Abzugsgewicht des 929

I´ve been asked several times in between, what the Trigger pull of my 929 is. After cleaning yesterday, I used the opportunity to measure:

Abzugsgewicht 929
Trigger pull  929

2,5Kg DA pull

as average of 8 measures (one round). With this weight, I can still ignite 99% of Geco’s 139grs factory load with Sintox primers which I often shoot in practice. But for matches, I take the safe way and use a handload with Federal 100 primers and the 139grs Geco 9mm bullet and  Reload Swiss RS12.

*** edit: in between, I was able to reduce the pull by 200 gramms more – pull is now 2.3Kg! I´ve got a prototype of a new APEX firing pin which ignites even a bit better than the old one and it allows to reduce the pull weight a bit more. Stay tuned for updates as soon as it is available!

  1. Great website and nice results!

    Do you prefer the 929 over the 627?

    Is this because of easier access to cases, ammo and projectiles? Or some other reason?

  2. Thanks Richard! The 627 is a great revolver. But to shoot it competitive in IPSC Revolver, you have the hassle of using (38ShortColt) hand loads. The 929 in this case, is a bit more versatile for me. I can shoot Geco 139grs factory ammo in practice and for matches, I can shoot the 139grs bullet as a hand load with Reload Swiss RS12 loaded exactly to my needs. And in case of traveling by plane to matches, you’re not absolutely bound to hand loads. You can also just buy 9mm ammo on the spot.
    Additionally, the 929 has a titanium cylinder which is very hard to get for a 627.
    For me especially, it wasn’t a question at all because my 627 was already heavily tuned for open division (milled barrel with integrated compensator).

  3. Good point on the airplane issue and easy access to ammo when travelling!

    I heard the weight of the Ti cylinder also helps in lock time as well as trigger pull and resistance to wear from the hand/pawl.

    1. yep, right. The ti cylinder can be rotated much easier and they don’t wear as fast on the notches as steel ones. Unfortunately, they’re harder to make. And sometimes, the mechanical quality ain’t that good (rough surfaces in chambers causing sticky extraction or different sized exit holes). But I was lucky. My 627 and the 929 ti cylinders are both working fine. 🙂
