I would like to shorten the trigger take-up in my P89DC. Any ideas? I'm gonna take it apart & check it out. Maby it can't be done.

I've been asked this question many times. The trigger needs the full length of travel to operate in DA. A very slight amount of excess trigger travel can be felt in DA but it is needed to reset for the next round. Unfortunately, that has a big influence on SA trigger travel. This is not unique just to Ruger P-guns. All DA/SA semi-autos tend to have a lot of trigger travel in SA. There's really nothing you can do about it but practice and get used to it.

Thank's, Iowegan. I took the P89 apart & can see that there isn't much I can doo to shorten the trigger pull. While I had it apart I polished most of the trigger related parts & found that this helped smooth out the trigger action a little. The pull is still the same but I can feel the reset a little better.

The one thing that is hard for me to adjust to on my P95 is the takeup in SA. On my S&Ws, when I let the trigger out to reset there is not take up from there. On my Ruger, when I let it out to reset, there is a bit of take up which is actually kind of odd. I do wish there was a way to get rid of it.

I cant' really find a way to reduce trigger take-up. BUT! I have been busy fileing & polishing the trigger part's on several P-Series Rugers. It's amazing how much a little work on one of these firearms will make such a difference in how they work!

Do you have any pictures of steps you are taking?

i swapped out my p89 trigger for a p95 trigger, took some fitting and polishing but it worked and shortened things up because the p95 trigger has he shelf that keeps it from moving all the way foreward, i never had any problems with it, always reset just fine, it did feel weird and reshaping the trigger will prolly improve it more, it didnt quite feel right to me.

the parts cheap and if you dont like it you can drop your old one back in.

Looking forward to the pics. Saw something on this (trigger swap) on the other forum. I'd like to do this to my P90. I don't like the straight trigger in d/a.

I must be getting senile. Just remembered - I printed off those pictures you were talking about. I have copies at work. You must post under a different name on trf. Thanks, Tom

Looks like the pictures were from TruthNotRelative. Sorry about you problems at the other place. Hope I'm not one of the wrong ones!

I bought a Wolf spring kit for the P89 this week. I'll take it apart this morning & install the new springs. I'll get some pictures while I'm doing that & get them posted.
