Turn your rifle upside-down ,look between the breechblock and the trigger, there is a small Allen head set screw, this is your trigger adjustment, itís close quarters so you will have to modify an Allen wrench to adjust the trigger.
PS there is a trigger stop built into the frame donít let it interfere with your trigger adjustment.  Ledball

This is from the October 1978 American Rifleman, p.67, NRA test article on the Wickliffe '76 rifle:

"The trigger is adjustable for weight of pull by varying the sear  engagement with a vertical screw at the bottom of the hammer. Pull of the sample rifle was adjustable from 4 1/2 to 25 lbs.  Overtravel is adjusted by a screw in the rear tang behind the trigger."......
"Altogether, about 800 Wickliffe single-shot rifles have been produced since production began in 1976.".....
"The first 128 rifles had an inertia firing pin and no half-cock notch on the hammer.  In early rifles, the trigger adjustment screw was located at the rear of the hammer and the trigger overtravel screw in the lever forward of the trigger."
