Have any of you done any trigger work on the Marlin 717M2? I'd sure like to lighten mine up some.

I have only experienced one problem in about 400 rounds (so far) when my 12 yr. old grandson had a round rupture upon firing. Don't know if it was fully chambered before ignition or ??. Instant lesson for him in eye / ear protection at all times, and muzzle control / awareness. He got a little spray on his cheek, finger immediately off the trigger, and muzzle downrange. I complimented him for instinctively doing that boring stuff grandpa had hammered into his head for the last several years.
But, back on topic, is the Mod. 60 fire control system available as an aftermarket item - would Remington even know what I was talking about much less sell me one ?
