Default Do It Yourself

I have a M77 MKII Compact. I did the trigger myself and it now is down to 2lbs 5ozs. They are super easy to do. Take it apart and take a look at it while "firing" it. There are only two mating surfaces to polish. I did this with my Dremmel Tool and some polishing compound from Home Depot(or Lowe's). Either the white or the brownish red will work just fine. You can also use FLINTZ.

If you do it yourself it is very important to go slowly. Your objective is not to take away any material but to polish what is there to a chrome like shine. Do not change any angles. NEVER let a file or sandpaper near any firearm.

There are several aftermarket triggers that you can buy also. GOOGLE is your friend. Start with Brownell's and Midway USA. Good luck. --- SAWMAN

Triggers jobs are an easy to moderate DIY job. It just mostly involves stoning and polishing the sear surfaces.

I had the same problem with my 308. I had about a 6.5 pound pull. I had a Timney trigger and I now have to get adjusted to the light trigger. I will shoot better after I get adjusted.
