I don't shoot the 700 that often, so I decided to take it out today. The trigger is a pig (apparently the factory trigger is in the 8 - 10lb range for liability reasons).

Has anyone had work done on theirs? I'm in San Jose and would prefer to find someone close.

Not to step on 1911whore's post...

Look on the web for instructions. The 700 trigger is very easy to do by yourself.

Of course if you can have someone professional do the trigger job, he'll do it right the first time.

I did my '700's trigger following the directions found on the Internet and found it easy. Got mine right the first shot and it's staid there ever since. Not hard to do if you're all all skilled.

As it happens I have a few 700s and just bought a PSS in 7 Rem Mag. There are 3 adjustable screws and 2 springs that determine how good or bad your trigger pull can be. There is alot of on line info.

Basically the front top screw controls overtravel, the front bottom applies spring pressure to the trigger and the screw on the rear of the trigger unit controls sear engagement. You may or may not want to replace the standard springs with softer aftermarket ones, I usually do.

Adjusting overtravel is pretty easy. The trick - & the reason you may want to use 1911's talents - lies in adjusting those two other screws, striking a safe balance between sear engagement & spring pressure on the trigger.

It's not brain surgery, but it definitely requires an understanding of the parts and a bit of talented touch.

The other part I didn't mention is that this is set in an accuracy international stock. So, is this going to require the disassembly of the entire stock? I'm going to guess this isn't brain surgery, but I wasn't the one who assembled it, so I don't know what's involved.

Definitely have to remove the action from the stock. Should be held in place by two screws. Separate the barreled action, trigger guard & stock and you'll see the trigger housing attached to the receiver.
