This seems to be my week for being asked questions about Brownings.
One of the guys at work has a Browning A-Bolt with a crappy trigger.
There does not seem to be an aftermarket trigger like there is for a Remington 700.
What can be done to improve the trigger on an A-bolt?

I would not have expected to hear this about a Browning rifle.

Timney doesn't make a trigger but they do make a spring kit for the A-bolt, that with some polishing in the right spots should get a pretty decent trigger.

Yes they are.
I wonder which pieces are 24K Gold?
They seem to be the only ones who make a trigger assy so I guess they have no real competition.

To me it is a sad testimate to manufacturing that we need to get trigger jobs done.
I mean when firearm costs what they do today little things like the action should already be great.

Some of it's a liability issue. Remington is having a tough go of it now over the same issue. I have to be extremely careful when I do a trigger job, and run the firearm through a series of checks before I turn it back over to the customer.

Liability is a bitch.
It makes one think before doing kitchen table gun smithing.
I do trigger jobs myself on many of my guns but would not do one for someone else.
I know a guy who had a 1911 that had what he decided was a kitchen table trigger job.
I witnessed it double and triple.
