    I have a first gen Browning A-Bolt Medalion (had it 20 years...family picked it out) which was my first deer rifle . Never really been satisfied with it, and want to improve it. Trigger has alot of takeup, mushy, and is a heavy pull. It also has that poly finish on the wood that Browning was big on for a while.
    I found an adjust trigger in Midway's catalog, and also a spring kit. How much good will it do me, and is it worth money and trouble.
    I also HATE the shiney poly on the stock. Could a decent smith strip it and do a satin oil finish, and what kind of wood is under there anyway?

    The factory trigger on browning a-bolts is easily slicked up/adjusted. As for the finish,rub with rottenstone to knock gloss off and you'll save a refinish job.

    I put the Wolfe medium spring in my a-bolt II. Moved the adjustment available range so that the 2lb pull I like was at the middle of the adjustment range rather than the end. Easy to install.

    I would start with the new trigger and see if it works for you as is. Then add a new spring if you need to.

    MidWayUSA has a Timney trigger spring kit for the Browning Abolt rifles. The package has a 2 lb. and a 3 lb. trigger springs. Easy to install and worth the price. I have two Abolt rifles. I put the 3 lb. in my stainless stalker and the 2 lb. in my Abolt ll heavy barrel varmint/boss. The trigger pulls are now highly improved and much liked. Functionally safe and drop tested safe. I reccommend the Timney springs.
