- Trigger Job
A process of lightening and otherwise improving trigger pull by means of polishing and reshaping the engagement surfaces. Can be dangerous unless performed by a qualified gunsmith. A trigger job usually involves polishing, and in some cases squaring off the engagement surfaces of the sear and hammer, along with other surfaces that are involved in the action of pulling the trigger in order to smooth it up.
This is usually done by a gunsmith because they have the proper tools and know which areas need to be touched up as well as having the knowledge as to how much to remove without making the gun unsafe.
