check out this guys website
i used his springs on several of my rifles and you would not believe what a difference they make
it comes out to about $10.00 a rifle (including shipping) and it takes all of 5 minutes to do

I'd be wary of changing the trigger reset spring. Most apply a certain amount of force for a reason.

When I converted my 870 to a dedicated slug gun, I put one of those in it. Took the trigger pull down to about 2.5 lbs and tightened up my groups considerably. Would not recommend a trigger that light for more traditional hunting done with a shotgun like wing shooting or rabbit hunting.

i don't know how familiar you are with the litigation that occurred causing the firearms industry to dramatically increase the trigger pull weight circa 1980's to avoid liability issues
but that is one of the reasons they put stronger springs in them
i am sure that there are mechanical reasons on some rifles as well
but for me a 7-8 lb pull and a 400+ yard shot is not a good combination and the rifles i have converted are from that time frame for the most part

He works for a major firearms maker & has a fair bit of knowledge I would think lol
