Ruger trigger jobs?

I've seen this discussed, but haven't been able to find any real informative sites. I have a kgp-161, and am wondering exactly how a trigger job would be achieved. Any good references?

Google "Ruger action job". There are a few how-tos.

Yeah, I've seen the google results, didn't know if anyone had a good idea of kits/companies they have worked with. I have a bit more faith and trust in the members here, rather than other sites.

Easy as pie. You will need a spring kit and a set of hard arkasas stones. Both available from MidwayUSA. Butter, pure butter afterward.

Springs are simple to install and the critical surfaces contacting each other need a little stoning to smooth things out. Here is a good tutorial.

I used a Wolff spring kit.

Carry a gun you can fight with. Anything else is putting you in a postion of loose.

The spring kit from Brownells makes a pretty big difference and is cheap and easy. I've done it on several of my Ruger revolvers and have been really pleased.

Try changing springs first. New hard parts are made of unobtainium.

Pretty much the same as what I did, incl wolff springs.

How do you feel the overall job did in comparison to the factory? I can out run the trigger but I'm so used to running my M&P that it may be the reason. I have this trouble now and it may have nothing to do with the trigger work, but switching back and forth. Just the difference in the semi ver double action triggers. All that aside, butter is better, WAY better than stock.
