    Cole did mine. The tiny spring will still be in the gun. It isn't a true conversion. Talk to Cole.

    Kolar only does work on their guns, the 90T (which is one of their guns), or guns that have their subgauge tubes. They will not work on anything else.

    I have Kolar mechanical triggers in one of my 682's. Very consistant and great feel. I've asked them about putting a set in another 682 of mine and they said no problem send it to us. I guess my experience is different than skeet_man.

    I'm just going by what the website says. When was the last time you contacted them about it? They changed their policy a couple years ago, and I have heard of people being turned down for work because of the new policy.

    Beretta will do it also..I'm lucky enough to be in driving distance to Accokeek Md and the Beretta guys will do it at any of the bigger sporting clays events we have around here all the time

    Phillip did my brother-in-laws but like someone else stated I don't think it is a true mechanial set up. However it does work better than it did before especially on lite loads.

    I don't think there's going to be a way to eliminate the spring. The conversion involves replacing that spring with one from a 410 gun. Same setup, different spring.

    Phillip Crenwelge did mine after four broken springs over a two year period. Too early to tell if it is "fixed" since it was done last month.

    Curious as to the advantage if you don't shoot sub-gauge? Does it lighten the pull? Keep it from doubling?

    In the old days we used to fix the problem by increasing the weight of the inertia block. We used a little piece of lead tape which we placed on the side of the inertia block. HMB

    I believe the reason for the lighter spring (410 ga) is to get the second shot to set easier for lighter loads.
