Smith and Wesson Model 586 Double Action Revolver Tuning


The objective of the Smith and Wesson model 586 double action revolver turning job is to eliminate as much friction as possible.  1776 Gunsmithing LLC of Naples, FL does this with a number of different polishing tools ranging from files to stones and wheels.  

The trigger pull from the factory is very heavy and gritty, usually somewhere in the neighborhood of 12 or 13 pounds in double action, and 4 or 5 pounds in single action. Our objective with every gun is to drop it to 8 pounds in double action and 3 pounds in single action. This is a great pull weight for carry as well as target shooting. We thoroughly test fire each gun after our work to ensure that we do not have any issues firing before it is given back to the customer.

Parts of the firearm that we polish or radius

Trigger, sear, hand, hammer, Cylinder stop or bolt, Rebound slide and Spring, rebound slide strut, Hammer block/ transfer bar, yoke / crane, inside

Depending on the purpose for the firearm, we can replace the main spring and trigger return spring for an aftermarket mainspring and after market trigger return spring.  The cost is $100.00 with additional charges for aftermarket springs (usually an additional $15).

Let us enhance your Glock Trigger Guard

Recently we had a customer come in with a band aid on his middle finger. When we asked what had happened he explained to us how he loved to shoot his Glock 19 but that after a few rounds the factory trigger guard would work its way into the flesh of his middle finger.

While we are not doctors and could do nothing about the current condition of his finger, we could and did fix the source of the problem.

We enhanced the trigger guard on his Glock by smoothing out and polishing the underside where his finger rested. Now, he can shoot it without the need for band aids.

Bring your Glock in and allow us to enhance your trigger guard so that you can better enjoy your shooting experience.
