Send it to a REALLY good gunsmith.....me, stalkingbear, and 7mmstw on here could all do it. I can anyways. DO NOT TRY AND MODIFY IT YOURSELF.

It needs to be milled yes but all the springs will need to be replaced, and all the inner mechanisms will need to be stoned/polished down just a tad

if not experianced at doing triggerwork, do not attemp to do it yourself. get a compentent gunsmith to do it for you. it is money well spent to keep the rifle safe to use. trigerwork is not an area to try and modify unless you know waht you are doing.

Travel springs/tension springs can be replaced w stiffer ones. If you don't know how to do it DO NOT TRY IT.
