Good southwest PA gunsmith for Rem. 700 trigger swap?

Picked up a mid 80's 700 ADL. 30-06 today on trade, and it's a beautiful, classic gun but the trigger is a bit gritty and the safety takes considerable force to move it into "firing" position. I took it apart and cleaned it up after I got home, and noticed that maybe there is some debris or rust thst had worked in there from previous years. I cleaned with Rem Oil and all that good stuff but still stiff and the trigger freaks and grinds right before it actually breaks. I'm thinking about getting a $100 or so Timney trigger, but just would like a qualified gunsmith to install. Unless I find it is easy enough to install, I see some are. Any recommendations for gunsmiths or easy to install trigger assemblies? I live outside of Pittsburgh, thanks.

I have installed Timmny triggers. They are fairly easy, follow the instructions.

The older 700 triggers are actually very good if set up properly.
You could call Neil Jones and check with him about it before just buying a new one.
In any event don't just go throwing it away.

I believe Csars closed two months ago. At least that's what I was told. They did good work.

If you wanted the trigger worked... Dicks in north hills ask for chuck stuwart not sure if he works there still or not been a few years.
Or two best choices... You have dave bruno in springdale or economy gunsmithing out on 65.
I installed a timney trigger in my 700 it was very easy after watching a video two or three times... but for the cost it prob be cheaper to have a smith work your trigger you have now.

Thanks for all the responses, I actually made this post before I even bothered to see if there were videos, and yes, looks simple to install. I've never been one to swap out triggers, as I've never had a problem with factory triggers, but this one is not right. The safety is ridiculously hard to disengage and the trigger sounds like something is grinding before it breaks. I think it is rusty internally for some reason
