Save your money just take the stock spring out and cut it flush with the top of the adj. screw that will give you an adj. of 3/4 lb. to around 51/2 lb.

Re: Browning do it yourself stock trigger job?

Is it just as easy to cut down the stock spring as it is to replace it?

If so, it sounds like it would get me in the ball park. Im not going to be too picky. I just want it good enough for a basic deer rig.

either way, I appreciate the help guys!!! Rob

Re: Browning do it yourself stock trigger job?

I had a Browning Stainless Steel Stalker with BOSS in 300 Win Mag. I went through this whole deal. First adjusted it down as far as it would go, then replaced the spring with another, etc.

One thing to consider is what shape you want it to be in if you sell it some day in the future.

I replaced the spring so that when I went to sell it I could put the old one back in and have it be a stock factory trigger again.

Some people may be concerned about a trigger that a non-gun smith modified and may not want to buy it.

Just a thought ....

mechanicaly length is an important factor in springs, not just weight.

Re: Browning do it yourself stock trigger job?

While it's a bit more expensive than options being discussed here, I got a Moyer's replacement trigger for mine. Weight of pull wasn't my only problem--it had too much creep.

This trigger is fully adjustable for weight, creep and overtravel. I'm very happy with it. I installed it myself, but if you aren't mechanically inclined it might be a good idea to have a gunsmith do it for you.

Re: Browning do it yourself stock trigger job?

I am not sure what he charges, but Kevin Knight at High Performance Gunsmithing will modify a Browning trigger where he adds another set screw among other things. Makes it so it can be set to a very crisp 2 pounds if you like. He did it on my Browing A-Bolt Hunter and it has as nice (or nicer) of a pull as any of my other rifles. I had my rifle in for a new barrel / brake and other things. Kevin did the work then so I don't know the exact costs, but it seems reasonable if getting any other work done.
