Default walther p99 help

I recently acquired a walther p99 in 40 and the trigger pull is very high. I want to lower the trigger pull to under 6lbs at least. Any gunsmithing or walther enthusiasts here that can help me or point me in the right direction? Thanks

It's a striker fire.
Part of the heavy trigger pull is that you are also "loading" the striker for a good hit on the primer.

If you lighten the striker spring, you may experience light hits. You could also create other problems.

So look at the trigger return spring. Maybe that could be lightened.

Remember that springs lose their tension with use. Maybe some range and dry-fire time?

Isn't the p99 a single/double action?

better judged by twelve than carried by six.
