    Saw a few threads on Rimfire Central and You-tube videos on this and decided to try it. Basically you just remove the trigger spring and flip it over. Doing so was said to noticeably lower the trigger pull.

    I did it by following along with a video, no gunsmithing ability needed. It was easy to do, and it indeed feels like it lessened the trigger pull. I've since put a couple of hundred rounds through my Buckmark with no ill effects. Nice, simple to do, free mod. Just Google Buckmark spring flip.

    Anyone else here tried this?

    Mine was already flipped when I bought it used. I took it out and tried it both ways just out of curiosity. Works great.

    I did the same thing years ago. That pistol has been all over and many thousands of rounds no issues.

    That's something I've been meaning to do to mine and just haven't taken the time yet. Maybe one weekend this summer I'll finally get around to it...

    I think it took all of 10-15 minutes, knowing nothing, start to reassembled. Just started and stopped the video along the way. Very simple job, but with very good results.

    I've got such sweet light pull from the factory that I can't imagine making it even lighter.

    I bought a Buck Mark a few months ago. The trigger was smooth with about a 4.3# trigger pull. I decided to flip the trigger spring and now it is super smooth with a trigger pull of about 3.2#. Haven't had a chance to shoot it yet, looking forward to shooting it.
