It does have a short trigger, but as far as I can find, its the correct trigger for this this model in 1985. I do prefer a longer trigger. If this one doesn't work out I will change it. Its not like the pistol in in original condition to start with.

It would be perfect for my small hands.

I finally made it to the range last Wednesday to shoot this little pistol. I put 12 rounds thru it and it liked to ripped my hand off with reloads. It definitely needed a recoil spring. I didn't get a pic of the target, but the shots were all over the place. I felt the recoil spring was so weak that it wasn't getting a good lockup. I ordered a Wolff 22# recoil spring, 19# main spring and a extra power firing pin spring, got all that put in and hit the range this morning. It was 47 degrees and the wind was blowing around 25mph with gusts to 38mph. Needless to say the wind was brutal, and it was cold. I put about 30 rounds thru it from 10 and 15 yards. It was a little finicky with my 200gr cast semi wad cutter, but liked the 230gr cast round nose. And of course it liked 230gr ball. I'll play around with the 200gr semi wad cutter once the weather warms up more.

As far as the pistol, the new main spring raised the trigger pull from 5.5 pounds to 5# 10oz, but I can still live with it. The new recoil spring has tamed the recoil a bunch and its definitely has good lock up.

Here's the target such as it is, 7 and 15 yards. As I said, it was 47 degrees and windy as all get out, and cold. My main objective was to see how well it functioned.

Looks pretty darn good to me, especially under those conditions. It sounds like you're on the right track.
