Re: Trigger on T/C encore
Don't send it to Belm.
Or, if you do...before you do call him up and ask him if he is going to install one of his 51-lb pull hammer springs on the trigger job.
Yes...a fifty-one pound hammer spring. The darn spring will almost rip the skin off of your thumb when you got to pull the hammer back. And if you like to use your hammer in the offset position....forget it. Not with this hammer spring...unless your thumb is on steroids, you'll never get the hammer back.
Just call the guy first and ask him if he is going to install that spring. It's a simple "yes" or "no" answer that you need.
Now....he's going to tell you bla, bla, bla, bla. But here's the real truth. His trigger job's will not get to 3-lbs unless he installs these ridiculous hammer springs. If he leaves the factory springs in, or installs lighter ones (like the 42# or something like that which he has been promising he would get for 2 years....and never did) then your Encore will have a dangerous trigger.
Your trigger will simply go off whenever it wants to. That's why he installs these monster springs.
I had a trigger job done by Belm and after about 2 months couldn't stand it any longer. I called him and he said something to the effect that they are the best and thousands of people have 'em.
Well...I don't any longer. I sent mine to T\C and they did one. My trigger is a wonderful 3.5lb. I can use my offset hammer, and my hammer spring is FACTORY!!!
If you want my opinion....put up with it until T\C gets their factory shop back up. But if you go to Belm, you tossing money down the sewer.
