    It would require stoning the trigger & hammer square with each other and polishing the engagement surfaces with a fine stone.

    Best accomplished with a sear jig, as it is very difficult to maintain the exact angles you need without one.

    I assume you have neither the tools or any experiance doing trigger jobs, or you wouldn't have ask the question.

    So I'd suggest you find a gunsmith to do it.

    How many times do you have to post about it before you figure out that the answer is "NO" unless you're an experienced gunsmith with the proper tools, in which case you wouldn't be posting about it here.

    I see it's only his second post and like some, may have lost track of the previous.

    My experience with the both of mine has been that a thorough and proper cleaning went a long way towards improving the nasty triggers on each of them.
