    I am looking for a shop which has a good reputaion for performing trigger work and installing a new locking bolt in a BT99.

    If anyone has a shop to recommend, I would appreciate it.

    I would rather not play "gunsmithing roulet" with someone I am not sure about their experience level with working on these guns, you get one chance to have it done right.

    Thanks, everyone

    There are some good suggestions here.

    I used to drop in at Wortners when I lived in London and I still get up to Chatham on business once and a while. George doesn't stock Browning guns now, though but he is good.

    My 2005 manufacture BT99 has developed a 2 pound trigger pull; too light for me.

    The trigger plate for this gun had a small, two prong, round wire spring in the inside rear of the trigger plate, secured by a flat screw. The prongs of the spring faced forward and beared down on the rear of the trigger, in a position that would offer some resistance to the trigger being pulled.

    The thing is, these were broken and I assume this could be a reason for the lighter trigger pull.

    This spring doesn't show on the BT99 parts diagram on the Midwest site but is is not some aftermarket modification because I owned the gun from new and have never had anything done to it.

    I am thinking the first thing might be to obtain one of these and install it, assuming I can identify it and the sale is not restricted by Browning because it is a trigger part.
