Any information regarding smoothing, lightening, tuning, adjusting the extremely heavy trigger pull on the Kahr Thompsons?

Any help/advice would be appreciated - Thanks - feinc

Some folks say “heavy” when they mean “creepy”. I don’t know if this is the case here of not.

Through careful balancing of spring tensions and attention to engaging surface finish, the pull weight can be reduced (lbs. required to release) and smoothed, but this design will not allow the let off to be “crisp”.

I liken them to shooting DA revolvers.
