    The BAR trigger is not adjustable according to the info I got from the internet,Browning prefers to send the rifle back to them for work if needed.They do have alot of take up before releasing.Your local gunshop can fix it to a degree but then browning will void the warrenty.If it were me I would take it to a gunsmith and have him work the trigger over and to heck with the warrenty,but thats just me,if all else fails look up www.z-hat.com,they do alot of Browning work.Drop-Shot

    drop-shot gave you a good info and a solid suggestion,, is it that you want a specific name of a gunsmith or instructions to do it your self

    Check with your local gunsmith first,if all else fails these people do alot of work and had a 6 week back log a little over 3 months ago,super folks to deal with,had several friends send their rifles to them.I do alot of my own work but Browning makes their products more complicated,they work fine but very hard for the handy average guy. www.z-hat.com

    Don't get your panties in a wad.

    I have brought rifle to 7 different Gunsmiths and the say that the trigger is good as them have seen. Rifle has .042 creep in the trigger with the safety off. I have sent 3 emails to Z with no response from him. This is brother in laws rifle. He has decided to rid himself of the Browning rifle.

    my intent was misunderstood,,it sounded like you were desperate and would do the fixing your self,, if several gunsmiths said it was just fine than ,, anyone that turns down a paying job has your best interest in mind , tell your brother inlaw,dont mess with the trigger

    ...not good to mess much with these triggers, or triggers on most semi-autos.

    I have a BAR in .280 Remington. It is a beautiful rifle. Deep dark blueing and very nice wood. It wears a Leupold VX-II 2-7. I have taken several deer with it. The trigger is crap. It is heavy, creepy, and rough. The way I intend to fix it is to buy a Kimber 84M Montana in .308 and leave the Browning in the safe. I love the rifle, I bought it when I was 14 and I will never sell it. I know a gunsmith that I trust to do good work. He said he can smooth it and lighten it a bit, but it will never be all that great. One of these days I'll take it to him and see what he can do. I wish my dad had talked me into a good bolt rifle instead of a semi-auto back then.
