Sweeter LDA pull?




Does any one know if smoothing up and making the travel shorter on the LDA is really possible? I have herd about tweaking done to the LDA by RL and would like to try it on my C6.45..

You can't shorten the take-up because it has to move the hammer back. But, the trigger break can definitely be lightened and smoothed. I believe the resident LDA expert is Jay Krauter (hope I spelled his name right). He is a factory service smith for LDA guns and really knows his stuff.

He sure is and did a heck of a job on my LDA. He smoothed the trigger and action up on mine, but said you can't shorten the trigger travel. The LDA trigger has to travel a 1/4 of an inch.

I have a friend who has worked extensively on his LDA 18.9 and has managed to make the trigger pull about 2-3lbs of pressure. I didn't like it that light, mine breaks at about 4.3 lbs and its perfect. He said all he did was some polishing.

Send yours to Jay, you won't regret it.
