Nice comparison. Do you have any duplicates to see what variations might exist within same models?

I took a Yugo K98k rework, and polished up the mating surfaces on the trigger, receiver, and cocking piece. Lowered trigger pull by 1-2 lbs and made for a much smoother experience. Didn't have to do anything to the springs or replace the trigger, just a little polishing.

I used to have comparisons for several M93 and M03 Turkish Mausers. If I remember correctly, they varied as much as one pound.
