    I am not saying you should do this to your trigger. I am only showing what I did to my trigger
    and it worked very well for me. I replaced the sear spring that the factory adjuster pushes
    on for a harder pull and replaced it with a cut down spring from a ball point pen. Cut approx.
    the same length as the original spring. after cutting the pen spring I took the fist coil where
    I cut it and wound it to a smaller radius. (see pic) I then took a piece of brass and turned it
    down to .120 dia X .230 length and drilled a 1/16" hole through it length wise. Then I punched
    out the 1/16" pin that is the trigger forward travel stop, and put the piece of brass in and pushed
    the pin through. This greatly reduces the amount of trigger travel. This combined with the weaker
    spring gives me a trigger pull of slightly less that 1 1/2 pounds. The safety is unaffected and works
    like it always has. And the best part.....NO COST trigger mod 002.JPGtrigger mod 005.JPGtrigger mod 007.JPGtrigger mod 009.JPGtrigger mod 012.JPG

    If it works that is great. Just be careful. Remember that since it is adjusted, the gun may go off at any time...especially when closing the bolt, letting the safety off, or dropping the gun. Just because it seems safe now does not mean it always will be.
