A trigger is a precision piece of equipment and any good trigger will give you problems

There is a trick if you live in a dusty environment to minimize this.-- Take a piece of very soft
foam and cut a strip a little larger than the trigger guard slot and and only about 1/4' thick
and using a razor blade split the foam down the middle in the center about 1/2'' long and
slip it over the trigger and down in the slot . make sure that the foam is soft enough not
to interfere with the operation of the trigger.
There could have been a problem with the trigger even though it was a jewell , but if it was
dirty it is not the triggers fault.
