I'm going out on a limb here... Any sear on any pistol can be re-worked for a lighter pull. But in a derringer platform, I wouldn't recommend it. The high pull rate on your derringer is there for a REASON! It forces the shooter to grip the derringer tight in your hand, in order to fire it. I lowered the pull rate on my NAA .22 Magnum and I didn't like it, as it fired too easy and I didn't grip it as strong as I should have. The pistol tends to roll upward in to the web of your hand if you don't grip it tight enough.
So, get used to a heavy pull. Have your wife dry-fire it over and over again. You'll be surprized how quickly she will get accustomed to it.
