New Model Blackhawk 45 Trigger Spring

Back in 1980 when I was an aspiring target shooter, I replaced the stock trigger spring with a much lighter one. Not sure, but I think it was a Wolf spring and also I can't remember what weight it is. It's either 2 1/2 lb or 1 1/2 lb. I am leaning more toward 1 1/2 pounds because all I have to do is put my finger on the trigger and kinda think about pulling it and it goes bang.

Well now days, that is too light of a pull for me and I would like to get it closer to the original, but maybe a little lighter. I see gunsprings.com has the Wolf springs in 30 oz and 40 oz. but I don't know how that compares to the factory spring. Does the 40 oz. equate to 2 1/2 pound pull? I know by the math, 40 oz is 2 1/2 lbs. What is the trigger pull for a stock Blackhawk?

I would like to get it to 3 1/2 or 4 lb.

Tho I can't tell you what the stock poundage is, I can tell you that it is fairly heavy. I would suggest the spring kit from Wolf. If I recall, they have several springs in the kit so you can try different weight springs until you find the one you like. I tend to use the lightest wolf springs available.

Thanks NAASilent. I couldn't find any more about the OEM trigger spring except for one YouTube video on the Single Six. It looks like they use the same trigger spring as the BlackHawk. The guy mentioned that the factory spring was probably in the 60 to 70 oz range. Since I'm pretty sure I have the 30 oz spring, I am going to order the 40 oz.

On another note, after watching the "how to" video, I don't remember taking the grip frame off when I replaced the first one, but that's what he did. I think I just captured the hammer spring and removed it, then replaced the trigger spring and put it all back together.
