    I have a couple of 391 release triggers that I would like to convert back to pull. Is this a big deal or is it something I could do myself? Any suggestions?, advise, etc. Thanks, Rich

    If you can live without using them again, the easest way is to cut
    the hook off with a cut-off wheel mounted on a Dremal tool.

    You have to remove the release hook and replace the original sear. It's
    an inexpensive part. Depending who did the release, you may have to also
    replace the spring in the trigger that loads the sear. Spears, for example,
    replaces it with a small rod, so the release hook will be rigidly attached to
    the trigger. I have seen release triggers where that wan't done. It is also
    likely that the notches in the hammer have been altered.

    The gun cannot function without the sear. It will become fully automatic, and
    actually become illegal to own. You would be better off buying a pull trigger
    and selling the release.
