sig p238 trigger pull
 
I took my p238 in to get the trigger lightened up from about a 7 1/2 lb to around a 5 lb and the gunsmith said that lightening it anymore than the stock setting caused the hammer to follow the slide home upon releasing the slide. Anyone know what I can do to lighten the trigger pull without inducing that malfunction?

Let's see if I have this correct:
You took your gun to a gunsmith to lighten the trigger pull (obviously because you could not do it yourself),
The 'smith sez "Don't do it" (probably based on his years of experience.),
And now you want to try it yourself against his advice..

Is that right?

I have found that repeated shooting tends to smooth out an action.

Put in a lighter mainspring....at your own risk of course.

He said HE couldn't do it, yes. His years of experience may tell him that but my years of experience in shooting also tell me that one gunsmith gunsmith's answer may not always be the only answer. Therefore, I am seeking other opinions. I do appreciate the continuous firing to smooth the trigger opinion though.

I have looked into after market parts but am unaware of any for this model.

A good gunsmith familiar with the 1911 pattern should be able to make some improvments. #1 improvment you can do for $0, dry fire about 500 times. The trigger pull will improve.
