Trigger Pull on GP-100s

Found my Lyman electronic trigger pull gauge! On the out-of-the-box GP-100 Match Champion, the double action trigger is 7 pounds 1 ounces. The SA pull is 4 pounds 1 ounce. The Lyman gauge is kinda futzy and sensitive to how its held, and I did my best to eliminate the human error. By way of comparison, my custom GP-100 from Cylinder and Slide runs about 5 pounds, maybe an ounce or two more on the DA pull. The Match Champion has no grit and is very smooth...the C&S gun is...perfect.

The Match Champion has been both dry-fired and shot (all DA) A LOT, and the trigger pull has gotten better and better. The C&S gun is just back from the shop and doesn't have a round through it. I would anticipate the DA trigger pull "settling" in the mid-high 4 lb range by the time I get it to the IRCs.

I've never been a huge fan of the GP revolvers, but the custom work by C&S is a real game changer. I'd love to know how that trigger feels in person. I'm considering the purchase of an SP101, and will send it to C&S if I buy it

Why not simply get yourself a used Dan Wesson? For the cost of a new GP100 & an action job, you could have a DW Model 15 and be done with it.

Many thanks, Michael, I had asked for this, and I really appreciate your taking the time to provide this kind of information on the trigger pulls.

Michael, do you think by the dry fire you are doing to help your self get familiar with the GP trigger would also help with a Sig DA/SA. I've got about 20,000 rounds through my Sigs. I've worked on the DA pull quite a bit and have just never really liked it.

I'm not saying I can't make the shots. However, it eats a little at my confidence. Sigs are my favorite just becuase the way they fit in my hand. I've started to transition to Glocks for a more consistent trigger pull.

Sheepdog, I had my P220 trigger worked on when Robar refinished the slide and internals. (NP3)
That trigger is so good, all my other Sigs are lame in comparison...and my round count with my 226 is similar to yours.
That one is next!! :)
