Buckmark sear spring flip trick (Heggis) (?)

So does anybody here have experience with the "sear spring flip trick"/Heggis Flip for the Buckmark? I like the sound of a 20 minute DIY project that lightens the trigger by 50%.

The only thing I would be concerned about here is overtravel. It's a really simple procedure that is easily reversed, so I guess there's not too much to lose from giving it a go. I'm just curious about others experience with the ol Heggis Flip.

For those of you who don't know about the Heggis Flip and would like to know how to take your Buckmark trigger to 2lbs, here is a link to a step by step:

I've done it on several of my Buckmarks. Works great, no issues after thousands of rounds.

Best regards.

Same as above, the "flip" is amazing and I've had absolutely no problems what so ever. Trust us, you'll love it!

You'll Love It!

I performed the flip on my Stainless Camper and ended up with a pull a whisker over 2 lbs. If you get more ambitious after that, you can order a Browning trigger w/ over-travel stop. I performed both upgrades and the result is amazing!

I guess I'm in the minority here, but I love the trigger on my Buck Mark in its stock form. It's plenty light enough for me.

Huge mistake.

For those of you with new Buckmarks, I'm not so sure the Heggis flip is a good idea. Here is my experience.
