What, precisely did you do to lighten the trigger?

If you changed the spring- that shouldn't have allowed any side-side movement. If you ground down the sear to 'tune' the trigger pull- the trigger will get a bit sloppy and needs to have epoxy or a hardening putty applied to reduce this.

If you only changed the spring, is it possible you moved the trigger's pivot pin out of its slot or something? Does the gun still fire?

Here's a picture of a 2240 trigger (don't know whose it is, unfortunately):





Looking at the picture- it doesn't appear that there is a whole lot that can cause the trigger to move side to side except mis-positioning and/or incorrect reassembly of the casing. Looks like alot could be done to cause the trigger to wobble front-back depending on what might be ground down or changed. I don't have a 2240 laying about to look for sure at the moment.

what likly happened is there are two very small thin washers that act as bushings that are slightly curved to take up slack (they do a poor job anyway) if your from canada there is a guy that sells aftermarket trigger and polts tnat have little to no slack or side to side play

I tore apart my 2240 this morning to work on the trigger a bit and I only had one spring washer on the whole trigger assembly. It was a rudimentary up grade at best but it helped out a bit anyways. I might have a couple laying around that I could pull out of an old reel somewhere to put in and see how that feels.
