Try looking in a fishing tackle shop for a spring balance. It will do the same job and be cheap enough for the odd occasion you are planning on using it.

On the rare occasion when I need one, a coat hanger bent and attached to a plastic bottle and hung from the trigger with firearm pointing up.  Fill the bottle gently with water and when it releases, weigh the whole contraption.  Saves having to guess the spring balance reading at release....

Works for me.

I have a digital luggage scale that I have used to check pull weight occasionally, but it takes practice to stop at the break point.

Dunc's post sounds like the most accurate method without some expensive strain gauge kit.

An additional word of advice if I may.  Please have a spare pair of hands to help you with this.  My first attempt was by myself and I ended with a very wet floor!!!!!
