Well I took the plunge today after firing my Traditions DeerHunter.  I took the lock off and cleaned and lubed it I also adjusted the tumbler slightly the Factory had it completely backed out talk about a heavy trigger whew.  I tightened it down about 2 turns the half cock notch holds and the hammer won't drop no matter how much pressure I apply to  it unless I pull the trigger. However it breaks a lot cleaner.  I also lubed the contact points with some tw-25 lube.  Any thing else anybody can suggest please do.

I'd never have tried this without all the info on this board.

by hand it normally is a lot harder to get them to go off. The trigger bar pushes a lot more evenly, making it feel easier.

If the trigger pull is still to heavy, adjust a little more. I normally put teflon tape around that tiny pain in the rear end screw so it stays in place.

Scroll down to page 6 in this users manual. I know its CVA, but the locks are very close, especially that little screw adjuster. Theres some info on adjusting.
