A gunsmith.

(It's an overtravel screw, not a trigger adjustment......)

What needs "adjusting"? Is there an issue with it?

The Kimbers come with a very good, smooth, light pull trigger that breaks at a very enjoyable 4 pounds. Are you looking to increase the pull weight? Going to a lighter weight could cause several problems. Not the least of which is legal issues, should you ever have any kind of incident with it.

I wonder if he is referring to trigger "creep" There is an adjustment screw located
in the trigger. A little allen wrench will fix you right up.

I think he is referring to the adjustment screw.

That said I shot my buddies 10mm Camp Guard the other day. It's always been a shooter but he recently had a trigger job done on it. That came out very nicely...except for the fact with the recoil of the 10mm I had not one but two unintentional double taps with it.

I imagine if it were my gun and with some practice it would be okay...but it was disconcerting none the less.
