Post-2008 Win Mod 70 trigger

I've got a lovely new Model 70 with the new (post-2008) MOA trigger. It came from the factory with a 3.5# trigger. This was about the low-limit on the adjustment, so I ordered a lighter spring that was supposed to bring the pull down even farther.

After my local gun wizard installed it, we got a consistent, crisp, no-creep or over-travel pull of 3#. He was frustrated. I was frustrated (thank goodness the new spring was well under $10).

I'd like to bring the pull down to about 1.5#. I looked into a Jewel replacement but it is not available for the post-2008 models (called them and they have no plans for one either).

Does anyone know of an after-market trigger specifically for post-2008 Model 70s I might try?
