    Kolar did mine on my XT. I'm spoiled now though, I can't use a trigger with a hard pull without flinching really bad.

    Why not remove the stock, degrease the receiver and parts, relube it and put a small dab of good gun grease on the sear surfaces of the hammers?

    This will likely improve the triggers, reduce wear on the parts, increase life of the fiream, and NOT COST ANYTHING, while keeping the gun in stock condition.

    If the triggers are lightened, the loaded off safe firearm you have just loaned a new shooter is dropped on concrete and discharges, think about the legal jeopardy you have just put yourself in. (gulp)

    You are not shooting a rifle. If you are squeezing the trigger like a rifle, you may be thinking about THE TRIGGER instead of LOOKING AT THE TARGET.

    The trigger pull on mine was well over 5lbs. I had Spears in KS do it and it is VERY nice now.

    I do not believe it is a good idea to place grease on the hammer notch and trigger sear surfaces. This action could lead to an accidental discharge of the weapon. HMB
