Trigger pull is regulated by a spring that runs along the right side of the trigger. That spring is a tempered straight wire, not a coil. One end of the straight spring fits into a tiny screw with a hole down the center. To reduce trigger pull, screw the screw in a quarter turn at a time and test trigger pull after each quarter turn. To increase trigger pull, screw it out. At the opposite end of the straight spring, you'll see a tiny trigger arm resting against the spring. It is critical that the spring apply tension against that tiny arm. If it doesn't, the rifle will fire when bumped. After you have adjusted the trigger pull, you need to test to make sure the rifle will not fire when bumped. I use a rubber mallet and whack the side of the receiver.

Below is a link to instructions and a diagram.

I adjusted the trigger pull on my 10ml in accordance with some of the directions posted here already and it works well. I think that if you want more than this out of it you may want to check brownells and look at the rifle basix trigger.

i fiddled with mine a bit.

got it breaking nicely, but very rarely, will fail to cock the hammer when i work the bolt.

doesn't seem to be a safety issue, so i haven't bothered to fix it.
