Encore blues! Trigger job? Forend Wood blanks?

I really need to get a trigger job done to my Encore. It is impossible to hold completely steady until the trigger breaks even at 100 yds. This gun is pretty light, even with heavy barrel, and has a skinny rounded forend. All of these things together make for mediocre groups--about 1.25" @ 100 yds with 25-06 and 204 Ruger heavy barrels. Any suggestions about where to send it for a trigger job (cost?). Does anyone offer a wood or laminated forend inletted for the heavy barrel that could be then shaped-- I'm thinking of a beavertail or square shape. I know that this gun can shoot much better. Thanks! Sam
