I just got a new single-stage ALG trigger tuned by Geissele for $70 and put a red hammer spring (Brownells) instead of the on it comes with for more positive ignition/reliability.
The Result: I freaking love it! My guess is <5.5 lbs now and smooth. VERY smooth. I found the link. its cheaper now. Highly recommend it. The "Tuned By Geissele" maybe made the difference.
I installed the ACT as well. Love it. 65.00 and installed in 10 minutes:
I did the same as well. I thought about sending it back to Windham. They offered to look over the trigger and make some adjustments for me. But I figured I'd just have a bit of fun, polish it myself, and learn something in the process. It is very easy to get to these parts out and if a real repair is needed, I can do it myself now.
Well, I polished up the trigger and hammer as well as I could but the trigger was not improved very much.
I want to say, the trigger was likely fine for what it was intended for, just not great- probably on the high end of milspec.
Doing it myself was fun too. In the end I dropped in the new ACT and love it. A little lube and a dab of grease on the engagement area and it's really nice. Really nice take up and a break at an estimated 6 pounds.
Engagement areas are polished really bright. Camera couldn't get as good an image as I wanted, and everything has a "slick" feel.
I'm probably going to Duracoat the trigger pad black. So far I'm fine with the slight contrast.
