How do those DIP triggers help? They don't change the mechanics at all do they?

They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.

The angle & width of the trigger is different so you use less felt pressure to actuate the trigger...
it also gives you adjustability to take out creep & other issues...and its CNC'd aluminium, so unlike OEM it'll never warp or break.
so it feels lighter than it registers on a poundage gauge
You can see the differences from OEM in this pic.

Now I also stone the mating surfaces where the Hammer & Trigger meet...making the surfaces smoother works wonders on ANY rifle or pistol

My Grandson has been shooting with me lately. He's nine, and has to put the stock under his arm pit because his arms aren't long enough yet. I bought a Arch Angle stock for the 597 & with the stock collapsed to it's shortest setting the rifle fits him just right. Plus, I can extend the stock & use the 597 myself.
If you're riding' ahead of the herd, take a look back every now and then to make sure it's still there.
