Thread: browning x bolt trigger help needed

    browning x bolt trigger help needed

    i have been trying in vain to find a replacement spring for my browning x bolt trigger.

    http://www.erniethegunsmith.com/catalog/i136.html

    this shop wont post overseas and i cant find anyone else who sells them.

    does anyone have a solution. the current 3lbs is a bit too heavy.

    I and 2 other keepers next door have this problem, we have searched and searched, contacted local gunsmiths and asked Malmo guns who we all purchased the rifles off and all have told us you can't get a replacement trigger for them. One gunsmith said that you can take it apart very carefully and file something away (only a little bit) and that would help but non of use dare do it.

    If you find anything keep me posted.

    Hi artschool,

    if i had the original spring i could make you a new one, it would however take me a couple of weeks to recieve your spring, load test the original and make a few different samples and achieve your required load. it depends if you can wait that long? I will PM you my website as i am not a trade member on here just another stalker that happens to make springs for a living.

    all the best

    Artschool, I would be interested to know how you get on as I have just posted on a similar thread about looking for a replacement trigger unit for the x-bolt. I consider mine to be slightly on the heavy side for me personally and would like to reduce it a tad. Have also seen the springs in the States for $6.95 plus shipping, but they are unwilling to post to UK. Not sure what sort of technical know-how would be required to replace a spring though, does anyone know??

    Don't know if you've tried/ or if they'll post out to you, but these people do trigger springs, browning etc.--

    searchhunters-rifles.gunsandfirearmsstore.info/browning-trigger-spring.php

    Seen springs on there for aprox $7, hope this helps...callie

    i have had my trigger apart on my x bolt and the spring is a different shape to usual. my gun smith tells me that even if you change the spring you wont be able to get lighter pullin weight. it is possible to get the pullin weight down to 1 1/2 lb but to acheive this you have to file part of the mechanisme away. i dont recomend doing this your self. chris blackburn of UK Gun Works knows how to do this. although i have this rifle my self i dont recomend it. they look good and are cheap in price. but they are cheap for a reason.

    Hi Big Buck, welcome to the site. Well, what a bombshell you have dropped as your first post! The majority of members I have heard from (including myself) cannot sing enough praises for the x-bolt - can you enlighten us why you don't recommend it please? Are you seeing something the rest of the world are not? Do I need to be aware of something happening with it?
