I have a S&W 610, the SA trigger is sweet but the DA is heavy with a long pull. I'm thinking about getting a trigger job on it, can I set it to 4 lbs? Can I shorten the trigger travel? how much would this work cost in L.A. area? thanks

I don't think you can shorten the trigger travel, as that is a function of the size of the trigger, itself. You can, however, reduce the pull weight. I don't know how much it would cost, but the only shop that I would trust, is Bain and Davis, in San Gabriel. Kings could also do a great job,but they are not accepting any new work, at this time.

Cheapest way to improve your S&W's trigger is to buy some snap caps (dummy rounds) and dry fire it a couple thousand times.

I would encourage folks with nice S&W wheelguns to have a real wheelgun smith work on 'em.

I've heard of home gunsmithing trigger jobs resulting in light primer strikes.

I had Bolsa Gunsmithing do my S&W trigger jobs in the past. They're in Westminster.

A 4lb DA pull is a bit unrealistic. Can it be done? Maybe. But you'll be getting light strikes. The lightest reliable pull I've gotten is around 7lbs-ish in DA mode.

For best (cheapest) results, get a WOlff reduced power 'power rib' spring kit. Install with the softest return spring, and you're done.
I can install springs in the L.A. area for the price of a box of ammo if you can't find a smith (done in your presence while U wait- I have no FFL). I've done over 20 S&W revolvers for buddies and myself already- easy job. Make usr eyou use hollow ground screwdriver bits if you do it yourself or you WILL bugger the screws.

Don`t forget the tooth paste smeered inside.

This is the way to go. If you are still unhappy afterwards, send it to Randy Lee at Apex.

edit- Whoops, Just saw that you are looking for someone in L.A., he is up north.

thanks for all your inputs, i'll try the dry fire method and look into the wolf springs. if all else fails i'll try a gun smith.
