    Came by a new Taurus P99 recently, thought the trigger pull left something to be desired, have worked on 1911s with sucess but did not wish to strip this one down and perhaps void the warranty, maybe have springs and plungers jumping out onto the carpet.

    Was showing the new toy to a buddy who is a gunsmith and he took hold, dropped the magazine, racked the slide to make sure no rounds were chambered, then with the hammer back, applied heavy thumb pressure forward to the hammer and pulled the trigger. Did this three times and

    Wow, a quicky wear in....feels good now and It did wonders, plus a little
    tad of gun grease in the sear/hammer area.. Try it....

    Poor mans polish job. What many people mistake for weight is actually roughness of the trigger. Just polishing and taking the machine marks out of the surfaces will do wonders for many triggers.

    What he did is called boosting the trigger. Not recommended for a gun that has had a true trigger job but for factory triggers it can help.
