I'm in the market for one and the Lyman and the Wheeler Engineering one are available
all over the place, the Wheeler is likely Chinese and I have no clue about the Lyman
other than that both have a spectrum of prices. What is important to me is repeatability
and accuracy so does anyone have suggestions? Thanks.

There are mechanical gauges out there but the one of those I had developed what
can best be characterized as metal fatigue and lost predictability which is why I
decided to go with an electronic one.

I've been using a digital lyman for about 10 years. It's very consistent although I haven't used check weights to verify it's accuracy. I use it to set triggers as light as 1.5#. Measures up to 12#. Does well on long DA pulls and helps me detect stacking.

I ultimately ordered the Lyman, made in China or not, I
have had very on again off again results with anything
sold by Midway unless it was a reseller so rather than
waste my money, I went Lyman, will report back once
it arrives and I get to test both it and the trigger job
my gunsmith is doing on two MKII Ruger 22s.
