    Trigger job

    I have a Ruger Red Hawk desperately in need of a trigger job. Has anyone used Magnaport for this or any recommendations?

    Doug Jones, Gunsmith in Rochester Hills does excellent work at very fair prices. He is my go to gunsmith for most everything.

    As above..Doug's been my go-to for quite a few years. He has done several triggers for me & I was very satisfied with his work.
    Did a trigger on an AR for me, & I've since bought several brands of "drop-in" triggers, and consider the one Doug did as my favorite.
    His cost for my AR trigger was lower than any of the drop In's I've tried, which would include at least a half dozen different brands.

    They do a good job on Pistols. (Magnaport).

    What's the reason? Better DA? or over all? Just asking.

    Magnaport, doing revolver work and muzzle porting was their bread n butter, when Larry Kelly first stated out. He was a very big handgun hunter and has taken most big game around the world with a Revolver handgun. They were hanging in the lobby, in the past.

    " Rugers are a very easy DIY project. "

    Read this & remember noticing in the past (on more than 1 gunsmith's fee schedule ) that there is a higher charge
    to perform a trigger job on a Ruger than what is charged for a S&W or Colt.

    I think the Ruger trigger takes more time... a lot of small surface polishing. But, a set of springs, some patience, and a lot of careful polishing of contact surfaces and you end up with an excellent trigger.

    I did a couple of GP100's for myself, a Redhawk for a co-worker, and an SP101 for a young lady friend. She took her gun to a couple classes and I ended up being asked to do triggers for a couple police officers from that same class.
    Ruger is a simple design, but a lot of contact surfaces that require polishing.
    S&W is a simpler design, more refined right out of the box, less labor intensive, but requires more skill (easy to jack up the sear if you are ham fisted) and a couple specialized tools. I don't think you can ever get a truly great trigger on a Ruger, but you can get light and smooth. The S&W in skilled hands becomes amazing.

    Just the non-professional opinions of a garage hack, and worth exactly what ya paid for 'em!
