I bought an old model Ruger M77 RSI with the tang safety from a Calgunner recently. The carbine has an extremely heavy trigger pull. I noticed a tiny screw in the underside of the trigger viewed from the trigger guard. Is the factory trigger adjustable and if so, how? I love this little carbine but the 10lb trigger pull has got to go!

Take the action out of the stock and look to see what the screw does.
Could be overtravel or pull weight.
Not likely to be sear engagement.

If you're still not sure after taking it out, take a picture and post it.

Might want to get a Timmney trigger. I think the screw is for engagement not pull weight.

There is a sear engagement screw on the older M77's, but it's not accessible until the stock is off.

The adjustment is crude and not likely to give you the results you want.

Check out this link. The underside trigger screw is pull weight adjustment, but there's more involved:
