Which Trigger for Hawkeye?

I’ve been shooting my Hawkeye African at paper quit a bit lately. I’ve decided that the trigger pull is just too much. Feels like 3-4 lbs and crisp, but would really like 1-2 lbs for range and maybe 3lbs for hunting.....So what drop in trigger will get me there?

Timney makes one. Be aware it takes a fair amount of metal filing and some stock fitting.

Or take it to a gunsmith and have the trigger adjusted. It's a simple design and a local smith here would lighten Ruger M77 triggers for $20-$25. I asked for it to be 2.75lb on my Mk. II and he hit it on the nose.

Later, I simply replaced the spring in my Hawkeye .223 Rem and it brought it down to 2 1/2 lbs.

I would do either of those before spending much more on a replacement that then had to be custom fit.
