Default Lighter trigger pull

I recently purchased a Bushmaster and would like to lighten the trigger pull. I don't want to spend $200+ on a match trigger and I don't want to send it to the gunsmith. Is there a way that I could get my 7lb trigger to a 3lb(ish) pull myself?

RRA has about the best ( 2 ) stage trigger going today. I just bought one for $99 shipped to my door. I don't know if that is in your price range or not, but that would be my first recommendation.

Depending on the configuration of your current trigger, there are a couple of tricks that can be done with the existing spring and the existing mating between the hammer and trigger.

Shoot me a PM with your specific trigger type ( Is it the BushMaster factory? Or a drop in part? ) and I will see what I can come up with for you.

PM Sent - Advocating at home trigger jobs is something like to stay away from in the open forums. Too much liability.

Yeah. No Problem Bro.

Keep in mind that those springs are only like $3 frm Brownell's or Midway, so if you order them up ahead of time, and screw something up, it's an easy fix...
