What Dinny said, I experienced that on my 45-120 BC, I had it at ~2Żlbs IIRC, one day I noticed it seemed real light, checked it with my Lyman digital trigger scale at 21oz, had to replace parts to make it safe. You may be able to reharden the surface on the trigger and hammer after honing, but I don't remember anyone trying it, they're made of sintered metal, dunno if a surface hardening like Kasenit will work. The other issue is with the t-bar it will start having misfires with real light trigger pulls, eliminating the t-bar and using an old rebounding hammer may be a work around, but it may or may not work, Dinny tried it and had problems, but it did work for me on two frames, the 45-120 BC being one of them, I think the other was my 221 Fireball, but I've swapped frames from time to time, that may not have been the original barrel I had on that frame.
