I picked up a new 75B Omega last week and, while the pistol seems wonderful in many ways, the trigger is not. The SA pull is light, certainly, but "light" is the lesser characteristic of a good trigger, and "crisp" it is NOT.
The DA pull really can't be described in terms anyone should use in polite company.
Today I spent part of this afternoon learning to detail strip the Omega trigger system. Really pretty simple, actually.
After polishing everything that rubs and very carefully truing the sear and hammer engagement faces with fine honing stones, I've managed to reduce the snags of the SA pull, probably by half. However, it is still a LOOoooong, creepy pull. Once the sear starts to move I measure approximately another 3/16" of trigger movement as the sear drags up the face of the hammer hook. There doesn't seem to be any camming -- as far as my eyes can see the engagement is dead neutral.
It would appear (to my layman's view) that the hammer hook could be lowered by 1/2 to 2/3 and still be safe -- but I'm not going to ruin my parts (or endanger myself) by trying that.
I've searched here and can't find any descriptions of a home brew trigger job for the Omegas so I assume that little can be done.
As for the DA pull, wow. That's bad. I shoot a S&W N-frame a lot in competition and I thought I was pretty competent with a DA pull. This is unmanageable. Stagey and HEAVY. Got to be considerably over 15 lbs. I know the conventional wisdom would indicate a lighter mainspring, but I hate to do that for reliability and because I don't want the SA pull any lighter at all.
Any thoughts? Is Angus working on these at all?
(By the way... I went with the Omega system 90% in order to get the upswept beavertail. It feels like a night-and-day difference, compared to the standard 75B frame.)
