    Anyone had any luck lighten up a Beretta shotgun trigger. Short of sending it to a gunsmith. A friend has a 41/2 # trigger wants 3#.

    Short of sending it to a qualified gunsmith? Tell him to push the gun forward a few inches as he pulls the trigger...it will feel like 3 lbs.

    Otherwise a trip to someone who knows what they are doing is the obvious answer.

    Pull the gun in tighter, the trigger will be easier to pull. Roy

    big ben is right. 4 1/2 pounds is a pretty good weight. A lot of people don't know that a very light trigger pull is just as likely to cause a flinch as a very heavy pull. You can also get into safety issues, doubling, not resetting for the second shot, etc.

    As your mother said when you got your first pimple: "Leave it alone, you'll only make it worse."
