Timney Trigger Scale

Chuck make me buy a Timney Trigger Scales from Midway USA, just under $40. Seems to work well and is as consistent as your ability to pull steady.

After taking five or six samples from each pistol, here are my average results.

Stainless Pro Raptor (600 rounds) 4 lb 2 oz break.

Super Carry Ultra HD (850 rounds) 3 lb 15 oz break

Custom Carry (2,600 rounds) 3 lb 14 oz break (feels lighter because it is so smooth)


Also ...

Glock G23 (???rounds) 4 lb 8 oz (this one has the Glock "minus" connector installed)

Glock G27 (???rounds) 5 lb 4 oz

I believe Glock factory spec is 5-1/2 lbs.

Gator you said you super carry custom is smoother, which I understand. My super carry custom and pro feels smoother than the rest. My question is why?

Zoomy, the SCUHD is smoother than the Raptor. My guess is the higher the round count, the smoother the internals get. Don't you think so?

I may be talking about something different than you Sir, you said trigger was smoother I thought that included when the hammer hits which is what I notice is so much smoother on the super carry guns. The hammer hits much softer on my two. Sorry for not being clear.

I concur, my friend. The Raptor is a very hard and abrupt hammer. The SC almost feels cushioned or less heavy. SC doesn't SLAM like the Raptor does.

But the feel of the trigger itself, the Custom, SC, Raptor in that order for smoothness.

Right,,,,, So what is different in the two? Why are they smoother?

Not knowing which scale to buy plus I am a dog with tools of any kind, usually I ask the gunsmith at the range if he can do it for me. But I have been thinking about buying one. Can I ask which exact model did you buy? I saw a model that works up to 25lb and one up to 10lb

Don't some guns have trigger pulls in excess of ten pounds? I thought I read that somewhere ...
