Got one to install in my 638.
Used the install video which is helpful but not utterly accurate.
Only one spring flew into the next county but I retrieved it.
Install complete;not left over parts :D function chec OK.
Will live fire test in a few days.Did not measure pull before but pull now about 10lbs. and feels MUCH lighter.
P.S. I continue my trade offer of 2 rnds 9mm. for one rnd. .38Spec range ammo

Now 10#'s? Hmm, there's a trick the old seasoned revo shooters gave me for cleaning up roughness and this harder pulls issues on newer revos.

Thumb on hammer, apply pressure/reistance and double action the trigger 30-50 times. Apply plenty of resistance at first than then lighter as the numbers get around 20 times.

I've tried it on new revo's and though it may not be as good as a trigger kit, each one smoothed out nicely like one model 13 I had that had been shot 20k rounds back in the late 70's. That trigger was butter after that many loads through it. The hammer trick slicks it up pretty damned good.

I'd have thought a trigger kit would get that DA down below 10 to around 8#'s. Looking forward to the aar as well.

Brownie;Apex says 3lb. reduction so I was surprised that it showed 10Lbs. However,it DOES feel a LOT lighter.I will try your "trick".

I have replaced the springs in my Model 638. Nothing beats a GOOD professional trigger job. I have one on my Model 38, which my Lady Wife annexed years ago. Geoff Who notes you should order three
Mainspring Rod Swivel, Steel before doing a spring install.

My 442 has the Apex kit. Been trouble free for years & years. My problem is 5 rds. I frequently go bang bang click click click.
It's strictly a last ditch BUG.

Love my 638, but left it stock. If I've got that on my hand its bad. I use it as a bug as well. Normally carried to be shot as a lefty, which I'm right handed.
