MKIV trigger pull

What would be a good modification to reduce the trigger pull on my new MKIV? I have looked at kits from TandemKross and Volquartsen and I'm not sure I want to tackle this myself.

Contacted Volquartsen. It would cost me $65 and $15 return shipping to have their accurizing kit installed in my MKIV. I assume it would also cost the price of the kit, which is $105.
Thinking it over.

I installed the Volquartzen accurizing kit on my Mark III. The trigger pull is amazing for serious target shooting. I found YouTube videos much better than reading instructions and using my imagination to fill in the blanks. I am a complete novice and was able to do it, but $80 may be worth considering to avoid frustration and have peace of mind it was done right. I am a fan of the accurizing kit.

I watched a great YouTube video many, many times. I now have a Volquartsen kit on order. The kit must be very popular because it is on back order.
I don't think it will be that tough. I just installed a Sweet Pea trigger in my LCP and I think it was worse than the kit for the MKIV will be.

If you're not comfortable doing these things yourself, a good modification is to take it to a gunsmith.

This is the best video I've found for the VQ Trigger Kit install.

I had Volquartsen install their accurizing kit on my Mark III and it is phenomenal.

I want to know my weapon, so I'll be doing the work myself. The Volquatsen kit should be here by Friday. I can't wait. Also, I don't trust others to do the work to my standards. It's the same for my Scuba Equipment and even my Van. They can do the messy crap, like oil changes, but I'll do everything else.
