    Three pounds fresh from the box? It will smooth up with use. Go shoot it. Even Timney triggers come set between 2-3 pounds.~Muir

    I suggest you learn how to use a trigger correctly.............................. 3lbs too heavy ....................... Sheesh.

    Have to say that for a sporting rifle 3lbs. is probably light enough.

    i have the browning A bolt in .223 cal and the trigger has now run itself self in on 3 Ib pull and is a delight to use, just run with it, let the rifle settle in it will be fine.

    I have the a bolt in 243. The trigger pull I would say was more than 3lb when I got it and I think it had the factory tirgger. I got a gunsmith to change the spring and clean/polish it and he has reduced it to around 2.5-3lbs and I think that is fine now. All my other rifles are around that mark...it cost a tenner for him to do the trigger...

    Hmmmm Sorry but I really do wonder at some people. I wonder how they would get on with a Revolver especially a double action one. Can you see some of them managing to even pull a 10lbs double action trigger?

    Ok then, your answer is No. It's not too heavy.~Muir

    If you look on the Browning website there are full instructions for trigger pull adjustment, very simple even for us Yorkshiremen.
