Measure Pull Weight with Lyman Electronic Trigger Pull Gauge

lyman digital electronic adjustable trigger pull weight gauge

We like Lyman’s Electronic Digital Trigger Pull Gauge, which is faster and more precise than the previous model. The latest Lyman Pull Gauge measures trigger pull weights from 1 ounce to 12 pounds with resolution of 0.1 ounces (2.8 grams). It features an adjustable, 4-position rod which retracts into the gauge body. We think that anyone running match triggers below 2.5 pounds pull weight should have a gauge like this. Among the pull gauges on the market, we think the Lyman unit offers great performance for the price. This gauge has a $67.95 MSRP, but it’s now $54.99 at Midsouth and $57.65 on Amazon.

Features: More Precise Strain Gauge | Improved Grip Shape | Adjustable Rod Lengths

Lyman’s Electronic Digital Trigger Pull Gauge is designed to be the fastest and most accurate trigger pull gauge available. State-of-the-art strain gauge technology allows for repeatable accuracy of 1/10 ounce (2.8 grams). The gauge features a large, easy-to-read LCD display and you can switch from ounces to grams with the push of a button. The gauge can also deliver a pull weight average of the last 10 readings. That’s very helpful, particularly when working with factory triggers that may not be very consistent.

The Lyman Trigger Pull Gauge features a solid, collapsible rod with four locking positions. Being able to adjust length makes it easier to use the gauge with a wide variety of firearms — pistols, rifles, and shotguns. The locking feature prevents the rod from flexing when applying pressure to the trigger. When not in use, the rod conveniently collapses into the gauge body, making the whole unit more compact. The new Trigger Pull Gauge comes in an internally-padded plastic case that can be easily stored in a drawer or on your work bench.

S&W Model 629-3 .44 Magnum with 5″ barrel, image from GunAuction.com

This week on Shooting USA John Scoutten tests three Smith & Wesson .44 Magnum revolvers. These S&W wheelguns are reviewed for the Shooting USA TV episode this Wednesday, January 25, 2023. This episode also has a Talking Tech segment explaining different types of hammer-fired handguns.

John tests the three S&W revolvers using Hornady 240gr XTP ammunition. He first tests a beefy 45-oz. model 629 stainless with 5″ barrel, then a model 629 Performance Center with short 2.6″ barrel. Lastly he tests the ultra-lightweight model 329 PD AirLight. For that black-finished AirLight wheelgun, the Barrel is actually stainless steel, but the frame is scandium alloy, and the cylinder is Titanium alloy.
