For this page, we are dealing only with sear engagement. No polishing or action smoothing is being done, though it would be easy to do at the same time.

While the photos on this page are of a Model 24C series P, they are relevant to many other series of guns. In fact, the trigger mechanism is identical to the one on my 1980's vintage Series S.
