Here is a picture i found when moving threads the other day, showing the relocation of the 52C trigger pivot pin. I have not done this with a Winchester trigger but i tried the mod with my Kimber 82G. The Kimber pull went front 2 pounds to 6oz on my Lyman digital guage... but i did get a bit of creep with the Kimber.
TAKE IT FOR WHAT IT IS WORTH.... joe

trigger

From my experience that is not quite the proper location for the trigger pin, but that is the general idea. I did draw it up but do not have my records available at present.
As Joe pointed out you will get slight additional creep. You give up one thing for another.

Canjar

Good evening, If your trigger is an LP-52, I have the paper work from Canjar, I just can't lay my hands on it at this moment, but when I do, I'll have to find someone to help me get it on these pages. The LP, has a thin wire that runs top to bottom in that thin groove, on the right side. That wire when pushed upwards, from inside the trigger guard, lowers the sear or, if the trigger is held back, holds the sear down, allowing the bolt to be removed. Is that wire there? I'll effort getting the Canjar instructions put into a form that I can post here. Cheers Charles

pic

Joe,

Its not my pic. I was only making a comment on pin placement.
I think Karl has been at it for a very long time and I would sure credit him. The basic idea can be used on some other triggers. I was surprised with the "B" trigger conversion.
Its hard to adjust the introduced creep out. This is a four lever trigger and sear engagement is two levers away and once adjusted properly no adjustment to it will effect the trigger movement. The gain in movement is all in the pin placement. When the trigger was designed it basically had no movement (Micro-Motion) and was for the 3 pound rule. To alter the pin placement will alter WOP but you give up slight creep because now you must move it a slightly longer amount to get it to do the same thing.

In a simple two lever trigger creep is easily adjusted out with sear engagement (Rem 40X trigger) multi levers are a horse of another color.

In an original Kenyon trigger (Not a modified Win) its of 3 lever design with the break engagement surface on the trigger lever itself and the middle lever and is adjustable.

Just to clarify what was already said, here is a pic of the original Kenyon trigger, not the modified Winchester piece.

Actually all the Canjars for the 52-C have that release wire loop. No need to remove action from stock if its there. As Charles mentioned it is a wire loop hanging down inside the trigger guard up close to the stock in front of the trigger. If its not there one will have to be made.

trigger

Yes, the factory did make a change to the design of what Winchester calls the trigger lever. Its the long middle lever through the middle of the housing and not the lever on the trigger as the name implies.
Originally it was pivot pinned up where the trigger finger makes contact.
Winchester discontinued that pivot point and dropped a leg down in front of the trigger proper and pinned the pivot at the lower end of the trigger housing.
This change gave the formally straight shaped lever a somewhat "L" shape. There are no drawing of the later design that I'm aware of.
This change can be noted from a pic of the outside and placement of the pin. The trigger above is a "C" style.
