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.
