I removed the "lawyer" spring last night, what a huge difference in the trigger. I just wanted to thank everyone for posting such usefull info. The trigger mod took about 15 minutes and was well worth it. The pull weight has gone from 4.5lbs with alittle creep to under 2 pounds. Feels like an old High Standards pistol trigger. It wasn't difficult at all. The hardest part was prying the cover plate off of the trigger pack. I bent the end of the spring straight so I could retain it and use it as a spacer.
I did notice alittle more creep after removing the spring. I adjusted everything to where I wanted it and oh boy
what a difference! It breaks like the proverbial glass rod. I moved the trigger position alittle more forward, then I adjusted the first and second stages (real easy to see how it all works with the cover plate removed). I now have a short first stage followed by a super light, crisp second stage.
After I got all the creep out I reduced the weight more by adjusting the pull weight screw. I found it easier to dial in alittle more weight with the weight screw, then do my stage and position adjustments. After I got everything perfect I dialed down the poundage to my liking. I didnt want to totally remove the first stage like ive heard others do on this forum. I will be using the rifle hunting and I dont want a accidental discharge if I drop or bump the gun in the woods. I tested it for safety by cocking it and banging the butt on the kitchen floor from about a foot high. The Mrod didnt fire when I did that so Im confident I wont have any safety issues.
I encourage anyone thinking about doing this mod to go ahead with it. Dont fear the trigger pack, it is a very simple design. The time and effort were well worth it. The internal trigger parts look like they have a anti-friction coating on them. They are a gold color, I didnt lube up the internals like I would have with my AR15. I left them dry which is what crossarms recommends anyway. Good luck and good shooting
