Browning B-92 357 Mag
« on: November 30, 2021, 07:21:37 PM »
Got one of these recently (used gun purchase) and was pleasantly surprised with the condition after looking at the pictures provided in the offering.  Turned out better than it looked.

Now the other side of the coin.  The trigger pull on this thing is just awful.  It breaks reasonably cleanly but my word is it a heavy pull.  Darn near broke out in a sweat just trying to pull the trigger during it's first outing. LOL

Any advice on a simple trigger job, or should I say a spring lightening job on one of these before I start tearing it apart?

I would have bet there was someone on CAScity who owns a Browning B-92.  Curiouser and curiouser!

I had a B-92 .357 fifteen years ago, but I don't remember the trigger being bad at all. It was a very accurate rifle, but would choke on anything shorter than a full-length .357 - 1.6"? Thirty eights, fuggetabout it. I traded it for two Rossi '92 .357's that work fine with the shorter cartridges. An 1892 is tricky to get back together, and involves the use of an empty case or dummy round to hold things together during reassembly.

Thanks for the feed back Jbar4.  I just found out they have a coil main spring rather than a lief spring.  I know how to lighten lief springs.  I'm not sure I'm ready to cut coils without having a spare on hand.  Maybe I'll find a local gunsmith.  Not enthused about shipping this thing anywhere.
