Tips for smoothing or improving the feel of the Ruger Super Redhawk trigger?

I love the Super Redhawk but I feel that the trigger could be improved. What recommendations do you have for do so? Polishing internals? Replacing springs? Other?

Polishing, followed by springs. The trigger is essentially the same as the GP100, and there's quite a bit of info on tuning that. A thorough disassembly, cleaning, and lubrication will often improve a new Ruger revolver action, as there can be manufacturing crud and cheap oil in the action.

I like to disassemble the gun and clean it thoroughly followed by around 1000 dry fires followed by about 200 rounds. After that the trigger will feel totally different than when it was new. If your not happy with it after that then polishing and a spring kit.

The first step is to shoot it for a while. Ruger revolvers seem to improve with use quite a bit.

Another vote for lots of shooting and dry fire.
I put Wolf springs in as well, big improvement.
Have not polished yet but I will.

May want to visit this link:

Ruger SP101 Trigger Job Guide

The SP101 is very similar to the SRH. Adding shims will make a difference also:

Shimmin a GP100s trigger & hammer.

Lance Shively offers these at:

I put springs and shims in my SP101 and Gp100. Not terribly hard to do and amazing improvement in trigger pull.
