This is what l found, l did this mod to Rem. 788 in the 70s the 541 trigger is very similar to the 788, l would take the trigger apart to see where l was going to drill to make sure that is the right spot very simple trigger.

You only need to drill in the back for the back screw.

here is a link from RFC

That's the diagram I found that led to think I could simply add that back screw. May have to rescale it if the the housing isn't identical in size but that shoud be pretty easy to figure out.

That one screw in th back is all that is needed, which will give full control of sears engagement.
To lighten the weight of pull you would have to remove a coil or two you can only do so much for safety go slowly there.

There is another mod. that could be done, l would take the second option if l was doing this an extra spring would have to be added or maybe both springs changed to get things balanced out if this is beyond what you are capable of doing stick with the first drawing simple.

These do help some.

Do as grg mentioned above along with one of these. Be sure to loosen the forward set screw and put a support behind the trigger housing before driving out the cross pin or you risk breaking off the lug on the action that hold the trigger assembly in place. I am serious! It has happened to many owners of these rimfires and 788 centerfires!
