Default Trigger Job on browning hi power

What side of the sear do I polish for a crisper trigger pull? The sear engages the hammer at a square face about 1.5mm thick,
I'm thinking about turning this square face into a trapezoid shape, which would require polishing/ sanding on both sides. Is that the right way to think about it or should I only hit one side of it?

If you have to ASK about doing a trigger job yourself, you are probably not qualified to be doing it...

Hipower trigger jobs are similar in geometry to 1911 trigger jobs.
There are LOTS of good articles on how to fit a 1911 sear and hammer together.
They will give specific dimensions for the hammer hook heights and sear prep.
Go read those articles.

G.Snider: You're probably right. My next question would be, anyone know a good Hi Power gunsmith near East Bay Area? And how much do they usually run?

Default BHP Filed Service Manual

I have attempted to attach a PDF copy of the Browning Field Service Manual for the HP, in which there is a discussion of how to bevel the bottom edge of the sear face to lighten the trigger pull. If the attachment failed to take, send me an email at lee.patch@sbcglobal.net for a copy. Many other techniques are also useful or common to complement this approach. YMMV.

the HP is, well to put it simply is a *****.
given the weird shape of the sear & its inability to lay flat - unless you have specific tools and a jig for it having a gunsmith do it, is really the only way to ensure the proper geometry.

that said if you wanted to re-spring & polish things like the sear strut & channel... trigger strut and so forth, have at it.

just remember that when you put it back together, that extra part that you have sitting there - no need to worry about it, it was probably just the mag disconnect anyway


and Echo try Donald Lazzarini @ DLG 408/206-6034 trigger job should (guessing here) run no more than $75
