What Trigger Pull Weight Do You Like For Your Marlin Levergun?

Hi all,
Well, the wife was away with our daughter and MIL for the afternoon and I figured that I would just kick-back, with a little help from Jim Beam, and do something different. I dug out a RCBS trigger pull scale that I had bought a number of years ago (new) and decided to measure the trigger pulls on my Marlins. I didn't hang weight off the scale to calibrate it.

Of the 23 Marlins, the ten that I had retrofitted with the WWG triggers consistently "broke" at 2.5 lbs. The remaining ones that I had "stoned" (the sears) broke at 3.2-3.7 lbs.

These are hunting rifles, but I do a lot of paper-punching with them as I like to do a lot of shooting during the non-hunting season.

In your opinion do the trigger pull weights sound OK to you? Your thoughts?
