    Welcome. What does your trigger measure? If it's within specs or 5-7 lbs SA & 8 to 13 lbs DA, probably not much can be done other than proper lube & continued use. You could try some KG-10 Dry Lube on the sear. Double a pipe cleaner, dip it in the KG-10 & slip it down in front of the cocked hammer (unloaded pistol of course) then ride the hammer down, squeezing the KG-10 onto the sear.

    I have used it on all my pistols & just did a test on a new Rock Island 1911. I'd put 130 rounds thru it, cleaning it twice & spraying Rem Oil Dry Lube down onto the sear. This smoothed the grittiness out of the trigger, but only improved the trigger pull from 5-1/4 lbs to 5 lbs. When I cleaned it this last time, I used KG-10, dry fired a few times & trigger pull is down to 41/4 lbs.! Also, I suggest you join us at Bersa Chat. I don't recall anyone having it done, but a lot of Bersa owners over they & someone may have tried it.

    My wife has a Thunder 380 with 4 lb. pull for SA & 9-1/2 lb. pull for DA, which are at or below minimum advertised weights. I didn't have my trigger pull gauge at the time, so I don't know what it was before.

    None of the gun stores around me handle it, so I get mine from Midways USA. You may find it locally. One caution, the stuff goes on black & while it will wash off your hands, it will NOT wash out of your clothes.
