first off, i want to thank Iowegan for sending me a copy of his Ibok, i greatly appreciate it sir. i have a few s & w revolvers and a couple weeks ago, i fired a gp100 for the first time ( it was a friends gp100 at the pistol range). as soon as i held it i said to myself, wow, this fits really nicely in my hands and it feels great! and after firing a few shots of .357 and .38s out of it i was even more impressed with it. i then thought to myself, i have got to get me one of these! and a few days later, i sold one of my smiths, and bought a slightly used one, and i am seriusly considering getting a few more in the near future.. and a security six also. anyways, i received a copy of Iowegans Ibok and polished and cleaned up the inside action and evrything.. it has a very smooth trigger pull, but i am hoping to get it a little lighter, just a little because i like shooting double actionn alot. i just received the wilson combat spring kit in the mail the other day, and i installed the 12# hammer spring. oddly, it has the same trigger pull weight as my factory spring which is 14 lbs. MY question is.. will the wilson combat hammer spring lighten up a bit in time with usage? or should i have gotten the Wolf spring instead? any feedback would be greatly appreciated, thanks, Tim

tcinpa07, Before you get all thrilled, try the gun in DA to make sure you get positive primer ignition. Sometimes lighter hammer springs produce light hits (click - no bang).

Spring ratings are typically +or- 10%. You could have a 14 lb spring with an actual pull of 12.6 lb and a spring rated at 12 lb could be as high as 13.2 lb. As you can see, the rating doesn't always mean a replacement spring is going to be lighter.
