I am of the opinion that springs should never be cut. I would recommend purchasing a new set of springs before doing anything.
If you cut too much, you then introduce questionable reliability.
What is your trigger poundage now? If you don't know, then how will you know if you are not already at that 3-4 lbs.

Hi Gunny23. Welcome to the Forum. With spring kits being as cheap as they are, I would measure your current trigger pull weight (for a baseline). Then I would call Wolf Springs and discuss the options. Since they sell stock weight replacement springs, you should be able to tell how your trigger pull stacks up against the standard.......

There are times to cut coils off springs , but most of the time to reduce spring power it is best to find a rod that just fits into the spring , let in stick out each side enough to hold , then go to a belt sander put spring against the wheel and reduce the outside dia. till you have what You want

Remove the grips. Look at the two trigger return spring legs hooked over the hammer stud. Remove one and just let it hang off the side of the hammer. Replace the grips.
See if that gets ya where ya wanna go.

I have two Vaqueros and I purchased the Wolf Spring kits for them. It was an easy switch. They sent three springs in the kit and I put in the middle one. It turned out just right.
The pistols were for Cowboy Action Shooting but I never got into it very heavy. Go to one of the Cowboy Boards (SASS) and they all know about this mod.
