Determining Trigger Pull Weight (device free)

Cocking the hammer on an empty autoloader with my right thumb, and having my left index finger inserted through the trigger guard, I released the pistol with my right hand and let gravity turn it upside down counterclockwise until it was at rest on my left index finger. Then I placed my right index finger on the pistol frame (near the magazine base) and gently rotated the pistol clockwise until the trigger snapped/hammer dropped (about 90 degrees so the pistol's weight was directly on the trigger - at this point, the barrel was pointing directly to the floor and the hammer to the ceiling). So, can I assume that the maximum single action trigger pull weight is the weight of the unloaded pistol? Thanks. By the way, this happens every time I try it - SA only, naturally.
