    I'm also considering them for my Beretta 687 and would like to know if anyone who had a good non-roller release before getting one of the roller variety could notice any substantial improvement. They want $475 per barrel for my gun, which is $175 over a non-roller I can have installed, so I'd like to know that the extra expense will be worthwhile.

    As a rule, Allem's trigger work is superb - I've had their releases in some of my Krieghoffs - so I'm guessing the new style will work well but how much better?

    I spoke to John Jr before he did a release on my Perazzi. He told me he didn't think he was going to develop a roller release for them. That was almost a year ago so things may have changed.

    He told me the advantage of the roller was that the settings would not change over time. That's significant but I don't know what it does for the "feel" of the release.

    allems roller release is the smoothest release i have ever shot, i have been shooting releases for over 40 years & believe me allems roller releases are by far better than any other design out there. they cost more but you only get what you pay for. pay less & you get less.

    I decided to have Allem's releases installed in my new Beretta and went there yesterday to drop off my receiver. Obviously, I haven't shot with them yet but I have no doubt I'm going to be very satisfied. The workmanship in the making of the parts is impressive and the design is one of those "why didn't someone think of that before" things.

    Aside from smoothness, here are two huge benefits of the roller design. There are no traditional sears rubbing against one another and wearing over time, so the releases stay the same speed for life (and are guaranteed for life). Now here's a real biggie - the rollers are made in five diameters and by changing roller size, you can vary the release speed from slow to lightning fast. No more having the sears worked on and finding you liked it better the way it was but can't go back. Selling the gun and the buyer thinks your releases are slow? Faster releases are a phone call away because the rollers are attached with one screw that the gun owner can easily change. And if that isn't enough, removing the roller altogether converts the trigger back to pull albeit with a slightly higher pull weight.

    All triggers are returned with #3 rollers so the owner has plenty of "adjustment" range available in either direction.

    I am in the process of conducting a gun test on this Beretta and will include photos of the trigger work. This design almost makes "normal" release triggers obsolete and I'm wondering how long it will take for roller technology to be applied to pull triggers.

    I just had Allem's roller release system installed in my Beretta 682. I shot it for the first on July 30. I have shot approximately 800+ rounds with it.


    So far it is working GREAT, very smooth. However, the learning curve to learn to shoot a release trigger is another story, won't go into it. I am struggling! I got the 682 in 2002 and have never shot a release before. Over the last year I developed a serious flinching problem. I am hoping in time to become proficient with the release.


    As for the roller release, like I stated, IT IS GREAT. If you are considering a release trigger I can certainly vouch for Allen's and John Jr's workmanship.

    Frank, just look at the target and let things happen. I started flinching on a Saturday at Harrisburg, installed the release and went to your club on Wednesday night. I had a 14 on my first trap with it and a 24 on my second. If you try to make it work, it will fight you - just let it happen.
