    Still looking for someone who makes release triggers for Browning Recoiless. Spears does NOT currently make those triggers. Contact information appreciated.

    Why do you need a release trigger on a Recoilless? It takes 72% of the recoil away.

    When those guns first came out, numerous trigger smiths spent most of a year trying unsuccessfully to make a release that worked. As far as I know, no one ever did. A friend who was a release shooter bought one of the first ones at the Grand and never got to shoot it. Over a year later, he sold it in unfired condition.

    There are reasons for a release other than recoil.

    I have my 2nd Recoilless and i love the gun they shoot so smooth and they don't kick hardly at all my buddy studied the web for 2 days about the easiest kicking gun out there and assured me that the Beretta was the best ! then he shot his Beretta about ten times and then shot the browning and said i was wrong the Recoilless is way easier ! but some parts are hard to find and there is a lot to learn about working on them they are not as easy as a model 12 to take apart but i was a railroader for 34 years and hung by my right arm all day every day so my shoulder is shot ! but the Recoilless is the answer for my shoulder .( but what i want to know is how do you smooth the trigger we are taking mine apart tonight to put a seal in it and clean it ) and thanks to this form i can take it apart and put it back together from the info i got on here . Why would you need a release you don't even flinch when you shoot this gun ?

    The trigger on the Browning Recoiless is the slowest trigger ever made. ERGO: The downfall of the gun. If they ever made a fast trigger for the gun, many people would be shooting one, including me. I had one. So next best thing is a Ljutic Space gun, very little kick or a Remington Synthetic Completion. Likewise, very little kick. I have both these guns with release triggers. Recoil has always been my nemesis.
