If it's heavy and has a lot a creep, it will require a tune up and break-in won't fix it -- it may make it better, but it won't alleviate the problem. Why suffer through a lousy trigger??

I had put well over a thousand rounds through my Bisley Hunter before I sent it off for work and there was no real improvement.

I was also using a lighter return spring which did make the trigger lighter, but actually made the creep feel worse and more gritty. You could feel the roughness of the sear/hammer interface more with the lighter spring.

I now use the next stiffer return spring (40 oz vs 30 oz) after the work was done because it better suits me with the creep removed.

Of course! He'll work on your 100 year old Westley Richards double rifle too -- if you have one!

Jack does fantastic work and will turn it around quickly.

New Model Rugers especially have a lot of creep that has to be reduced by someone who knows how. You can't get there with shooting or dry firing.
