If 3 lbs on the HACT doesn't work out for you, sell it and get a https://timneytriggers.com/index.php...per&Itemid=62; you get down to 1.5 lbs.

    If it is possible to modify a trigger, why spend a lot of money on a new one?
    A new trigger would be the last option.
    Thanks for the assistence.

    I'm sure it can be modified, i.e. by a competent gunsmith, but an hourly cost of $50-$75 labor cost and a minimum charge, it might be a wash at the end.

    In addition, someone might be happy with that trigger "as-is". You can then use part of the recouped cost from the sale towards a new one. Your choice to call, just trying to provide alternatives for your consideration!

    I personally keep all my hunting rifle trigger pull at 2.5-3.0 lbs.

    I got it right! I took out the actuator and polished the different planes. At the moment my trigger pull is at 1 lb. Perfect!

    I can't waite to test it - that will only be on Saturday!

    Hey Kiwi Nate, just wondering if you removed the safety block, would you be able to freely adjust the trigger with no sear engagement issue? Picking up a Howa next week and don't know whether to adjust the stock trigger or just buy a timney.
    Thanks
