Default two questions.

So on my Remington r1 I am hoping to trade out the spring and plug for a full length guide rod. Is this possible? Also I noticed that while my trigger is crisp and clean it has some wiggle. Is this normal? Possible to fix it without replacing trigger?

Normal cleaning procedures to swap out the spring and plug.

Need more info on "trigger wiggle". Up / Down? Left / Right? Fore / Aft? How much?

Agree ^^^^ Really shud not be any noticeable play in the trigger-
BUT is there a specific reason for wanting a FLGR? Its not going to help with any issues or improve anything---

Easier to strip.....that why I want the FLGR. No noticeable creep when hammer is cocked. But just when practicing drawing from holster with hammer down I noticed the trigger wiggles back and forth.....and a little left and right and maybe a little up and down. It all seems minor I just want to male sure its normal and not a sign of future problems?
