Had my trigger pull measured

As advertised by Kimber (4.0-5.0 lbs). Stainless TLE came in at exactly 4.5lbs. Anyone else?

Wink Cool!!

Nice to know that Kimber didn't lie!!

I don't have an official trigger measurizer, but my "highly educated trigger finger" tells me that my Pro Carry II is right at a very smooth, crisp 4 lbs!!! cheer2.gifclap2.gifrockon.gif

It was pretty cool. The guy next to me had a Glock that had been smithed to 2 lbs. Definitely a range only gun.

4.27 wouldn't make me nervous; now 2.27 just might...

I have a gun (S&W 629 .44 mag) with a 2 pound trigger. I'd never carry an auto with that light of a trigger. By time you put your finger in the trigger guard, be ready for it to go off.
