Exactly!!!! Like all the guys I saw during the sniper match this year at Perry using check pads on their 1903s and return springs on their chin-ertls. Looking at their scores they needed a lot more help than a few band modifications.

I am bringing this old thread back up as I need to work the gritty feel out of a 1903a3 Trigger. I donít have a stone, is it also possible to smooth and buff this surface with say a 1500 grit sandpaper mounted to a flat block. I would start at 1500 then 2000 and 2500 then polish the surface oil and see where I am.

If I should just buy the stone I can do that but I have a match this coming weakend again and Iíd like to get the sandy feel out of the end of the second stage of this trigger before that point so I can practice.

I do have a plan B and I can steal my trigger and sear from my driller that is a better trigger while I wait for a proper stone.

I don't see why Wet-or-Dry paper wouldn't work, although you might want to glue it to a flat piece of steel so it stays flat instead of developing a "wave" in front of the working point which will kind of roll the edge.

Buy a very small triangular Arkansas stone and do it right. Screw it up trying to use sandpaper and there's no going back. It's as simple an answer as that.

Fine lapping compound on a sheet of glass should work also.

A stone is best but wet dry paper works too. Pull across paper, don't push. Use plenty of water. Work on a stable flat surface.
