Step 1 was simple enough, stock off, trigger guard off and trigger out.
Step 2 was where it started to get interesting, the S-32 pin would not come out to remove the safety bar. Heat, brass drifts and my carefully rationed patience would not work.
Plan B, fit the trigger under the safety bar. By filing the underside corner on the top of the Kepplinger and backing the adjustment screw all the way out I was able to wrangle the trigger into position. Done. Not really the trigger was nothing like my 7x57, the pull was gritty. Trigger back out and out with a black surgical stone to polish up the top of the trigger and underside of the sear. File the underside of the safety catch to be able to adjust the trigger/sear and trigger back in. Reassemble and adjust the trigger and finally I am happy with the results.
Overall not a simple job but it was worth the effort to get a nice crisp trigger.

Sounds somewhat like my experience. I installed Kepplinger trigger in three of my #1's. On all I took the Kepplinger trigger and put the top rounded part to my hard felt buffing wheel and put a mirror shine polish on in, and then stoned and polished the under side of the sear where that part of the Kepplinger rotates. The result was a very smooth and fairly light unset pull. I had no problems removing any pins to make the installation.

On two tropical #1's I removed the stock two screw Ruger triggers and installed the three screw Moyer triggers. The Moyer is a cast steel trigger and the ones I got were extremely rough, so bring out the needle files and smooth them down, I actually removed the grooves in the trigger face and made them smooth, and slightly angled for a right handed shooter, like a couple of high grade double barrel shotguns I have. I then polished, and blued and finally installed and adjusted too about a 2.5 lb pull.

I have not had an experience with the JARD trigger but understand their products are top shelf. If I had to do another I probably would go that route.
