I will admit I missed the statement that it was not factory adjustable. I apologize for that. I still stand by every thing else I said.

I agree with gunnut07 100%
trigger work is not some kind of forbidden teritory one should not tread unless you are a licensed FFL gunsmith who has been doing it for 50 years. there was a point where the experienced gunsmith had no experience and had to follow procedures laid out by the manufacturer or the maker of the replacement part until he did it so much that he has the procedure memorized.
as already stated by gn as long as factory instructions or the instructions of the replacement parts maker is followed to a T then that leaves no room for mistakes.
there are those who would shudder and cringe at the thought of even attempting to do this kind of work because someone else put the notion in their head that trigger work is dangerous vodoo and you will wind up killing your self or someone else for attempting such near impossible feats that should only be done by a master craftsman
if everyone had this attitude then it would be nearly impossible to get anyone to get trigger work done to their guns guns
no need for me to say any more than what has already been posted by gun nut
anyway that is my dimes worth.

if you mean adjusting a factory adjustable trigger, then yes you are correct that it can be done safely as long as the instructions are followed to the letter and done properly.

if you mean changing sear angles and tolerances and changing or modifying springs or spring rates, no it should never be done by an amatuer or those not properly trained to do so.

I took a glock and with DIY modding it went from 5.5 lb trigger and with every mod it droped so much kept it at 3.5-4lbs but took it a lil further polished the internals and put new springs and such and ended up with a glock 30 with a 1.4lb trigger lol the guys at the gun shop flipped and at the range they told me I couldn't shoot it unless I changed it back so now it's about 3lbs and it's cool 2 know I can make it less than 2lbs in less that 5min any time I want....
