Why would you want to make is less? Its only 3 lbs.. but I guess you could do it by replacing the main trigger spring with a lighter pull one... but you dont want too much of a weaker spring otherwise the trigger wont return fast enough.

there are a few ways to lighen and shorten the pull but ill just send you to M98 Center some of the trigger jobs are cheap and dont always work but that will happen if you dont have a profesional do the work for ya.

Skill doesn't require batteries.

take the trigger spring off and stetch the sear spring slightly, this helps more so on the 2x trigger. oh and dont worry about it not coming back when u cock it itll come back every time without sacrifing perfomance

Fortunately for us who own the Model 98, the trigger is a relatively simple mechanism. It pivots on one pin and when pushed in, it moves up and clicks the sear, which releases the rear bolt. Now, the easiest MOD to do to the trigger is also one of the best working. If you look at how the sear rests, when the rear bolt comes back, the sear moves into a slot and is then caught not by the slot, but by another pin at its front. If we can make this pin a little thicker, we can make the sear barely sit in the rear bolt. Then, the trigger pull will be extremely light So, what you can do is remove the front pin that the sear rests on. Then, take some scotch tape and wrap it around the pin about 5 or six times. Then take a knife and try to cut the tape so that the pin rests fine, but the tape is not caught in the body holes. Reinsert the pin. You should notice the sear resting barely in the rear bolt. Put your gun back together, and you will never regret it. You can adjust the amount of tape so that you can adjust how much the sear rests in the rear bolt. Be careful though, if you put in too much tape, the sear will not grab the bolt at all and the gun will not work (it will go full auto and be a very bad thing). So, now shoot much faster and enjoy your modified trigger.
