    pro fire trigger job

    It is possible to further lighten the trigger on marlin xt, replacing some spring or polishing it. I am not comfortable to the precision shooting thanks to all

    Cut one coil from the large spring on the left, stretch the next spring to the right a little. Do not alter the small spring in the trigger.
    Polish all the mating surfaces. Should get you down to around 1#, and still adjust upwards over 2#.

    Best of luck!
    Best Regards to All,

    Poish the parts that touch each-other (where they rub). Do not alter any sharp edges. here's a link to take it apart and put it back together...

    For target shooting from a bench rest, a light, crisp trigger is critical for getting consistent groups. A heavy, sloppy trigger tends to move the rifle, and hence POI.
    I didn't include instructions for stoning the trigger/sear engagement and removal of the trigger center leaf because if not done correctly can result in an action that slam fires easily, an extremely dangerous condition.
    My rifle will adjust down to 9oz. without the trigger center leaf, while not slam firing when closing the bolt, but will slam fire when dropped on the butt-stock from 12". With the leaf installed I can adjust it upwards of 2#, making a safe field gun.
    The trigger safety leaf locks the sear until pulled back, preventing a slam fire-the reason I recommend not altering it.
    My XT-22, trigger mods, re-crowned, glass bedded in a Boyd's Rimfire Hunter stock, BSA Contender 4-16X40 Target scope in Burris Signature ZEE rings....

    Radar1, I cut one coil off of the spring and the lowest setting I can now achieve is 3.5lbs. It's a nice improvement but I may remove one more coil so as to bring it to the 2.5lb range and adjust higher when needed. Stoning is not needed on mine, there's absolutely no creep. Question, why is it necessary to stretch the second spring?

I kind of like the Marlin stock because mine floats and does not negatively impact accuracy even when hot.
