TCP Trigger Weight?

1254 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  GhostHorse
My Taurus TCP .380 has a measured trigger pull of just 4 pounds. Is this normal? I got the gun second hand and have no idea about its history. It is accurate and reliable.

It may have the Galloway 5lb hammer spring in it. I think factory is heavier.

Thanks, it has me wondering if it’s safe to carry like that.
In a proper holster I believe it is safe. A proper holster covers most of the gun and most importantly all of the trigger area so that nothing can get near the trigger while in the holster.

I don't have one, but I'm guessing it can't be any more unsafe than the LCP 2
I believe the stock trigger is heavier, perhaps even twice that figure. But it's a long, smooth pull so it's tough to judge and my finger hasn't been calibrated lately.

4# is lighter than I'd be comfortable with on a gun with no safety. The long, double action revolver like pull is the safety feature for me on the TCP. But I don't claim to represent the mainstream, and the LCP2 is exhibit A. I wouldn't own one of those if you gave it to me.
