    X bolt trigger

    Has anyone had a conversion done on there Stainless X bolt trigger unit for the new feather light one?
    I have been told the original trigger isn't easy to work on.
    Loverly rifle but excessive weight on the trigger for my liking.

    If the X bolt trigger is the same as the A bolt trigger then they are not hard to work on to achieve a decent trigger pull. I have tried the new featherlight trigger and it was pretty good out of the box. The Browning reps did say that the featherlight was designed not to be user adjustable.
    It's the calibre of the shooter that counts not the calibre of the rifle.

    X-bolt trigger is not the same as an A-bolt.
    That said I found it straight forward to work on, remove and strip down, cut spring down and put it all back together.
    Cutting spring about a coil at a time I had to do it a couple of times, but ended up with a very nice trigger that broke at 1 lb.

    The original trigger is dead easy to work on, it just has a red protective seal that you remove and you can then make the adjustment, i did on my 30-06 and i am more than happy with the trigger now.

    was an easy job to fit it.
    Never did export them, and now no longer does one for the X-Bolt.
    But he does (or did) have the instructions for working on the trigger posted.

    Which is how I got mine, but my cut down spring worked better for me.
