    Has anyone had a problem with inconsistent trigger pulls with a Ljutic Mono gun?
    If so how did you correct it?

    Replace the pins. Call Ljutic and they can send you a couple of sets. It's a 2 minute fix

    I 2nd the JimR suggestion, pins need replaced yearly on Ljutic Triggers

    They get worn and some times are broken or bent. Very Seldom bent as they are hardened

    Trade your old trigger in for a new " Patrick Mcarthy" style now made by Ljutic- More consistent.

    All new Ljutic's have the new style pull trigger.

    I had a SS one touch mono that was having problems with inconsistent trigger pulls, one time it would be 3.5 on the scale and the next time 5.5. Needless to say I shot the gun very inconsistently. After speaking to Mike @ Ljutic it was suggested to oil the sear. I talked to Terry Jones and worked out a traded with him and some cash also. Problem solved. It was a pleasure working with Terry and he was more than fair. Darn I miss that gun!!! Joe Stewart

    Buy 1/8 inch drill rod. Cut to correct length and lightly taper the ends. Place on fire brick and heat with torch until they glow red and loose their attraction to a magnet. Quinch in oil bath. Presto new cheap Ljutic pins.

    You can buy a box of 100 heat treated pins for about $30 at any industrial supply. Jimmy Ljutic will give you the name of the company they buy them from. That's what I did. I just don't recall the name. Change them out about every 2000 rounds. The hammer is so heavy that if you pull it outside of the gun you'll bugger up the pin.

    Traver's Tool Co. The pin is Holo-Krome, .125x1.00. be sure you order the black pins, the other one's are +.001 and will not go on the hammer pin hole.

    Leadshot,
    Call Jimmy Ljutic. I have ordered twice from Traver's and was sent the wrong pins both times. They must be holo-krome black.

    Anyone know what a new style trigger costs and what will they credit you for your trade?

    ggraham,

    If you go to Travers Tool and do a search for "dowel pin" you'll
    see a lot of choices.
    By brand, Holo-Krome makes great products but are pricey.
    An example would be the 1/8" x 1.00" pins. True Holo-Krome pins
    are $31.49 per 100.
    The brand TTC 1/8" x 1.00" pins are $10.49 per 100 with holo-krome plating
    (black). Travers part # 71-500-430
    Both are the same size (.1251 to .1253), both are also the same hardness.
    They also carry Brighton Best for $22.59 per 100. Same specs as the other
    two.
    Or just call Ljutic and have them send you some.

    Did you get a spare trigger with your perazzi, Mike?

    Gary,
    I know all the info is above but you get a part number on the invoice for the pins that worked for you?
    Thanks,
