    Tell us what you did to help the trigger. I've got one that needs some improvement.

    The parts are stamped the springs are stiff. Stone the sharp edges off the sides of the sear and trigger shoe. Stay away from the sear/trigger engagement area. No need to mess with that. I stone then polish the sear to trigger contact point then replace the larger of the two springs with a lighter spring. Stone the sharp edges off the posts that mount the parts and coat everything with grease going back together.

    Medium height (0.96") Leupold vertical split rings fit the scope to the barrel and receiver perfectly BUT the bolt handle hits the scope (Vortex Crossfire II 2-7x32 Rimfire) at the power adjuster ring.

    Ugh...

    I hate shopping for rings and I simple REFUSE to use "see-through" peek-a-boo rings.

    Still need to work on the sling.

    Here are the products I used in order from left to right. Alternate saddle soap, nylon brush, cotton rag (buff) 3-5 times then the conditioner/cleaner in the black bottle. Finished up with the Nokona glove treatment slathered on thick and left in the sun to soak in. More pics to come when it final buffed with an old cotton t-shirt.

    Second try on the rings worked out. They are too high for my taste but beggars cannot be choosers. The 0.97" tall Leupold rings were too short to clear the bolt handle and the 1.3" tall UTG rings look silly but...
