Here are a few pictures before and after.

The after is with the RTK trigger. You can see how much of the pre-travel was eliminated.

Here is a picture of the hammer with a red line showing the area I cut back. This boss sets the stroke and release of the hammer.

Was the pull weight changed?

No, it doesn't feel like it. I didn't address the pull because for my taste the pull wasn't the issue. I could have polished the surface I cut and lightened the trigger spring. I was more focused on trigger travel. Have you seen the M Carbo spring kit?

My gun is the LC9s . I'm interested in increasing the trigger pull, too light for my liking. Any suggestions?

I don't know anything about the LC9s. Did you buy the LC9s new so that you know the trigger spring is stock? If you know the trigger spring is stock and it is too light, I would say the easiest way to add weight to the trigger pull would be to acquire a heavier spring and try it out. If you bought the firearm from someone else, it is possible they installed a lighter spring kit. In that case go back to stock. I wish I could help more. Maybe someone else more familiar with the LC9s has better ideas.

Thanks, mine is stock. So simply replacing the trigger spring will do it. Ok , I guess it will have to be trial and error because I doubt there are any off the shelf springs for this gun.

I am new to the Ruger LC9. I have several handguns and just added a new LC9 to my line-up (Actually LC380 with the 9mm slide mod). I don't like the long travel of the trigger and have heard there are (or were) a few trigger upgrade products out there. The 2 that I researched are no longer available. I am particularly interested in the Solomon Short Stroke product but it seems to be obsolete.

Does anyone have a suggestion on something that is currently available?
I have just bought the lc9 for my wife and also not happy with same issues.have been looking for trigger mods to fix that but also looking for feed back.what I've found so far but not purchased was the solomon short stroke.but have held off because id like feed back from someone who has used it.

Initially, I did buy and own a Ruger LC9 for quite some time as a CCW pistol. As much as I tried to turn that "sow's ear" into a silk purse, as far as trigger pull and better operation was concerned, I could not find the redeeming solution. So, it was placed in the "experienced" section of a display case. A customer bought it up in a heartbeat, as he liked the trigger pull just like it was. Can't argue with that!

Must be a very good reason, though, that Ruger went with a striker fired version (LC9s) rather than the double action hammer fired style. I know, I now have and like that version much, much better.

Sorry, but since Ruger quit making the internal hammer fired LC9, I don’t think anyone makes trigger mods for it.

I still carry the original LC9, the trigger will smooth out a little after many rounds down range. I wish there was a reverse mod to make the LC9 into a LC380.
Just for reference Ruger once again lists the LC380CA

Wish they would of continued to make it. They very quickly discontinued it and only make it in the EC version. Would love to see them make an LC308s. Have the LC380 and hate the trigger.

I just found out that Galloway precision has brought out a new modified trigger that reduces weight and length of pull and reset by 30%. Might be looking into it as the price is only $55.00 on Galloway website. My smith said he can install it for about $40 bucks.

This one? Aegis Short Stroke Trigger for Ruger® LC9s® and EC9s® Pistols
I just installed it last week...Easy install, no need to spend $40 if you can follow the easy instructions on their install video
