There are a few things you can do to lighten the trigger pull on your AR-15.

  • One is to replace the factory trigger with an aftermarket one that is designed to be lighter.
  • Another is to adjust the trigger spring tension by turning the adjustment screw on the back of the trigger.
  • And finally, you can also lighten the pull weight by filing down or polishing the contact surfaces of the trigger and hammer.

However, it’s important to note that any modification you make to your gun should be done with caution and only by a qualified gunsmith. Improper adjustment or modification could result in accidental discharge and serious injury.

One is to swap out the standard trigger for a lighter one.

You can also adjust the spring tension on the hammer and sear, or add a buffer to the recoil system.

One is to use a lighter recoil spring. Another is to use a smaller diameter hammer pin. And finally, you can use a reduced power firing pin spring. All of these modifications will lighten the trigger pull, but they will also decrease the rifle’s reliability and increase the risk of accidental discharge. So if you decide to make any of these modifications, be sure to practice safe gun handling procedures at all times.
