    Been a ruger fan since I was a kid. I'm a big fan of target triggers and tight tolerances. (i know there's no place for that on a platform like this) My last tactical pistol was a p89. Loved it.

    Found an Sr40 the other day and ran a box of 165gr through it. Off a bench, it was not too bad, I guess...but shooting off hand was not so good. Sure, part of it is me, but the trigger on this thing is not what I'm used to.

    I like my triggers to be in the 4-5#range for a gun like this. I also don't like much initial travel. I don't care about over travel or reset distance because that just impedes follow-up shots. My initial accuracy was really affected by the combination of the long travel + 7.5#trigger.

    I'm going to try the ghost trigger kit and see if it helps, but I may be in the market for a p91 / 944 soon if this doesn't work out.

    I think I could deal with the weight of the trigger if it just didn't take so daggum long to break.

    Any experiences like this for you guys?

    I've got the SR40c and I'm not too crazy about the trigger either.I've never seen a gun with that much travel.

    my SR 40 has a very good trigger. i shoot it as accurately as any weapon i have ever owned. the trigger is completely stock, smooth as a babys butt and breaks clean and crisp. to get my SR9 the same way required a little work but was well worth the effort. the SR45 took a little effort and a little break in time but is now very good as well. these weapons just plain work. it took me only a very short time to get used to the trigger on this series pistol. the ergonomics and accuracy combined with the durability make them a good value in my opinion. i use these three over weapons i own that cost twice as much. clearly my favorite series from any manufacturer.

    My Ghost trigger transfer bar thing'a'ma'jig came in today. Installed it in 5-10 minutes. Much, much better.

    This is the way the gun should have rolled off the line. It has a slightly shorter pull now. Less over-travel. The pull is down from 7.5-8# to 4.5-5#. Perfect for a tactical defense pistol in my opinion.

    Not scary easy that you might accidentally discharge, but light enough to help out with accuracy.
