You want to be careful with anything that reduces the hammer spring which can lead to light primer strikes and failure to fire. There is a guy on ARFCOM that will take your existing trigger & $45 and tune it for you. I had him do a batch for me and it's really nice for the money. It's an easy enough job to do it yourself to if you know the grind points and you have the time.

I picked one up from brownells for next to nothing and gave it a try. Seems to work pretty well. Came with directions on how to install and polish some of the internals. After taking my time and following the instructions i was pretty impressed by how the trigger feels for the $10. The instructions do say to stay away from certain types of ammo to avoid problems with the light strike issue. I've run about 150 rounds of Remington UMC through my gun with out a problem. For a cheap $10 experiment i'm pretty happy with it.

This is the Bill Springfield trigger job. $32 for 4 lb and $46 for 3 lb, and you send him the trigger, hammer, disconnector, and associated springs. There are a couple of threads on it over at arfcom. You can contact him at wspringfield (a) comcast.net for the info.
I'm getting ready to send him a pair of triggers for the 4 lb job.
