DA/SA Pro .45. It gets tight right before release. Normal?MPanova said:Do you have the DAO version? If so I believe the only way to make the trigger pull lighter is to change out the firing pin spring, which may lead to light primer strikes.
Wellll, I don't have anything to actually measure the various parts of the pull.MPanova said:How tight are we talking here? They will have a little resistance right before firing, after the take you should feel it stop and from there it should be about a 4-5lb pull before it breaks like glass. Atleast thats how mine are, Mine actually feels more like a 3lb pull once you take up the slack
Thanks. Gritty? It does feel pretty rough at that point. I've cleaned everything I can without pulling the action out of the frame - repeatedly. And it has been that way since new. (Of course that doesn't prove anything.) I've been looking for soft pin punches to take it down further.MPanova said:Sounds like you may have some grit in there, you might have to take it down further then a normal field strip and clean everything out really good. If that doesnt help you might want to have a smith look at it or send it back. Have you had any other issues at all?
I got an improved pull checking device. The pull just before release was something over 8 pounds.MPanova said:Sounds like you may have some grit in there, you might have to take it down further then a normal field strip and clean everything out really good.
My Hi-Point can hit waaaaaay better than that. I thought I was moving up.Cimarron said:I can hit my paper plate at 25 yards.
You asked a question, you have been given honest answers. Heap roses... spend some time listening and you know better than that... but to simply identify a gun as "junk" because you don't like the truth is insulting to the rest of us. I suspect that this will justify your rescitation as your 24/7 as "junk" and that I regret.JimL said:Well, any forum I have ever used would chase you away or delete your messages if an evaluation post failed to heap roses on their favorite item. Maybe it's the same here, but what it seems you are telling me is that the 24/7's are junk guns that can't do better than an 8 or 10 inch grouping.
A call to Taurus got me three things. First, my first actual talking person. Second, assurance that it is impossible for the pull to be rough (farm boys know the word for that and avoid stepping in it) and, third, an assurance that the pull on my 24/7 Pro .45 is acceptable at anywhere from 4 to 7 pounds. Almost a 2 to 1 precision ratio? 8 inch groupings? I paid hundreds of bucks out of a very tight budget for a junk gun with "Pro" printed on it.
I'm talking SA and intermittent pull from below 6 pounds to more than 8 pounds. To top it off, the trigger touches the bottom of the trigger guard by the time it fires. Someone at Taurus reading answers off the computer screen told me everything was fine - as if she had shot my gun. The fact that you would tell me I'm an idiot because your gun works for you is typical of business attitudes toward customers nowadays and makes me think you work for Taurus.NativeTexan said:In the DA revolver world, a 6 lb trigger would be considered a near hair trigger.
No one called you an idiot. You are just searching for the "perfect" answer to ALL of your questions. You constantly degrade anyone who writes a post that is not to your liking. I can tell just by reading your posts (not even talking to or meeting you), that you are a person that thrives on confrontation. Please, do us all a favor and make an attempt to act civilized.JimL said:The fact that you would tell me I'm an idiot because your gun works for you is typical of business attitudes toward customers nowadays and makes me think you work for Taurus.
