Beretta 96 Trigger

Anyone know how to lighten the trigger for a Beretta 96? I've heard that one is supposed to use the trigger spring from the Beretta 92 DAO, but I'm not sure if I can count on that advice.... so let me know. Thanks!

How long have you had the gun? I usually suggest some firing/dry firing before deciding that the trigger needs work.

I've had it a couple of months or so. I love the gun, but I would like to make the trigger lighter.

Yes, installing a mainspring from a D model will make it lighter and smoother. I've done it to 2 of my guns and no light strikes yet.
