Default Trigger on Abolt

Need a lil advice guys. I bought a browning Abolt two yrs ago and after I shot it the first time I found something wierd acting about the trigger. After you shoot it and open and close the bolt it lets the firing pin down as you close the bolt. I can open the bolt back up and push the trigger forward and it's all good to go till you shoot it again. I dealt with it last yr but I swapped stocks and want to fix it. Could it be a broke spring or could it just be gummed up and need to be cleaned?

Timney makes a great trigger spring for the Abolt....very easy to do. I would try that and go from there. Your spring may be bad.

Last one I bought was around 40 bucks.

I took the trigger assembly of the receiver last night and got it soaking in some degreaser. It seems to have just been gummed up and wouldn't let it spring back to normal

Awesome...the trigger kit makes a big difference. It comes with a 2 # and a 4# weight I believe.
