Default Ruger Mini 30 trigger trouble

I have a problem with my Mini 30's Trigger. Every time I take a shot, the trigger seems to get caught on the sear and I have to nudge the trigger forward about a millimeter before I can take another shot, so i really can't enjoy the semi-auto function of the gun. This is very frustrating and I am wondering if anyone knows what causes this and if I could fix it.

Thanks a lot for any replies!

Replace the trigger return spring with an increased pressure or factory replacement and your trouble is over. It sounds like someone tried to reduce trigger pull weight and didn't know what they were doing. If that's not the case, it's an extremely rare case of the factory spring losing temper or being defective.
