Howdy Boys :)

I'm very curious about trigger pull variances for the M and S Series Steyrs. For those with a trigger pull guage or some other way of accurately measuring their trigger pull, please post your results here. And, please be as accurate as you can. I'm not interested in hearing, "...oh 4-8 bs....". I'm talkin', "4.2 lbs" or "3.8 lbs", that kind of accuracy. I'll post mine tomorrow, when I get a guage that works. :oops: And, if someone will offer a simple and exact method for determining trigger pull, short of actually having a trigger pull guage, plz step up to the plate and post that info, ASAP. Thanx.

All these have had the polishing and spring tweaks done and do feel much better than when fresh out of the box. And hope to have continued improvements from tweaks offered by BT and you all on this site.
Measurements using Lyman electronic trigger gauge, average of 10 measurements.

S9 avg 7 lbs 8 oz, high 8 lbs 5 oz, low 6 lbs 5 oz.
M9 avg 6 lbs 1.5 oz, high 7 lbs 2 oz, low 5 lbs 7 oz.
M357 avg 6 lbs 7.5 oz, high 7 lbs 3 oz, low 5 lbs 13 oz

mine was just over 8, measured with weights. Its at SAI now getting a reduction.
Please post results when you get it back fom SAI and find out what they did if the trigger pull is reduced. When I asked about the heavy OTC trigger pull at the old service center, Dennis said that they would try replacing fcg parts to try to reduce the pull. Didn't seem to be worth the FedEx shipping and wait at the time. Thanks.
Thanks RC. I wonder how much do the FP springs vary and if SAI haveFP springs of different weights.

I measure the trigger pull with the back end of the slide and grip sitting on the edge of the bench (muzzle pointing up) and pulling down on the trigger with the gauge. To make it easier and safer, magazine out, no ammo in sight. Rack the slide all the way back each time to cock. My Steyr triggers do have quite a bit of vairation in the pull weight and creep and I can feel it during dry fire. The nice clean breaks usually feel lighter than the ones that are creepy. Have already done the trigger tune in the BT tutorials and continue to tweak with lube and more polishing here and there to try and get more consistent and lighter trigger. would love to have differnt springs and fcg parts to experiment with but will have to wait until the Steyr gets more aftermarket support or Steyr offers those parts.
