Single Action Revolver Tuning Question?
This question is regarding a trigger job I had my gunsmith do a few days ago. It was done on a Ruger NM Super Single Six. He told me that he went in and shortened the sear height to eliminate trigger creep and polished the working parts of the action. I have a question since this is the first trigger job that I have had someone do for me. If the hammer is cocked, and I put firm upward pressure on the back of the hammer with my thumb, should the hammer 'slip' the sear and drop without me ever pulling the trigger? It does take some pressure to do this, but I was wondering if this is normal on trigger jobs? The hammer never accidentally falls when I just cock it. I have also firmly 'bumped' the bottom of the grip frame on a thick phonebook with the hammer cocked and it doesn't seem to slip and fall under shock. I suppose I am just wondering if the slippage of the cocked hammer by firm thumb pressure is normal on trigger jobs. BTW, the trigger feels 110% better than it did from the factory.

No, it should not do that (that is called "push-off") and it is unsafe. The hammer should stay cocked with a moderate amount of pressure on it. You should contact the gunsmith and tell him.
