    I'm particularly interested in getting rid of the trigger slack and the lateral slack in the hammer mechanism. What is the idea behind the little plunger/spring assembly in the mechanism? That appears to account for the slack. Has anyone tried to jam it with say a piece of putty eg. or maybe a stiffer spring?

    Thanx

    Plug the plunger/spring????

    hey 280 - that little plunger/spring mechanism performs two functions: 1. Trigger return and 2. Disconnector reset. A stronger spring would only increase the felt trigger pull. Plugging it would probably make the trigger inoperable. The take-up on the trigger can be eliminated by drilling and tapping the front bottom of the face of the trigger and installing a small set screw for adjustment. This subject and a lot more kitchen table Ruger 'smithing topics are discussed in great detail at rimfirecentral.com in the "ruger other" forum and at markII.org forums. Both of these sites are dedicated to the Ruger semi-autos and have some very knowledgeable posters. Check them out.
