Default Trigger Pull

I have a Super Redhawk, 44 mag. that I had a trigger job done on. The trigger pull is now at 3 lb. it was 5lb. The trigger has a lot of creep in it now and the gunsmith says it can't be taken out because that is the way it is made. For $80.00 I thought I would get something better. Is he correct?

I am assuming you are talking about the pull in the single action mode.

The trigger must also have enough engagement for the firearm to also operate in double action mode. If you remove too much material from the engagement angles it will not operate properly in double action.

You gotta also remember that when a gunsmith does a trigger job he is puting himself on the line if he removes too much material from the surfaces and you end up shooting someone because the triger pull was too light or didn't engage the sear enough.

I agree with Bigbulls .
The Ruger Super Redhawlk is a hunting not target pistol.
I have 1 in 454.
I agree the trigger is not the best ,but the revolver will hold up to full power loads lots longer than you or any S&W
