Mine looks exactly like that. If you don't like it, send it back or sell it.

I took the gun apart down to the trigger and smoothed off that end with file but ironically, i could not get the trigger pin out, the gate spring was just too tight... Im wondering now if they did put in wrong trigger... Its back together with lightened wolf springs and now the action is GREAT! And with smoothed off trigger made it much nicer however im just concerned on why that was so difficult to compress that gate spring to remove trigger... Which i couldnt do...

If that's the wrong trigger they have been installing it for over a year because like I stated earlier mine is just like it.

Good stuff. I don't have a Bisley like yours but my NM Vaquero gate spring was a bit tough to depress but I eventually did get the pin out. Where's da pics?!

Did you change the trigger spring as well? What spring weight did you drop it down to? I went down to a 16lb hammer spring. I think stock is 17lbs? It didn't seem to make a heck of a lot difference that I could tell. I thought about going down to 15lb or 14lb but didn't want to risk light primer strikes.

rclark will become famous soon enough
The gate spring is a little 'tricky' to compress to get it out of the notch on the trigger pin. I use a small screw driver (carefully) to compress it back from the pin... meanwhile trying to press the pin out the side.... There is probably a better way ... but so far it's worked for me.

Well i pushed pretty hard on that spring but it kept bumping into the spring so i thought ill just enjoy the spring kit i put in and when i had more time or asked more here id just enjoy what i had accomplished! I installed the 14/30 setup by Wolf and the action is buttery smooth and i can cock without loosing aim of sight on target!

Did you ever get your new spring kit in? Just curious if you liked it! I just picked up a new condition standard grip SS Vaquero (not the new Vaquero) and its a sweet gun! It has a heavier trigger and looks like it too with be lightened, howver it isnt as heavy. The new vaquero bisley felt on hammer but trigger even though nice feeling is a slight bit heavy... Still feels great!

Congrats!

Haven't picked up the 30oz spring as yet. I'm waiting for Brownells to get a couple other parts in stock before placing an order. I did buy the Wolf kit with the 14/15/16lb springs but didn't think to change the trigger spring. I have the 16lb on it now but doesn't seem a whole lot different. I'll wait till I get the 30oz trigger spring to change the hammer spring down to maybe the 14lb.

I believe the NM Vaqueros are 17lb hammer springs and the older Vaquero and BH are 23lbs?

Has anyone experience bad lock times or light primer strikes when they went to 14/30 setup?

I've had several vaqueros that had sharp edges here and there. I think it's from using the CNC tool stations to make the parts. The parts are right dimensionally; but no one goes over them to ease the sharp edges. I always take a small white (...fine...) arkansas stone and rub the offending part. It takes about as long to do as it does to type this little note. My last "repair" wuz a sharp serration on a vaquero hammer.

Brownell's has a neat little clamp that pushes that spring down, it costs about $25 and looks like it might work really well. Cheap price to pay to avoid having to forever look at a scratch on a nice pistol from fooling with that spring.
