Ive put ~100 rounds down the tube. Trigger pull is still too heavy. Must have a Mack Truck spring in there. Makes a good steady shot more difficult than it needs to be.

Currently breaking at about 8 1/2# . Would like to get 4 to 5 # pull.

I know its not a sniper rifle but I'm a poor shot like it is!

Any way to do that myself without buying a $200 drop in trigger or such?

I used the instructions scoutman posted and have my 1895G down to about 1.75 lbs and a very clean break. My thought was, if I screwed up I could buy the Wild West trigger.
