    I have an MX-8 trigger that I converted from a release{Allem}/pull back to a pull/pull by removing the release hook & spring below it & installing a new spring, spring guide & sear retainer sleeve {not sure if the nomenclature is correct}. The trigger functions as a pull/pull now, but the pull wt. on bottom barrel trigger, which had been the release, is about 4 1/2 lbs. while the top barrel pull wt. is slightly over 3 lbs. Since the gun shoots the bottom barrel first, what is required to bring the pull wt. down closer to the wt. on the top barrel? I assume the 4 1/2 lbs. was purposely set to establish the set wt. on the release. The spring under the release hook was a little shorter than the new spring, don't know if that matters or not. Thanks for any help, John
