Shooting the 25-2

Post by orpheoet on Fri May 12, 2017 6:39 pm

I know there are a few 25-2 shooters on here. What am I missing here with that trigger! I find it very difficult to shoot double action with the wiiiiiide trigger. It's fantastic for single action....

In my opinion a wide trigger is not your friend when shooting double action. Because of the amount of travel a double action requires to shoot it like that, there are too many opportunities to screw up the squeeze because the wide trigger makes too much contact on your finger.

I'm tending to agree with you on that! I actually tried to put a narrow serrated into the gun but unfortunately the trigger(from ebay) had been fiddled with and won't index the cylinder. I'll keep an eye out for another one. In the meantime I do love the wide trigger for single action.

You might consider a smooth trigger Smile

+1 on SA only.

This was SA at Octobers Reeves match. 25-2. Pretty sure it was RF but I guess I didn't mark that down.

Was the pistol designed to be SA only for Bullseye? That wide hammer is fantastic. I think I could possibly pull off rapid fire SA on the 25-2.

The 3 "T's" (trigger, hammer, and grips) were sized to be used in either SA or DA mode.  But Jon is right in that the serrated trigger face doesn't work very well in DA.  S&W offered a smooth trigger face at least for the K series frames for PPC  and other combat disciplines.

My 14-1 came from a PPC shooter with the smooth medium width trigger. I prefer the narrow serrated but I'll try the triggers side by side as I have 2 14's. When I put the smooth trigger in I'll try moving the narrow serrated to the 25-2. Fun weekend ahead....

This seems to have worked out great. Narrow serrated trigger in all 3 revolvers. The SA on the 25-2 is just over 3 lbs. I can certainly live with it.
