I just picked up my 2nd Model 97. Both have the factory trigger work for 3lb. They are crisp triggers and better than most guns. The factory will not send out guns with less than 3lbs. I use mine for target work and do not carry them around or hunt. I wish that I had a 1.5 to 2lb trigger on both as this would aid accurate target work. I have a Contender with a safe 1.5lb trigger and it is worlds better for accurate shooting. What is required to lower the pull weight on a FA? I doubt stoning and polishing would be needed as the pull is crisp and creap free already. I like full mainspring tension for sure strikes. Is the answer the trigger spring? I doubt anyone makes a weaker spring like they do for Colts & Rugers? Can any other brand be used in a FA or can the stock one be stretched or bent to lower pull? I feel sure that competition shooters using the FA have done - or had done - something to lower the pull weight?
