    Congratulations, Ray

    It looks beautiful !!!!!!!!!! Please post some more pics.

    I agree with you. I have numerous guns they have worked on for me and have never been disapointed. Go there sometime and look around. You will be amazed.

    Good people to deal with. Bought several guns and traded-very fair to deal with.

    You can't take John serious----He's a class A personality getting up in age and had health problems,just ask Nancy---He built the business and tought the boys well---I have had many happy experience there---4 release triggers---bought a K-32 with a fair price 10 yrs ago---Stock fittings---Superposed rebuild---ETC----The shop is so clean you can eat off the floor----They must be doing something right---Call for work done and turn around is probably 2 months----Who is any better for us in the N-East ?----For some reason gun smiths have attitude problems----Found it that way for yrs.

    I hate to be this bold, but I'd like to know, what does a rebuild like this cost. I have a TM1 that would be a good candidate, and I'm just thinking.

    They can be abrupt, sometimes, on the telephone. I have just gone through getting a Perazzi, SC3 trigger, converted to their double release. I had two conversations with the boys, and two with Nancy. They could not have been nicer or more helpful.

    The work on the trigger is first rate. I like its action better than my Precision. Expect a long wait.

    Best of luck to everyone, Ron Ireland, Memphis, TN

    If you guys think being a gunsmith and gun dealer is a box of chocolates,think again---Think about all the personalities they have to put up with---Think about your own somedays---John Allem don't have to beg for any of us to deal with---their there---Take it or leave it----but when you leave, where will you go?---There might be 10 in their league throughout the country---Travel on my friends---gL---George@SJB---------PS----Don't think I'm their poster child---
    They don't know who southjblue is-----I just think their among the best and when I want the best in the N East I go to Allem Guns

    Milt,

    Yes, it is a Roller Release. I think it might be more crisp than their older trigger, but I thought they were good too.

    I like my Precision very well also, but I think, I might like the release of this new Allem better. Hard to tell.

    Ron

    I've got a great Allem story for you. A few years ago I sent my Mirage with fresh engraving by the late Bill Mains and Dockwiller engraved wood to Allem for release triggers. The gun returned in a couple of weeks less the forearm. When I contacted them all they wanted to do was argue with me and accuse me of not sending it. After many calls and much frustration I found out that all of their trash was still behind the building in a dumpster with cutting oil and other crap. They finally agreed to go look after much pleading on my part. Guess what - it was in the bottom of the receptacle. By this time I had been pushed to the limit! They ended up having a new forend made for the gun, but wouldn't even pay the shipping. I wouldn't go near that tribe again with an 1100!

    dawg,

    Shame on you! I was there in July buying a new gun. Nancy, John Sr., John Jr., and Mike all had a hand in the project and they did a hell of a job with it. I walked (drove) away a very satisfied customer.
