The trigger on my Isaac Haines is really not all that bad. It has a crisp release and no take up slack. Its just not quite as light as I would prefer nor as good as a previous build. I had thinned the sear return spring on initial assembly and that is not the cause. Un-cocked the trigger pull is quite nice. However, at full cock its a bit stiff. My suspicion is the placement of the trigger bar on the sear arm is not quite optimal. But what to do about it now after assembly is the question.

Any suggestion from you more experience builders would be appreciated.

Unpin the trigger, re-drill through the upper forward corner, and pin the trigger there. Ignore the old pivot point, poor geometry for a trigger pivot.
