Brand new Ruger Hawkeye stainless synthetic in a 308. Love the rifle hate the lawyer trigger. I read an artical on tuning the trigger. It seems easy enough that I am going to do this myself. Just a few questions. Is the removal of metal done by hand, and if so what is the best tool to use? I read one guy uses a knife stone, but failed to mention what grits. I want to keep everything square and true so are hand tools the best way to go? How polished does the finish have to be? I look at it this way, if I mess it up, I will end up buying an after market trigger and problem is still solved. I am shooting for a trigger pull of about 3 lbs. Off the suject, but down the line I am looking to get a thumbhole stock, either a laminated or composite, does anyone know where to pick one up that fit this action? Sold every rifle I have ever owned, this one is going to go to my son when he is old enough. Hope he doesn't grow up to fast!
