I have set the sear engagement and the overtravel but when i try to lower the trigger poundage it wont go anywhere. Aside from buying a new trigger and installing it, what other options to I have? I have thought about polishing it up to improve the sear engagement but it wont help with the poundage. It is almost as if the spring is too stiff and will require a softer spring. Any one else have this problem, and if so how was it fixed?
Don't mess with the sear unless you have a lot of experience honing trigger sears.
There are after market springs available that are lighter in brownells.
But after all that work it would pay to install an after market trigger .
My first choice for the Remingtion 700 would be the Jewell and next the timney.
