Depending on the rifle, the DP trigger will cure some to most of the trigger pre travel. To lighten the pull you will have to perform some or all of the trigger tricks listed on some of the forums. The Marlin semi-automatic forum on rimfirecentral has a sticky on trigger work. I was able to go from 6.5 lb pull to 4.5 lbs without doing anything special. Go slowly and enjoy the ride.
