Browning do it yourself stock trigger job?

I recently purchased an A-bolt in 300 win mag for a medium range deer rig and was wondering if any one knows how hard it is to adjust the triggers on the newer Brownings? I admit I am as far from a gunsmith as you can get,but the manual did make it sound pretty simple??? I had a local gunsmith do the trigger on my 300 rum sendero,but thought it would be nice to learn for myself this time what do you guys think?

I believe it's just a matter of turning a screw in or out for adjustment on the A-bolts. I have one in a 300wsm and they claimed that you could adjust the trigger down to 3lbs or so and I couldn't get it below 4lbs. It's a very simple process, if it will go down to where you want it.

Thanks for the help I will give it a try, If I can get it to 3 pounds I would be happy with that for now! Rob Anderson

I doubt you will get it to 3lbs. My abolt II would only go to 4-4 1/2lbs. I purchased a Timney replacement spring set and now have a less than 3lb pull. Replacing the spring is very simple. Push out a pin (easy to remove), remove the factory spring, insert the timney spring, replace the pin and adjust to suit your needs. Timeny includes easy to follow instructions.

The spring set does seem to be about the best choice.I can shoot it like it is but really dont want to!I was going to put the scope on this weekend but sounds like the new spring is worth the little extra attention first! I appreciate the help! Rob, AKA The Oregonhunter

300-GTS
You can order the Trigger Spring Kit (2 springs: 2lb and a 3lb) directly from Timney or from Brownells. Brownells' part number is 883-000-003. $20.00. The spring set fits Abolt (including Abolt II), Medallion and Micro-Medallion. I believe the price is the same from Timney direct. Brownells: 1/800/741-0015. I seem to recall that Lock, Stock & Barrell carried the spring set also but I don't have their catalog at present. LS&B's price, I believe, was lower.
