I have the same rifle and I agree with the trigger tightness. But I guess I've adapted a little to it.

I recommend you take it to a gunsmith. I've done it just enough to know it can be a dangerous do it yourself project. One mistake can be way too many.

Onehorse might know too. Both Ronn and he are top dogs for this question. Gunsmith is always a best bet.

I've worked on Remington triggers with mixed results. The best advice I can give is to play it safe. Take the rifle to a gunsmith and see if it can be adjusted to your liking or retrofit it with a better after-market trigger. These can be expensive, but they are the best way to improve accuracy in any rifle. Really, a good trigger will make a world of different!

I had no idea that there are aftermarket triggers and all that. I'll definitely look into that..

timber, oh heck yeah. the receiver is the base and its not much work these days days to build a custom rifle at a price that would surprise you. barrels, triggers, stocks, short money compared to even 10 years ago. bell and carlson stock $200. timney trigger $100. barrel $200. smithing $200. base reciever
$75 for a crap mauser or sprigflield rifle. one of a kind rifle thats just what you want and fits you. good as or better than anything you could buy for a grand
