Stratton Custom trigger jobs are accomplished by squaring up the top of the sear notch on a surface grinder, hand honing the face of the sear notch to the proper angle and a giving it a smooth even finish where contact is made with the hammer. Honing and smoothing other moving parts and replacing the factory trigger spring with a custom Sc spring to achieve the desired pull weight. I also do a complete cleaning of the receiver and lubricate all internal parts. Lastly, if installed, I adjust the trigger over travel screw.
Some things to consider when choosing a pull weight. Once the trigger job is done it is not adjustable without changing out the sear and trigger spring. A 2 lb trigger pull is great for target shooting and varmint hunting in warm weather. For safety reasons, a 2 lb trigger may be too light for cold weather big game hunting where your fingers may become cold or you may wear a glove. It isn’t a pleasant experience to have your firearm discharge before you even realize you’ve touched the trigger! I would recommend a minimum of around 3 lb pull weight in those conditions.
The optimal situation would be that you have more than one frame. You can then dedicate one to target/varmint shooting and another to big game hunting with the appropriate trigger pull weights for each. If you have one frame the pull weight decision is somewhat of a compromise depending on what kind of shooting/hunting you do most of the time.
Shipping Instructions: Send just the “bare” frame, no hinge pin, stock or grip. In addition if you have a hammer spur extension installed on the hammer please remove that prior to shipping as well. I prefer Priority US Mail for shipping but either UPS or Fedx will work.
Mail to the following address: PO Box 327, Hurricane, UT 84737 or 516 S Main Street, Hurricane, Ut 84737 HINT: Don’t offer any unrequested information to the post office, UPS or Fedx as to exactly what is in the package. If asked simply state that it is “sporting goods”, “machined parts” or something similar. It isn’t illegal to ship the frame it’s just that some USPS post masters, Fedx and UPS terminal managers have different ideas about it. It isn’t a complete firearm it’s just a piece of one. Also, if you already own the frame there is no need to involve an FFL dealer. However, if you live in California check your current state laws first. I am an FFL holder should an FFL dealer be required.
Please include a note with the frame indicating the trigger pull weight you would like along with all of your contact information and anything else I should be aware of.
Note – According to the written warranty that comes with your frame, any alterations done to the frame could void the warranty. A trigger job is considered be an alteration so just be aware.
Turn around time for trigger work is running approximately 2 weeks.
