The simplicity of the Ruger DA triggers is such that any licensed and certified smith would likely qualify as "great". Half the hobby gunsmiths on the Ruger forum would qualify as SP101 trigger experts. It doesn't take much beyond a few simple tools and a bit of common sense.I am looking for a gunsmith that really knows sp101's for trigger work. I have heard of Gemini customs and mossy creek are they among the top smiths?
What are you wanting to do with the trigger on your SP101? Replace springs? Smooth out the action just a bit? Polish or sand parts a little bit?I am looking for a gunsmith that really knows sp101's for trigger work.
Pick up a sheet of 400 wet/dry paper in case you find a surface where the stone is awkward. Paper is cheeeep! Follow instructions, go slow, test your work and you too will be another SP101 triggersmith!I just ordered some white ceramic gunsmith stones from brownells. They are extra fine grit, will this be all I need to smooth the trigger out or do I need sandpaper also?
I would suggest you try several different combinations...and see which one you like best! I prefer the 10# straight across the board...the 9# seems a bit light on the hammer strike! To each his own...plus, you'll have the experience of tearing it down and putting it back together again...several times! By the time you're finished, you'll be a master of the SP101 trigger!Should I use the #12 main spring for self defense?
