    First, the strain screws for SB and RB guns are different. If you need one for a RB, I think I have one somewhere, PM me.

    Second, replace the mainspring with the factory one (you show one in the pictures) and try it again. That should cure any problems with light strikes.

    Third, if the strain screw on your wife's gun wasn't screwed in all the way originally and you screwed it in all the way when you reinstalled it, it's normal that the trigger pull feels heavier. When a revolversmith wants to lighten the trigger pull on an S&W K, L, or N frame, s/he shortens the strain screw to get the desired effect and screws the strain screw all the way in. Simply backing off on the strain screw is considered a bad practice. If your wife feels the trigger pull is too heavy with the strain screw all the way in, and there's a factory mainspring in the gun, try replacing it with the Wolff mainspring from your gun.

    Thanks for the offer but I ordered one for a round butt last night. I only removed the screw from the square but in order to compare it with the others. It is longer of course but I noticed that it is tapered on the end where the other two are not.

If the gun runs as is, I wouldn't mess with it. Note that there are two flavors of that mainspring, standard power and reduced power. The reduced power often gives light strikes when shooting DA.
    I think I will try the Wolff standard power spring with a brand new strain screw first. If I am still having issues then I'll switch back to the factory spring.

    The wolf standard power and a factory strain screw should light off anything you put in it. That said, Id also stick with the factory weight spring on a .357. The Wolf type 1 will fit the bill. JMO.
