    PT845 heavy trigger pull

    I have had this pistol for about 2 years and have about 300 rounds through it. Always thought the trigger pull was heavy but use it as a range gun and not in competition.

    Today I was at the range and someone had a trigger pull guage that used to check it. had the hammer cocked back and it measured just over 10 lbs.

    This cant be normal t have this much trigger pull?

    What can I do to lighten this trigger up.

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    PT845 heavy trigger pull

    This is way way out of spec. In single action mode, the trigger pull should be close to 4lbs (if not less). I think you might need to contact CS, ask to speak to a Tech & see what they say. My bet is they want you to send it in. I own (4) PT845's and none of them have a trigger pull like you are describing.

    what does taurus manual list as production weights on trigger?
    Taurus Is not a highly refined/polished trigger assembly so generally several hundred rounds may improve the function, 300 rounds is like a new weapon shoot it and see if it gets better.
    have you ever throughly cleaned the inside of the weapon?

    I personally don't won't to mail anybody my guns & wait any length of time without them. So I would pull it apart & find the issue, probably a burr on something..
    The 800s are fairly simple to breakdown & I would investigate what the issue is, something on the sear or other trigger mechanism part.
    Just be very careful of doing anything to the sear beyond polishing the surface.
