Question Cleaned and installed bolt release mod to my 10/22 and now my trigger sucks

Took her all the way down for the first time since I owned her(20ish years) and installed the bolt release mod. And now my trigger feels about 8-9lbs vs the 4-5lbs it felt before. Any ideas how to get it back? Should I take it back apart and do some polishing with the dremel? Or will replacing the hammer with the the Volq target hammer bring the pull weight down to 3ish lbs?

Interesting. That mod should not have changed the trigger weight. Is it an aftermarket bolt release or a modded OEM one?

It's the aftermarket Volquarsten.

sorry but you messed up when you installed your auto bolt open. your trigger didnt have to come out to put it in and should have had no difference in your trigger.
not to sound mean but you get to take it apart and do it again. you'll find out what you did wrong. 10/22 trigger is simple.

it sounds like something is binding and making your trigger harder to pull.means something is rubbing inside that wasnt before.

dont feel bad i had to do mine twice once cause i was rushing and didnt take my time.it should all slide in easy and nice.

It shouldn't have changed the trigger pull at all, but will highly suggest ordering that part above. Did wonders to my 10/22.

I bet, maybe when I build a 10/22 for accuracy.

I pulled the gun completely apart to clean it. Everything functions fine too. I will pull it apart again and polish it and see if that makes any difference.
