Moon, I'm directly comparing it to a current production PPK/S in .380 - the DA on the .380 is quite a bit lighter. I'm serious when I say that the .32 actually feels like it has a safety on until I pull harder until the hammer finally starts to pull back. It's the heaviest trigger I've ever felt. Most of my SA/DA experience has been Sig P226's and P229's.The .22 may have a stouter mainspring due to .22 ignition.
For the OP, make sure the internals are clean and lubed. Not sure what your frame of reference may be, but my Rangers don't seem all that awful.
