Buckmark Trigger



Log in to see fewer ads
I have mid 90s Buckmark 4" Micro and I was going to flip the Spring but it has already been flipped. It has a crisp 3# pull now, Does that sound right for a Flipped Trigger ??
And do you think it would be lighter with a straight Trigger profile replacement ??

3# sounds good. The shape of the trigger itself shouldn't affect the pull weight. A properly adjusted overtravel screw often makes a big difference in the feel of the trigger.

Isn't the force needed less if you can move further from the fulcrum? I thought this is one of the justifications for flat-faced triggers. You can pull at the bottom and not in the middle, as curved triggers typically force you to do.

3 lbs. is a good trigger. Some of the newer models have 3-1/2 to 4 lbs. pull.

True. I understand that, and there could be a slight benefit. My trigger finger occupies 3/4" of the trigger. Although I do prefer flat or less curved triggers, being able to move my finger down 1/8" doesn't affect things very much.

If my finger would be a thin steel rod that could be placed at either the center or the bottom of the trigger, I'd expect the difference would be measurable.

Near the end of this video, they try to show the improvement possible by pulling "at the bottom" of a flat-faced trigger. Of course, you'd have to be able to get your finger that low on the trigger in the trigger guard. They're using an SW22 Victory, which does have a much larger trigger guard than a Buck Mark. The difference may be less dramatic on the BM due to the tighter space.

Mine is a 2003 (maybe 02, I bought it in 03 at least). Has had the spring flipped since at least 2009. Breaks at 2lbs even. I slicked up the sear hammer engagement surfaces years ago, but very very little.

My flipped Buck Mark weighs in at 2 and change. I'd say 3 is in the ballpark. As has been mentioned, try a trigger with an overtravel adjustment screw.

Try the Tandemkross Gear Box. I replaced the Hegis flipped sear spring with the Gear Box and my pull weight is 1 1/2 lbs. It took a little tweaking of the spring part that engages the sear to get it there though. I had the pull weight at 1 lb. but the trigger wouldn`t reset. I also did some polishing on the sear and hammer notch engagement surfaces. The trigger seems to have a more crisp break now.

Most of the stock ones I have had tested from 3-1/2 to 4-1/4 lbs.
Changed a few to the V trigger, some to the TK trigger and some the V hammer and trigger.
Doing the trigger or hammer change dropped the pull down at least 3/4 lb on each and at least 1 lb changing the trigger and hammer.
I am waiting for a couple TK sear spring "gear" , so I can change 2 of my all stock 4lb. trigger pull Buckmarks.
