Lighter Trigger Spring For Gunsite Scout

I recently bought a used but unfired Gunsite Scout 308. Really like the rifle except for the trigger. It's got a clean break, but heavier than I like. Is there a spring kit to address this? Thanks!

I got a Spec Tech trigger for mine. It's about $100 with shipping and it's adjustable and has a lifetime warranty. I have mine set about 1.75# and it's a great trigger.

I ended up getting a spring from Ernie the gunsmith, and polishing the sear and trigger mating surfaces. Ended up with a crisp 2 1/2 pound trigger. I'm pretty happy with it for a hunting trigger.
