    How hard are the Browning XT's to convert to a release or a release pull and who does the best job at it.

    I was very pleased with Skeet's Gun Shop. The work was done and the gun returned in two weeks plus a couple of days. Price was good, too.

    Lots of shooters on here recommend Phillup's Gunsmith. He did a great job on a Rizzini for me. Think his claim to fame is Citori work. Jim

    The best release I have ever seen for a Browning is a Spears. It feels better than a Krieghoff or Kolar factory release. THAT is saying a lot.

    If you are in Ohio Call Thurman Gobel and also a fast turnaround, and very reasoable, he has been doing them for years. He has installed numerous release triggers for me and never a problem, Here is his phone number.419-675-3164

    Phillips did my XT. Excellant work and short turn-around.
