One of the experts on 742's is Ray Gregg owner of Bear Creek Guns in Seleah, WA. You might chat with him.

Take a Remington factory Hammer Spring & cut a coil off of it while checking trigger pull weight.

Bob's Gun Parts in Ohio , sells spring kits and trigger jobs . Their Patriot sear spring is a big improvment over the factory unit . I use them and like them ! The hammer spring isn't the one you want to modify , all that would do is cause light strikes !
