placed them in a zip lok baggie using a bent wire coat hanger to weigh my triggers.
If you can lift it off the table you are good.
Never trusted those pull type fish scales.

I made a set of weights. I made another set for someone that asked for it then totally forgot who asked. Oh well. Anyhow these are pretty easy to make.

Trigger scale aside - thank you by the way - where can I find an 18 pound spring?

Just came in from the shop looking through my" K" frame drawer.
Normally if I sell a revolver I will put the factory spring back in.
Just so happens I have exactly one used factory 18# J,K,L,N revolver rebound spring.
It is in a Wolff 13# re stapled package with my hand written "factory 18#" on it.
I have no need for it cause all of my revolvers that I have replaced the rebound spring in with reduced power have always lifted 2.5#
It is my minimum for carry/defense and of course NRA rules.

If you want it, PM me your shipping address.
I will get it out this week sometime.
