Question about the compatibility between parts in S&W

I have a doubt about the measures and compatibility of the triggers and hammers of the Smith & Wesson K and L frames of the sema age.

I know the main spring is the same size in K, L and N frames, and they are exchangables one and another.

Is is the same for a K and L frames triggers? or is it the same about the K and L frames hammer assembly?

Thanks in Advance

Most of those parts have to be fitted properly for safe and effective operation.

I also believe that, in a democracy, government exists because (and only so long as) individual citizens give it a 'temporary license to exist'—in exchange for a promise that it will behave itself. In a democracy, you own the government—it doesn't own you."- Frank Zappa

S&W claims the new generation revolvers with MIM parts are completely drop in. No fitting required. The older models may require minor fitting to run smooth with new parts.
