This project was not easy because I took the trigger group completely apart, as well as the hammer.
Replacing the hammer spring was easy enough by using both of my hands for compressing it while my wife stuck a small size hex wrench into the hole.
Not my best wood work, plus it took me about 3 hours so it proved deceptively more difficult to complete them.
My fellow forumites, I'm a happy dude today because of this new spotless lever action (and my one and only), a brand spanking new Trapper in 44 mag, from my buddy that sold me the Vaquero. It's a continual quest for perfection don't you know Sorry GCP, I'm not much of a Cowboy Action shooter and I don't reload the 44 magnum.
"You’ve watched pundits and politicos debate the issue.
For Jessica, a 26-year-old in Sheridan, Illinois, shooting is a shared interest with her fiancé.
There will be the occasional 'tough' primer, too, probably just as the buck of a lifetime walks by.
I'd shoot it 'as is' for a while, it might surprise you by a) smoothing up and becoming lighter as you shoot it and b) you might find that as a field gun, the heavier pull makes more sense safety and accuracy-wise. BTW, I like the standard 240gr bullet for my reloading (I've mostly used the Hornady HP.) Seems like the gun will shoot best with the load around which it was designed by the makers, and not too many beasts will walk away from a 240 delivered at 1500 or so fps.slabsides, all of your points are dead on, thank you for sharing.
