I wonder if it has anything to do with the coil springs in Taurus guns. In my S&Ws, the mainspring is a leaf-spring, while in my Taurus 905, the mainspring is a coil spring. I'm sure that probably doesn't make much of a difference in overall power, but I wonder if it makes a difference in how the springs compress.

I'm sure the trigger pull could be smoothed up for Tauruses as well as S&Ws, though. Probably has more to do with the engagement surfaces than the springs, though.

For some reason the triggers on the 22 revolvers are much heavier than a similar centerfire. It doesn't seem to matter if the gun is Taurus, Smith or whoever.

I find that the triggers on my 3 S&W .22 revolvers to be far lighter than the triggers on my 2 centerfire S&W revolvers and my one Taurus 9mm snubbie. This may be due to the 10-shot cylinders on the .22s, however--the cylinder only has to rotate 36° before full lockup, while my 6 shot revolvers have to rotate 60° (and my snubbie has to rotate 72°) before full lockup.

The double-action triggers for my centerfire revolvers tend to be smoother than the triggers on my rimfires (except one of my S&W 617s, which is the smoothest double-action trigger I've ever felt aside from autoloaders), most likely because the staging occurs in the full 60°, rather than compressed into the shorter 36°...

S&W trigger and trigger pulls smooth up nicely after time and trigger pulls. I have a 3" RB 65 that I have had for years and will probably take to the grave with me.

Check out the S&W forum and you'll see how extremely popular the S&W M-65 is, especially the 3" round butt model; it contains the best of all worlds...

1. The versatility of using mild to wild .38 spl or .357 rds. or shot shells.
2. The power to weight advantage of the .357 mag.
3. The accuracy & velocity of a 4 incher in a slightly more compact package.
4. The concealability of a shorter barreled round butt frame.

Dry firing will help "smooth up" the action of any quality made revolver. Switching to a lighter weight main spring helps improve the DA trigger pull a lot with out having to resort to the extra expense of an "action job" which now days can run from $100-$200.

I have 2 of the S&W m65s. They are balanced very well. I have a 4 and a 3 inch barrels. and I carry the 3 inch ccw all the time.richgp100z It is too bad Taurus doesnt make a 6 shot 3 inch m65. I am going to have to call them and tell them.
