Be careful what you ask for, You might get it... I sent my 8" Python back to Colt in the early 90's requesting them to smooth & lighten the trigger... I figured i'd get a slightly lightened lawyer trigger at best, So i explained in the note that it would only be used for target shooting and never for self defense or hunting... When i got it back the trigger was as smooth as silk and the pull was as light as a feather (too light IMO)... Although the gun is a joy to shoot and very accurate, I never keep it loaded on my nightstand anymore, As i don't feel comfortable with the hammer cocked and a trigger that light...

I didn't keep the hammer cocked, But when i have had to pull a revolver on someone, I instinctively cock the hammer and i wouldn't want to shoot someone by mistake!...

You need some handgun training.

BADLY.

I have a 28 I bought used and if you shoot it single action the trigger is dangerously light. Just touch and it fires. I need to have it fixed.

I have shot others' guns that had triggers so light they would go off just by touching them. Don't care for that at all.

If I ever inadvertently bought a gun that was like that and hadn't handled it before I bought it, I would certainly change it.

The mainspring tension screw at the bottom front of the grip frame on a S&W is usually the cause. Make sure it's tightened. May have to get a replacement, as some people file the end off the screw so it has their desired tension but still tighten down into the grip frame threads.

Jim I have a mountain gun 4” 44 mag that I’ve put thru the ringer and it’s been fantastic. I’m surprised to hear this of yours. Good luck with it.

Trigger rebound spring problem. They are sold with different weights. But old gunsmiths usually just cut one ring off.
If that happens you get what you get. Sometimes single action is to light. Hasbeen

That too.

I'd usually cut them off a bit at a time until I got it where I wanted it.

Stoning the machine marks where that rebound assembly runs smooth against the frame is probably more helpful in getting a smooth action.

Lots are happy with a lighter action, but don't pay attention to "smooth". You ought to be able to feel the bolt lock into the cylinder in a slow double action pull. smile

I will NEVER send anything to S&W again, the last time I did my custom 624 was stolen on its way back to me and I had to fight S&W for partial compensation.

If you want your revolver tuned, I highly recommend Ahlman's in Morristown, MN. Ahlman's pistolsmiths are at least as good as those anywhere else that I've tried, plus their prices are great and their turn around time fast. I have Ahlman's do what they call an action job to smooth and tune the action and trigger and ream the forcing cone on all of my shooter, not collector, revolvers. I recommend Ahlman's to anyone who will listen and have yet to hear from a dissatisfied customer. The last time that I looked, the action job fee was $95 and the forcing cone ream job was $40, money well spent IMO.

Who was responsible for the gun getting stolen? S&W, or the shipping company. Insured?

I had my friend Bubba show me what to smooth and what to leave alone. If you own many revolvers, you at least need to know how to clean and oil them.
I’ve got a couple that are only reliable with federal primers. Hasbeen

You haven’t given them all away yet? I do, almost as fast as I get them, since I don’t own a canoe……..🤔

S&W wheel gun?
Easiest trigger job ever!
I use Arkansas stones. Just slick up the bearing surfaces and lube slightly. Trigger pull will be slick as glass.
I NEVER trim the hammer return spring and always tighten the hammer strain screw fully.
Mess with either spring and you can throw ALL the timing off and may cause misfires.
