Browning BLR Laminate

Got my eyes on Browning BLR with a laminated stock. Always wanted a BLR and the laminated stock with the stainless action and barrel looks awesome. Any thoughts or suggestions from you guys?

Trigger sucks huge

I got the rifle. I was wondering if there is something that can be done with the trigger on it. The pull itself isn't so bad but the creep sucks. Have to pull it along way before it goes off. Any ideas to help with that?

Not much on Brownings..but that BLR is kinda interesting. Only thing you can do is polish the trigger to get rid of some creep. Most semi autos and levers need a bit of creep to be able to operate correctly..1100s and 742/7400 Rem as are all the Marlin lever guns are that way as is an ol Winchester 71 and a 64 I have. You can make it better but can't get it all gone. My 444 Marlin is better but I did a bit of work on it. Trigger is about 4 1/2 lb with a bit of creep. It is a pretty accurate rifle for a lever gun. What cal is the Browning??
