Lots of discussion here, most folks are apparently just using a weaker sear spring but there is some honing done and Rifle Basix makes a rather expensive adjustable trigger.

This outfit in Yorkshire has the Rifle Basix trigger for 70 pounds.

Likely some information here, look around.

I agree with Jim. I have done several marlins by putting in a slightly lighter trigger spring and then polishing. It improved the trigger a great deal. Do not go too light on the spring and only lightly polish the metal parts. The trigger in this gun was never designed as a target trigger and safety is the most important thing. Be sure to cock your unloaded gun and drop it smartly on the butt several times to be sure that the hammer does not fall after you have worked on it.
Best to all, John K
