I would really love to get the trigger all done up on my 4in GP100. Anyone have a place that is affordable for a good DA trigger job?

If you are mechanically inclined and want to save some bucks look into Iowegan's gun guide to the GP100.

I have the predecessor to this, the IBOK. It s an excellent tutorial on how revolvers and the GP100 works, and on how to do a trigger job.

Not only will you have a trigger job, you will understand how the GP100 works.

If you have not done it already, dry fire the snot out of your Ruger as well as shoot it. It works wonders. Also you can get spring kits from Wolfe and lighten the trigger a bit.

Its been my experience with both Rugers and Smiths that shooting and dryfiring are the simplest and cheapest way to improve your trigger. Also if you shoot the gun DA only you will build up your trigger finger.

Another trick, for the SA pull, apply forward pressure on the hammer as you pull the trigger. do this a few times.

Just a spring kit is usually all that is needed.

Until you find a place, here's some amplification on RON's good advice:

I didn't lift the spring on mine, I just did the dry firing and the "marrying" of the trigger. The improvement was immediately noticable. It's become my favorite gun I own. Sorry about not actually answering your specific question.

Excellent advice, provided you have the patience to do the work. It involves taking every single piece of the gun apart, doing some filing and polishing where directed, and then putting it all back together. (It's not as hard as it may sound.) I did my own trigger job on a 6" GP100 and am well pleased with the results. Both the DA and SA trigger pulls are very smooth, so it is now one of my favorite guns.

The IBOK is a great source of DIY info.

I have done a few GP100's with a 12lb Wolf hammer spring and a 10lb return spring, along with the general clean up it has resulted in a big improvement and no miss fires. You can use lighter springs if your not concerned about hard primers and an occasional misfire.
