Default Recommend me a decent Trigger Pull Gauge.

I am in the market for a decent Trigger Pull Gauge. Anything you calgunners recommend?

I am also ordering a 1911 extractor adjusting tool and extractor tension gauges. So a nice quality Trigger Pull gauge would come in handy for the tool box.

Thanks

Your 1911 comes with an extractor adjustment tool. Remove extractor from channel, flip it around and reinsert it about 1/2". Bend it. Flip it back around, reinsert, test for function.

what he said.

also, for a trigger pull gauge, i make a little thing with two pieces of wood and a screw. i sit that on a kitchen scale and push the trigger down on the screw until it clicks, watching the scale the whole time. works ok. how often do you really need to do it anyway?

I was looking at the Lyman Gauge = 57$ Shipped. I almost bought one, after reading the reviews looks like it may be a hit or miss.
