Thanks for the very good pictures. Was it new or used? Looks new. Polishing the sear should make it much smoother and somewhat lighter.

Your trigger looks like mine with the earliest s/n -- has the sear spring adjusting screw and locking nut, the one I got down to 1.5 lbs. You can try loosening the adjusting nut and loosening or tightening the screw to see what effect it has. I did this plus added shims between the rear of the trigger group and receiver to reduce the amount of sear engagement with the bolt.

BTW I use an old, dull, magnetized awl to remove the e-clips and a magnetized flat-tip screwdriver to push them back on and have not lost one so far.

Thanks for the tips, it was used but looked to have been shot maybe once. The factory set trigger is terrible, but I really like this rifle.

I have a MkII, pre-E receiver gun just like yours. I love it and have found it to be very accurate and have had good luck with lots of different ammunition.

I followed the sticky in the facts and fixes about trigger shims, as outlined by TMG earlier here. It works and is a real improvement. I also own three MkIIs, and had a fourth, but traded one away. They are great rifles to tinker with because they are so simple.

You might also look into polishing up the bolt. There are some posts in here somewhere about that too.

As someone mentioned earlier, the magazines can be problematic. I have never had any problems with them, but others haven't been so lucky. Another common problem is that the extractor spring can give out after a while leaving you with empty cases stuck in the chamber. It's an easy fix, and Savage will (or used to) send you the part.
