Is it normal for the trigger to be so damn heavy? Ive read that messing with the triggers on these are hit or miss.

Common. Spring kit may or may not help. Test thoroughly if you go that route, light primer strikes are a possibility.

Yes, it's normal. (Or at least a heavy trigger is, not knowing exactly what yours is like.) It is supposed to be a DA 12lb trigger pull.

Dry fire it a lot. And then dry fire it more. The S&W triggers get quite nice after some dry fire time.

Cheers!

Apex trigger kit ($25) makes a huge difference. Two springs and a replacement firing pin. Very easy to install, a little polishing of the rebound block and trigger pull is vastly improved without compromising reliability. There are YouTube videos on the process, it doesn't take long at all.

I just ordered this kit and watched the video (both) on their website, very impressed ... can't wait to install on my 442.

+1 for Apex. Huge difference.

When you're installing the kit, take the time to lube the pivot points/studs for the hammer and trigger as well as the recess the rebound slide rests in. Make sure the hand/pawl stays nestled in the trigger, there's a little wire spring inside that is hooked to the base of the hand and keeps it in place. If it comes 'unhooked' and you put the gun back together, the cylinder will fail to rotate.

I've opened up brand new S&W revolvers that had NO lube at all in them....dry as a bone........
Maybe a couple shots of a good lube would help????????
