    Hi everyone,

    Just a quick question - Can anyone tell me what is a good quality trigger pull gauge and where I can find one?

    I am looking for one just for my handguns (I don't know if there is a different one for rifle or not).

    Anyway if one of you could steer me in the right direction I would be greatfull.

    Alan

    This one's good for a non-digital.

    I have a Wheeler gauge as posted. simple and works great. it is pretty consistent. not sure how accurate it is since I do not have anything to compare it to. if you are looking for a digital gauge, the Lyman digital gauge is good for the money.

    I have a Lyman digital scale that I've been quite happy with.

    I always wondered if the fish scale would work. Nice!

    RCBS makes a non digital thats looks almost the same as the one posted above. I have been using mine for a decade or more and its still pretty accurate when compared to the digital one my armory has which cost 5x as much...
