    The trigger is connected to a block that has 3 lengh of pull settings.{3 little indents} This block is the connector. At the dove tail where the trigger rides on the connnector mine has cracked and I have had to replace the connnector which costs about $50 and is not easy to do. Has this ever happened to anyone else? Thanks

    George: Is this common to the BT 100? I have 3 other Brownings and never had this happen to them. You think it is poor heat treating in the trigger block?

    I have two BT 100's. I have gone through three triggers since I brought them. A trigger seems to last about two years before the grove breaks off the trigger. The last I paid over $80.00 for just the trigger. The next time it breaks I will have someone fabricate a trigger and silver solder or screw it on . Fortunately the connector has not yet broken!

    hi hangover, i have seen a few of these cracked. the most common cause , in my opinion , is over thightning of the set screw. i have found that taking the set screw out and cleaning the set screw and threads with alcohol, then reassembling with blue locktight might help. get the set screw good and snug but not too tight. the lock tight will keep the set screw from backing out. these parts are aluminum and easy to overtighten. hope this helps. doug hubbart gunsmith
