Sounds like you have a rifle with great potential.
I have never changed the trigger in any of my model 70's. I find with just some honing and lapping and adjustment they are great triggers, especially the new MOA trigger.
The simplest way to do it is to bathe the trigger group and safety in 320gr lapping compound and work the hell out of them for a few hundred cycles.
Then flush it all out and repeat with 800gr.

When finished blow it all out with gun scrubber or something similar, lubricate properly and you'll be amazed at how clean and crisp it will be.
In the rare case there's a big burr making it rough that you can't get rid of this way, take it to a gunsmith and ask him to clean it up.
Be sure once you have it adjusted to suit you that you put some locktite or superglue on the adjustment nuts to keep them from walking.
