Browning A-bolt trigger adjustment help

I have a browning 7mm-08 and the factory trigger needs some help. I use jewel triggers in my remingtons but I'm not sure they make a jewel for the browning A-bolt. Can someone give me pointers to adjust a factory trigger.

Thanks

    I had two a-bolts with factory triggers. I ordered a Timney spring kit (for a-bolts) from midway. It came with two springs - one at 3# and one at 2.5#(?). Installation was simple, and I couldn't have been happier with the results. I'm not, by any means, a bench rest shooter. But, for a hunting gun, the springs did great at a fraction of the cost of a whole trigger replacement. For me, it was really cheap because I used I got two triggers tuned in for the price of one kit.

    Thanks for the information fellas. I will look at Midway for the spring kit.

    Tikkamike has one for sale on the classifieds now. It's the heavier of the two in the kit.
