Default Better SKS trigger?

The trigger pull on my Yugo SKS is long with no crisp letoff. It's not exactly a mushy pull, more like I'm pulling my finger through pudding, even though it's very smooth and consistent through the entire pull. I want a little lighter, crisper pull. What have you guys used with good results?

If Obama is the answer, then the question must have been stupid.

If you'd like to do the work yourself, check out these links:

SKS Trigger Rework Tips

Lastly, this guy does a "match" trigger for SKS's. You might check out his site:
SKS triggers, improve the safety of the SKS carbines

Other than that, I don't know of any magical drop-in trigger groups for the SKS. I know Red-Star used to sell (they may still) excellent AK trigger groups, but I don't know if they sell any for the SKS. Good luck.

I followed the instructions in this five part youtube series with excellent results.
My SKS trigger (creep, break, smoothness) is almost as good as my Reminton 30-06. There is still a lot of take up of course (more now that I've taken out the creep) and over travel but it's much better to shoot.
