Ruger Bearcat trigger work?

Out of the garden and into the gun room, hi Marturo.
I have a very old Ruger Bearcat that I dearly love! However, it's trigger pull is nothing short of ridiculous! Is there a site i can go to that describes the procedures for smoothing and reducing the trigger pull?
I understand firearms very well and don't need to hear the warnings about trigger work. If one man can do it, another man can also do it!
Is this information available?

Smile Trigger job on Ruger Bearcat

All the Ruger shooters I know just get a Trigger job book, Tools & make both their BlackHawks, Super BlackHawks & the RedHawks very smooth with light actions.

*Good GunSmith, Bad GunSmith* unless they are your Brother in Law, due to law suites they just smooth it up a little, that will leave in too much creep & weight. When I blue printed the NM M1-A triggers to 4.75 lbs that is a far cry from being too light. Now my Bolt Rifles triggers weigh in from 11 ozs to 1.5lbs I had to learn DI Myself one step at a time.

Ruger Revolvers have good strong hammers & trigger parts, when done slow & even you begin to see why we Do It Ourselves. Wolff Gun springs make lighter & faster for all guns & they do feel like a trigger job on some Relovers.

Secret's yes we try to hone & polish the trigger groups to mesh like the gun has worn it's parts smoth & with full contact like we shot it for 20 years. The part called the sear can get you in trouble so learn it well. I can always take more off, however I can not always put it back.

Why not get to know this fine little revolver by replacing the stock springs with a Wollf Spring kit? Then with the 2 trigger stones & the manual, true & polish the trigger parts? Take your time & make it smooth as glass a little bit at a time.

( ) Parts, Books, chems, tools all for Guns, their World Class sales techs, are what any PC owner can only wish to have, when ol sparky get's cranky LOL.

How easy?:
