Does anyone make an after market trigger for the Browning A-Bolt Stainless Stalker?

Re: After Market Trigger for Browning A-Bolt?

After a quick search I came across this Moyer

Apparently the factory trigger can be adjusted between 3-6lbs, if you want any less Rifle Basix, Jewell, and Timney offer spring kits, or a gunsmith could tune it up for you.

A-bolt Manual

Hope thats enough info to get ya going George.

I recently took my browning A-bolt medallion down to a little gunsmith near Indiana pa for the same thing. Not entirely sure what he did to it but WOW. He took the trigger down to 2LB and it breaks very crisp and clean. would highly reccomend him to you. Gresock Gunworks, (724) 349-1152

You can do the job yourself for about $10.00. Look up erniethegunsmith.com on ebay and order a varmit spring. It is very easy to install yourself, and it will bring your trigger pull down to 2 lbs. It will also be crisp.

Re: After Market Trigger for Browning A-Bolt?

You can also take the spring out and file or grind a little off an end and reinstall. I do this with my A-bolts....no problems, easy, fast and works. Make sure you have the screw adjusted for the lightest setting to start then a take off a little bit at a time. You can increase with the screw if you need/want to. My A-bolt triggers are somewhere handy to 2lbs and crisp as can be.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

I put timney trigger spring kids in every one of my A-bolts.They're $13 and easy to switch.

Re: After Market Trigger for Browning A-Bolt?

As the proud owner of two A-bolt stailess stalkers I would only ask one question, why would you change it..you can adjust it for pull and travel, it's pretty smooth and only needs to be turned down a little..anything below 3 pounds in a hunting rifle would cause you to be a little careful with gloves on.. a little filing on the sping could lower it a little but I can't see the need..mine are fine from the factory and I've never even thought about anything ligher in a hunting rifle.

Re: After Market Trigger for Browning A-Bolt?

It's been more than ten years, but adjusting the trigger myself on an A-Bolt, with a then new bought small screwdriver, adjusted the trigger, enough for me. I thought the low adjustment was good enough. The small group certainly wasn't hurt.
