I am wondering about getting a smooth trigger for my Super Blackhawk. After decades of using the Blackhawk with a smooth trigger, I find I dislike the feel of the grooved trigger on the Super.

Will a regular Blackhawk trigger be a drop in fit for the Super? Would it have to be fitted by a smith? Does someone make a smooth trigger for the Super Bhawk?

Its a new model Super Blackhawk, not certain of the year, but made before they moved the barrel warning underneath.

You could probably put one of the latest Super Blackhawk triggers in your
gun. Ive got a new 10" barrel Super Blackhawk that I shoot in IHMSA
silhouette matches, and it has a smooth trigger. I think they have been
smooth for quite awhile, now.

You might also check around to see if someone makes a smooth trigger shoe for the existing trigger. By widening the trigger and spreading the force out over a larger area it makes the trigger pull feel lighter, even though it's not.

Yes a regulaar bh trigger will work the only difference between a lg frame bh and a sbh s the grip framei

i just read today that the blackhawk,super blackhawk,single six, bearcat and super bearcat made from 1953 to 1972 serial #s below 93-00000 have a free safety offer from ruger. Im not sure what all they do but it might get a new triger with this safety kit. So if you have a three frame screw gun i would think about that and call ruger.

Why not have a smith grind off the grooves, polish, and cold blue?

I have considered having the original trigger ground, but wanted to explore all other options.

The gun is a new Model Super Blackhawk, so the factory refit of pre 1973 models does not apply.
And the pull is already fine and light, so a trigger shoe doesn't get me anything.

I was unaware that current SuperBlackhawk triggers are smooth. Anybody know when they changed them?

Thanks for all the replies!
