    I recently recieved a Bowning highwall with a broken sear spring.
    After replacing same as per all manuals the hammer will not hit the firing pin.
    It drops to the safty notch in the sear and no farther.
    I have reassembled time and time again with no results.
    I have tried different sear springs and trigger return springs,all of which were
    ordered direct from Browning.
    Any insight to this problem would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks WOOFT1

    Hi Wooft1,

    First of all, please stop by the intro section and tell us a little about yourself and your high wall. There are losts of guys in here that would love to help ya out.

    If you havent done any gunsmithing before------stop now and take your rifle to a gunsmith.

    If you have gunsmithing experience..........

    I would 2x check the rifle with a schematic (schematic of the action if possible) to make sure that all of your parts are put in the correct way. IF you are 100% sure that the parts are assembled correctly, I would then check the trigger weight adjustment screw. It may be adjusted too heavy. If neither one of these work, i would suggest you take your rifle to a qualified gunsmith. (adjusting or installing the action, sear or trigger incorrectly could be a safety issue)

    hope this helps.
