I believe your trigger is the same as the 581. If so, it can be taken down to around 18oz safely. That is where mine is. When I need to, I can put mine back to 2lbs. You will need a #4-5 spring kit from brownells. It's the same diameter spring that is in the factory trigger, but brownells is a bit softer. To start, you will need to cut the new spring at least 3 coils longer. Then try it and work from there. It helps to polish the sear and trigger, but there is not much need to take any off.
If you try this, be sure and reassemble the gun and slam the bolt closed or smack the butt of the stock with a (rubber) mallet to make sure its safe. Do this several times.
