I just bought a S&W 19-4 w/4 barrel. Gun had a real sweet trigger but was very dirty and leaded up so I disassembled for a good cleaning.
To my suprise when I pulled the side plate I found that the lockworks has ballbearing in it. No wonder it had a sweet trigger even with old hard grease.

Question, who did this type of trigger work, can't find anyone one on the internet or any mention of this ever done, it had to be a pricey project.

Thanks for any info provided.

I should clairify a little, the balls are imbeded in the sides of the trigger and hammer, then hardened inserts are pressed into sideplates for the pivots to fit into. Don't know if I can post clear pics but will work on that soon.

Wow, that's unusual. I have no idea, but if you can post photos, it will help illustrate explanation our betters give - Old Fuff, rcmodel, or others here.

This needs to have very good pictures, no fuzzy cell pics either.

Cylinder & Slide made a roller bearing kit. If I recall correctly, the roller was on the trigger, replacing the sear. This conversion rendered the weapon double-action-only.

There were, and may still be gunsmiths who performed other such conversions. Cylinder & Slide is still in business, but have not offered the roller-bearing kit in quite a while.

OK, I just read the bottom of the original post. Your sixgun seems not to have the C&S roller-bearing conversion.

Agreed. That sounds quite interesting.
