    So, I have a pair of Ruger Vaqueros with triggers that could use some improvement. I was thinking about buying the Power Custom Ruger trigger, the one that includes a new hammer and adds a half cock notch. But, I have two guns, and will probably get more, so I was considering doing the trigger job myself with the Power Custom stoning fixture.

    Is there a reason why either of these choices would be better than the other? Learn how to do the trigger job and getting the fixture seems to be more economical, but perhaps there's something I'm not seeing about buying the trigger and hammer set.

    I figure this would be a great place for illumination.

    I would suggest you start out with a Wolff spring kit and some moly or Gun-Slick graphite grease on the hammer notch & trigger tip.

    All the stoning in the world won't help pull weight with the Ruger bumper jack springs still in it.

    You might be surprised what a reduced power spring kit will do for just pocket change!

    If that isn't enough, then buy the sear & hammer jigs.

    Rcmodel, I did exactly what you recommended to my Super Redhawk and GP100 and I have to admit the Wolff springs was the best. I did stone lightly with fine India stone all the rough spots on the trigger etc. Used a little moly grease and voila!! very nice trigger in both double and single. Now I have done a few for friends from the range after they shot my GP100's new trigger job. Total cost = $20 including grease. Worked great.
