    I saw an older post on doing a trigger job on a security-six. Are there any pics on where to polish? Thanks... I already put the trigger spring and the GP100 11# hammer spring.

    It may be worth looking on you tube for a video step by step.

    Umm, changing out the springs is not a "trigger job". It will make the pull somewhat lighter but will not remove the creep. It will increase the lock time (make the hammer fall slower). It won't help if the gun has a "mushy" trigger. To do an actual "trigger job" the engagement surfaces of the hammer and sear will need to be cleaned up and polished and possibly reducing the depth of the hammer notch. The problem there is if you go a little too far and trash the hammer or sear Ruger will not sell those parts to consumers. Which is probably wise and prudent on their part considering how many guys think that a trigger job is a no brainer. But if you think it makes the trigger feel better go for it. But please understand that it's not really a "trigger job". If you start "polishing" parts be very careful because it's very easy to change angles or dimensions enough to ruin the action. The best way to deal with a Ruger is to completely deburr the inside of the frame and all of the spring tunnels and guides. Ruger usually leaves a lot of boogers in there. Beyond that you need stoning jigs and some amount of skill to stay out of trouble.
