Recommendations for Gunsmith S&W 41



Log in to see fewer ads
Looking for recommendations for a good gunsmith to do a trigger job on my S&W model 41 pc. This gun has a 4# to 5# pull right of the box, not good for bulleye shooting. Someone in PA would be nice but more important to me is a capable gunsmith where ever.
Thanks Jeff

The trigger pull level is adjustable in this gun without a full gunsmith trigger job. There is a wedge shaped device (Trigger Pull Adjustment Lever
Mfr Part: 066020000) that lives under the trigger in the frame. It contains steps that are used to vary the trigger pull.

My point is a full reshaping of the sear and hammer are probably not required to lower the trigger pull. The gun only needs to be disassembled far enough to move the Trigger Pull Adjustment Lever to a different step. I point this out because the trigger out of the box is superb unless S&W's assemblers got the Trigger Pull Adjustment Lever on the wrong step. I would not pay for a gunsmith trigger job until the Trigger Pull Adjustment Lever is adjusted to a different step. Now, either you can do it or pay a gunsmith to do it. But a full stoning and reshaping of the sear and hammer engagement surfaces should not be required (assuming S&W did not screw something up in the manufacture of the gun which today they are more likely to do based on posts here).

No....I have not done the adjustment myself (my 1990's Model 41 trigger is perfect) but there may be a video or written instructions somewhere. S&W does not reveal in their manuals how to do this job.

That said, in your case I would send it back to S&W. The weight of pull range is supposed to be 2-3 pounds. If yours is 4-5 something is wrong with your pistol.

Yes I agree if trigger is 4 or 5 pounds something is wrong send it back ! If you don’t have proper punches and are not careful you can leave a mark when you drive trigger pin out they can be tight

Of course, the pistol could be returned to the factory

disappointed with the results after going that route.
