Trigger Pull getting Lighter?

I have a new Aegis II and ultra carry II in the stable right now. The UC was purchased used and teh Aegis was new. When I got the Aegis the pull was right around 4lbs 7 oz. The trigger on the UC is right about 4 lbs 11-13 oz on my lyman scale. In shooting them lately I noticed that the trigger pull was seeming heavier on the UC than before. Pulled out the scale and the UC is the same but now the Aegis is about 3 lbs 13-14 oz. Is it normal for a trigger to settle down this much? I am thinking I will probably have something done to one or both since I would like the pull consistant between the 2. My first choice would be to have the UC worked on since I would like to also get rid of the creep but I am hesitant thinking that the Aegis trigger is getting in the unsafe to carry range, especially if it gets any ligher. The Aegis is really nice and crisp. Any ideas?

Thanks!

I would check it again. But...personally a trigger in the high 3's in not unsafe IMO. It's all about personal preference.

My last 3 SA Ruger revolvers each have a 3 1/4 lb TP and I wouldn't want it any other way..

Thanks for the responses. I feel pretty confortable with it as (providing the trigger does not get too much ligher lighter) That is the mystery to me. I did check it again, as well as the UC and my Walther PPQ (a bit harder to check with the trigger saftey). They both came in as before. JMS I too like my revolvers to have a lighter trigger. Particulary the SA Freedom Ams 83 which is about 3 even.
I have done some trigger work on Smiths, Ruger revolvers, Glocks etc so I am confortable with my trigger scale and how to use it properly to get repeatable results.
I have never done any work on a 1911 so I am not quite sure how the springs, and surfaces relate to each other.

I would call that "perfect". Some smiths/custom shops refuse to go any lighter than 3.5#. I say to hell with them and find another.

My S&W revolver (DA/SA) is 2-1/2# on SA. Love it. Too light for a semi-auto, IMO.
