Ruger Hawkeye, (LC 6) Hunter Trigger Spring
Installation of this spring will reduce your triggers weight
of pull by 1 to 1½
lbs. with no other changes.
In some cases just
the installation of this spring will be all that is necessary, however some shooters will require less creep, and an even lower
weight of pull, which will be dependant upon the type, and amount of tuning accomplished by your gunsmith.
I sell this spring with the understanding that it is just one
necessary portion of a complete trigger job.
None of the standard M-77 MK II based
trigger assemblies have adjustment provisions for weight of pull, or sear engagement. (this includes the Hawkeye
and LC 6 triggers).
Your triggers weight of pull will be determined, in most part, by 4 factors.
#1 Sear/Trigger engagement angle. #2 Amount of this engagement. #3 Surface finish. #4 Weight necessary to
compress the trigger spring. Easy acces is only available to one of these factors. This is the weight of pull
spring. After the barreled action has been removed from the stock, this spring can be replaced with only a pin punch.
Replacing this spring is simple, cheap, and a necessary first step.
Picture #1 is of a Power
(brand name) trigger stoning fixture. This is the best way I know of to address the other 3 factors which determine
your triggers "feel" and final weight of pull.
You can spend more money, and you can
spend more time, but the best value is still obtained by replacing the original trigger spring, and tuning the original trigger.
Picture #2 is of the Hawkeye, (LC6) trigger and its new trigger spring.
IF YOU WANT A LIGHTER TRIGGER PULL, YOU NEED A LIGHTER TRIGGER SPRING!
