    Your questions, in order:

    There are some junk release triggers out there. Stick with names like Timney, Spears or any of the ones made or converted by true gunsmiths, not a guy who has done one or two for buddies.

    You can buy used release trigger groups for Remington shotguns for anywhere from $125 to $250, depending upon wear and condition. Just last week, I bought a Timney that had been used for 50 targets for $175 shipped to me. I bought two new ones directly from Allen Timney when he was still making them for $150.

    Sure, parts can break but there aren't a lot of trigger parts that are under a lot of tension, so actual breakage is rare.

    Better triggers - Timneys, for instance - can be repaired and parts for them are available.

    Pretty much so, yes.

    I've had timmey, schaub, & spear's. they are all good if taken care of! the best is the machine body's one's that timmey use to make? the'll run from 90.00 & up for a used schaub or spears to 200.00 to 300.00 for timmey? Buyer beware? My advice would be to contact a good gun smith like Tom larkin, and see if he has any available or can get you one, that way you know it's been service & ready to go. he's in tucson for a shoot right now. or if you have a good gun smith in your area check him out. ===slid==

    Call Darrel Johnson at Spears and buy a new one form him. It will outlast you.

    On the other hand, I havethis Timney. Mnie is $250 + shipping, all steel, virtually new.
