I did the same with the spring, ended up also using another very light spring inside the replacement spring to balance it out to around 20oz.
I found there is a point if the spring is too light, the sear may not catch the striker reliably, but I also did the stoning of the parts, and shortening the step.

I did just the Volquartsen Target Sear replacement on my older 22 Mag, and it brought the pull down enough to make me extra cautious carrying it in the woods. It's been several years now since I've shot it. It was before I had a pull gauge, and wasn't my most accurate magnum, so it's been in the safe since then. I should really pull it out and measure the pull and check accuracy again. It's a well-made rifle that deserves to be shot.

I recently got a .22 with the screw in barrel, blue with fiber stock. The trigger was heavy so I did the Volquartsen sear and spring and its like a different gun. A friend did this to his and the new sear would not work with his safety. He just used the new spring with old sear and it came down nicely.

I'm at 12oz with my Timney trigger in my RPRR. I love the light weight for target shooting.

You can always stone and if get an Oops then go w/ Timney.

Couple yrs ago I asked my gunsmith about a trigger job on a handgun. His response "my lawyer says I dont do triggers." OK-thank you.

Yes. VQ Sear did help, but I was still pulling my shots. The Rifle Basix Trigger solved that problem.

I apologizes for the delay.
