    Camp 9 trigger job - need recommendations

    My Camp 9 is dead-on accurate, but the trigger is heavier than I'd like. I've done a web search, but can't really find any type of "drop-in" parts that reliably lighten the trigger.
    M-Carbo makes a spring kit, but the two reviews on their site are less than steller. And I've had experience with their Marlin 60 spring kit; wasn't that impressed with the result. So I am wary.
    I'm not looking for a backyard-mechanic solution like cutting the springs, and I don't want to polish or grind any parts.
    So ... does anyone make a reliable trigger-pull reduction kit for this gun, or am I basically stuck with the factory trigger?
    Thanks

    Can you be more specific. The only springs they make for the Camp 9/45 are recoil springs, to my knowledge, which would be meaningless for my purposes.

    Having recently re-worked my own 9mm Camp Carbine (it's a horror story in itself), I think you may not have many options. There are a LOT of pieces in the "fire control group", and just this fact alone makes it unlikely that a really decent trigger pull is as easily possible as it is on other rifles. I may be wrong about that, (and I hope I am), but it is something to bear in mind.

    Thanks North Idaho, I believe you are correct on all counts, based on what I have also heard and read. I think I will either have to live with it or part with it. Time and another range session will tell.

    Us shade tree mechanics improve the trigger with some polish on the hammer and sear. I found it reduces the trigger weight by 1/3 to 1/2 and any grit but there will usually be some creep left.

    Mush - Is there a way to do this without taking everything apart? That is, can you put some polish on a Q-tip or whatever and just work it back and forth on the two surfaces within the trigger assembly, or isn't there enough clearance to get a Q-tip in? I'm not eager to take the trigger assembly apart.
    If there is room, what do you recommend for a polish? I've never done this before, so I don't want to go overboard, if I would decide to do it.
    Thanks

    Thanks, I had seen that video. My question is how to polish the hammer and sear without overdoing it, which I am told can lead to some unpleasant results (doubling, etc.) Not sure I want to attempt this, but if so, can you briefly explain how it's done. I assume you use a Dremel. What type of bit do you use, what type of polishing compound, how do you determine when you've polished it enough, etc.? Thanks

    That trigger assembly is very tricky to reassemble.....I wouldn't recommend it. (Too many itsy bitsy fiddly bits!)
