    Default Trigger pull on Ruger P89

    Is there any way to make it better? Travel seems to be measured in feet not inches. I've been looking online, haven't found anything helpful.

    I have only shot one, one time and I know what you mean. I would take BW's advice and find myself a good gunsmith and see what he could do for it. Key words are "Good Gunsmith". Good trigger pull is a must have, in a defense weapon. It's not a job for some kitchen table hack. Good luck.

    I stoned & polished the entire trigger assembly on my P89. While that didn't decrease the trigger pull, it did smooth things up quite a bit. Rember, you don't have to return the trigger all the way after your shot. just far enough to let it reset. Learn the trigger reset on your P89 (or any semi auto pistol) & your follow up shots will be much quicker. I enjoy my P89 & carry it a lot.

    Default Trigger reset

    Thanks for the info, I hadn't actually considered how far I have to release the trigger. If my ammo ever gets shipped, I'll try doing that next time at the range. (Sportsman Guide changed my ship date from mid July to October)

    Get some Snap Caps and put in a lot of dry-firing. That first DA pull is long and spongy but after that it's all good. Dry Firing will smooth it out quite a bit.

    I have had my local shop work on a lot of my Rugers triggers. Believe me when I say they can be improved drastically.

    The trigger reset is a very good point. Usually it doesn't take much forward travel to reset.

    Your pull weight is governed by the hammer spring. The stoning of the sear and hammer hooks will reduce "gritty" trigger, ease the break, but the actual pressure on everything is caused by the hammer spring. Wolffe Springs makes lighter ones, but then you may end up with light strikes on the primer. If you want to go down that road, you should try several different spring weights and see where the happy compromise is. I would also think about an over travel screw in the trigger. A good deal of the rearward motion is not doing anything once you have the sear release.

    Default Thanks for the responses

    Thanks, everybody, got lots of great info and a few options. I also inherited a P90 45 cal which I have yet to fire, I'm guessing trigger pull is similar. Getting stocked up on ammo has been next to impossible and my resolution to go to the range once a week hasn't been working out like I hoped. (gripe, complain, piss and moan). Well, I got lots of 357 ammo and a nice S&W Model 25 so life can't be bad right?

    On the Subject of Wolffe springs, They may have a factory weight spring that's less spongy than Ruger's. I know the spring they make for the K-frame revolver can be had in factory weight and has more consistent feel. I've installed one along with a reduced trigger return spring in my revolver and you can feel the difference.
    Anyone used one in the P89?

    Elvis - funny you should mention ammo shortages. For the past three months, I couldn't find ANY 22LRs or 9MM stuff locally, just spot stock at outrageous prices. Now, today, suddenly there's some stock at local gun shops. Can't wait till BIG 5 gets their stock in - I have some rain checks to cash in. Point ....maybe the shortage is easing a bit. Anyone else notice this?
