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.
