Good Day all,
A question.
If one were to look at the process of "smoothing" the action and "bobbing" the hammer of a Smith & Wesson Model 65,
(3 inch) would it make any difference if the stainless steel hammer/trigger and associated parts that comes stock with the piece
were used; as opposed to using the regular carbon parts of a Model 13? Are there any pros or cons that would prejudice
the project?
For your future input, I thank you.

Ari

Ari, Actually, the hammer and trigger are not stainless, but are flash chromed (their term). Once you cut through the chrome, you're into bare carbon steel. Most of the other internal parts are non-plated carbon steel however.

Good Morning Don,
So I therefore infer that getting new parts will essentially make no difference to a trigger smooth, hammer bobbing project.
Thank you for your courtsey and expertise.
