    OK JimmyA I have a trigger pull gauge that measures the force required to pull a trigger through its full travel. This trigger has what is called a stacking problem. As you near the end of the pull...

    Will wonders never cease? My gun arrived at Taurus on 8-1-19. FedEx just handed me my repaired gun at 5:00PM local today. A five day turn around counting shipping! They must have fixed it the day it...

    2" groups at 7 yards would be 4-4.5" at 15 yards but you are doing it offhand. It would be interesting to see your results from a bench rest. Unless you are a Master class bullseye shooter your...

    Well I guess it would not hurt to call Taurus. I bought the gun on 03/20/19 so it is still under warranty. The worst they can say is no and send it back still broken.
  19. Here is a new problem for y'all to mull over.

    Back on 4-28-19 I posted a question about trigger stacking. Got no replies. My 7 pound trigger would go to 10-12 even 14 pounds in the last 1/16" of travel. I made several tries to fix it with little...

    The trigger on my gun is ok except it stacks badly just before let off. Trigger pull is 7 lbs for most of the pull but the last 1/16 of a inch it gets very heavy. It is not consistent, sometimes it...

    1.I did not know Levi was anti gun.
    2. Levi's have a deeper back pocket than the Wranglers I wore for the last 40 years. They hide the gun better.
