You can experiment with rebound springs to lighten your DA. I bought the pack with various weights and ended up using the 14#. I've never messed with a main spring but if you keep researching, especially on the S&W forums, you'll find some good info.

Wolff

I have put Wolff competition springs in four of my S&W revolvers with good results. I have replaced the main springs and rebound springs. In all but one I used the lightest rebound spring that comes with the kit. In two of the four it was a simple drop in process with no light hits on any of my factory or reloaded loads. On two of my revolvers I got light hits on about half of my factory loads and reloads. So I researched and ended up buying set screws to replace the main spring screws so I could get more tension on the main spring. I then adjusted the set screw as necessary until I wasn't getting light hits. I bought the set screws at Ace Hardware. I forget the size but be sure to get the long ones so you can have maximum adjustment. Once the set screws are where you want them put some blue thread lock on the set screw.

I would put in the lightest rebound spring and see how it felt under rapid DA dry firing. On one of my revolvers the light rebound spring seemed to cause the "reset to not quite reset" so I put in the next higher spring and it felt good. Once I had these in there was no comparison to a factory trigger. The factory triggers were off scale on my trigger gauge (I am guessing 14 lbs plus in DA). After the Wolff springs and adjustments they measure around 8 to 9 lbs and feel much better.

hmmmm, you did say distinguished. I'm pretty certain replacing the strain screw with set screws won't past muster with an official if spotted. of course, YMMV

well, although they have relaxed the PPC distinguished revolver rules over the years, there is still this to consider..

3.18Equipment in General:
All devices or equipment that may facilitate shooting and are not mentioned in these Rules, or are contrary to the spirit of these Rules and Regulations, are forbidden. The Tournament Director, Referee, Three Member Jury Chairman, or Tournament Supervisor shall have the right to examine a competitor’s equipment or apparel. The responsibility shall be upon the competitor to submit questionable equipment and apparel for official inspection and approval in sufficient time prior to the beginning of a Tournament so that it will not inconvenience either the competitor or the official.

We all have to submit our distinguished guns before the match to have the triggers weighed and other than that nobody makes too much issue about the equipment

Well I think it would be hard for anyone to argue that replacing a screw with a like screw violates the spirit of the rules. Especially when that type of work is specifically mentioned in the rules as being allowed and the trigger pull weight is within specs.

Dennis Willing, former PPC and current NRA Competition's Director, feels it would be an an external modification and not be allowed.

Just checked in with our referee in chief here in Canada and he says I would be fine with an action job and new springs

Really? I would love to hear from him here on the board about this. This honestly makes me want to quit the game.

Really? that thin skinned?

The premise of Distinguished Revolver was ,excluding several permissable items, to maintain the firearm as stock as possible, not to turn it into a gamer's gun race.

Since you will have your grips covering the offending part it's probably a non-issue anyway.

The action job is called a distinguished tune and the work it to specifically keep the gun within the parameters of the distinguished program. It doesn't violate any rules and as I mentioned before our referee in chief has no issues with it
Everyone shooting distinguished here has had this or something similar done to their distinguished guns but the gun still meets standard
Hope this clears the air here

kris, your confusing my posts. nothing wrong with that. the issue is replacing the factory mainspring strain screw with a non-factory set screw. that's the issue. clearly you can have a trigger job done, but, You cannot replace factory parts with non-factory parts....
