    Very Heavy Trigger Pull—any fix?

    Hello! I’ll start off by saying that I apologize if this has already been posted somewhere, I’m new to the forums!

    With that out of the way, I wanted to see if a very heavy, but crisp trigger pull was normal for the Garand. I tried doing some research online and found people saying similar things about the M1 carbine, but wasn’t unable to find anything specifically on the Garand. Granted, it’s a 75+ year old mechanism, so I didn’t expect it to be super light, but I was curious as to if anyone has any tips to be able to help lighten the pull a bit.

    Ultimately, it’s not a huge deal—it’s just a heavy trigger pull after all— I just thought I’d try my luck here.

    Any concurrence/advice would be very helpful, so thank you ahead of time!

    have you completely disassembled the trigger group, cleaned each part then properly lubricated it?

      I have not disassembled the trigger group yet, but I was thinking about it yesterday. I’ll see if I can find a good tutorial, still a relatively new owner so better safe than sorry, and then I’ll let you know if it helps.

    I would say clean and grease is the answer.

        Well I did 2 main fixes:
        1) the stock was redone by the CMP, and I found out it was an issue that the trigger was rubbing part of it, so I sanded it down a little.
        2) completely disassembled, cleaned, and greased the whole trigger group.
        The final result? A trigger no more than maybe 6(ish) pounds. Huge improvement from the probably 20+ That it was. Thank you all for your help and suggestions!
