    Anyone shooting a DT10 combo with a release, please advise who did the work, and your experience with that 'smith.

    I've just called both Spears and Allems, neither of whom will work on DT10 triggers.

    Let's try to keep this ONE thread on a decent level, by NOT suggesting a different gun....PLEASE.

    Thanks for your suggestions...

    John

    (Thanks Dan, but he said no DT10 release work...shucks)

    I have just spoken with Phillip at Phillip's 'smithing;

    $500 total for top and bottom triggers, and a week or so turnaround.

    Thanks Dan!!!!

    John,

    I am suprised to hear Sears won't do them. I have one DT 10 that has double release by Spears. I called and talked to them about taking the hooks off. They were friendly and very helpful. I wonder what gives. I do know that I can't take the trigger out of one action and put it in the other and have the release work, so it takes some work on the reciever as well as the trigger group.

    JON

    I have two from Mel Hunting (Silver Dollar). His son Glenn is also a gunsmith. It is a very clever design. He does not remove anything from the receiver or stock.

    I thought I would bump this thread back to the top.

    John, did you get your trigger unit converted to release by Phillip? How do you like it? Did he have to do anything to the receiver or can you just pull the trigger out of that gun and swap it into another gun?

    Just curious cause I MIGHT be in the market for a release trigger for a DT10.

    Thanks.

    Cheifjon, I heard that Spears stopped doing dropout triggers, as to many people who thought they could do better, were messing them up and he got tired of fixing them up.

    Don't know if that is true, but that's what I heard.

    Hauxfan!
