My new 686 Plus 3 inch round butt works fine. But the DA is a little heavy.

I want to lighten the mainspring but leave the trigger return spring alone. I'm just going to step the mainspring to the next lower weight Wolff sells. I haven't checked yet. Reliability is very important of course.

When I tighten the mainspring tension screw (at the base of the grip) should I put some blue Loc-tite on it?

Also, the wood grip looks great but is actually awful. Would be good for concealment. But otherwise it lacks texture, doesn't offer any cushion, and the finger grooves couldn't be in a worse place for my hand.

Any of you have experience with the current Hogue or Pachmeyer rubber offerings?
