OK, I finished the mods. The new safety plunger didn't make a noticeable difference in trigger feel. I might have felt some difference if I'd installed it before the other pieces, but who knows?
Anyway, I went to the range and tried it out. The good news:
- I managed to re-install the rear sight in the right place on the first try--I didn't need to make any adjustments to it.
- No malfunctions of any kind, as expected
- Smoother, crisper trigger definitely improved the "shooting experience"
The bad news is that my accuracy didn't improve any. Although I managed to put a couple of rounds thru the center of the bullseye at 10 yds, my shot groups were at least as big as they were before, so I guess I'm the problem. :quirky If I were going to use this gun for competition instead of carry, I'd re-install the original trigger spring to reduce the pull weight and see if that helped. As it is, I'll just have to hope more practice will bring my CEP down to a less-shameful size.
So was it worth $65+S/H?I guess it depends on how much you dislike the stock trigger. I'd probably do it again.
