Simplest & SAFEST way to lighten trigger Pull

1808 2
Howdy all,

I've been smoothing up triggers/ sears for years to make the second stage have a smoother and sweeter pull, but I've always wondered how to actually reduce a trigger pull.

Correct me if I am wrong, but I've measured all my M1A trigger to about 5-6 lbs... maybe the odd one breaking at 4.75 lbs. How do I get it down to a Precision (read: sniper) Rifle pull of 3 lbs without the risk of the stick doubling ??

Suggestions ? Cut a couple of coils off the hammer spring ?

Thanks for the technical help !!
