Browning X-Bolt Trigger grr

Does anyone know where I can buy a different trigger for my X-Bolt. Or is it modifiable. I know it's adjustable and set at about 3 lbs. But I think it's still terrible.

Why do you think it's terrible, is it gritty? How light are you looking to go? I have mine set at 2 pounds and I like it better than any other 2 pound trigger I've ever squeezed.

Maybe that's all it will take. I thought 3 lbs was a low as it could go. I hate taking the gun apart now that I've got it sighted in.

I thought a 1lb pull would be better.

Mine felt great at 3 but I put a new spring in and got it down to 2. In the winter I sometimes miss the 3 pound pull.

I have one of these in my A-Bolt II and it dropped it down to right at 1.25-1.5 lbs. it's nice and crisp now. Well worth the money and takes about 15 mins to install.

The x bolt trigger is way different, it has to be disassembled to install. I bought my spring from Ernie the Gunsmith.
