Lucky you, cocking knobs and triggers are cheap and pretty easy to find. I can't link you up to any sites right now, but a quick google search ought to do ya just fine.

Aw man...it's an all matching Tula gun :'/ lol even the stock, although there is a rectangular chunk by the magazine that was replaced.


I doubt it...but could this be caused by cosmo up in the chamber? I really have to give it a good smack to get the bolt to lock up and it "fires" ~30% of the time

That sucks. It's really no big deal to remedy, but after all that work and waiting I bet you're ready to shoot it...sucks...

Good thing about these guns is they're cheap, a quick swap of the faulty parts or even the whole dang bolt is pretty painless...Try here...

Cosmo can make it hard to choose the bolt, scrub with a bronze phosphor brush and mineral spirits.

But that should NOT make it "fire" like that. Unless there is a build up of cosmo on the sear/sear notch.

Post some up close, well lighted pics of where the trigger engages the sear notch please.

In the first photo it appears that the top of the spur (insert correct terminology here) is worn down really bad.

This might be a silly question but when you stripped it down to clean it did you put everything back together properly? Also, make ssure that no crud or wood chips are wedged up in the trigger well. The trigger and sear is a particularly simple design but with anything simple they are prone to failure. I would replace both...neither are numbered so your rifle is intact.

^^^^^^^ +1000 that is exactly correct, we have a winner!
Unless... You weren't holding the trigger down when you took that pic were you, browning?
That "spur" should actually be just slightly higher (I think) than the little ramp.
Browning, please get us a pic of the notch that it engages too.
