    bought a 3200 dbl release, shoot the gun pretty well with the exception of what appears to be a hanging release. was shooting some really soft 1 onuce loads so I could stay in there and pick out what was causing the random loss and found the shot to be breaking way after I was off the trigger. Checked release points and it was down in the ounces could almost be completely off the scale before it released sometimes. What are some common release set points? I had though I could learn to shoot about anything but these really low release points have become an issue.

    If you release the trigger completely, you should hardly notice how low the release point is. It sure sounds like there's a spring in there that's not strong enough. Is your set weight real low, too?

    no set is 3lbs 12 ounces under and 4 lb over. there are no springs on the release hooks, release weights should be higher. would make a faster acting trigger. I have got one pin (pivot point) that was poorly placed, and is in fact flopping around in the air, until the trigger is set then the hammer spring force holds the release hook up where it should be. Seems like I'm going to be screwed this year on doubles with no gun. I'm not sure about the transition to the Roman silent release, I have heard that they are spongy when set? doesn't this have an effect on timing issues?

    You need your 3200 releases tuned. Can easily be done, try Phillips Gunsmithing

    I shoot 80/40. If a any slower than that my crossfire is the dominant issue. Phillip just reset 2 TM triggers to the above and one MX bottom first to the same.

    80/40 is fast, but my crossfire can only be defeated by having the gun go off prior to the crossfire taking over.

    Coons the maker of Precision triggers feels that 80/27 is preferred. Kiner feels similarly.

    Allem's roller Release gives you a choice of very slow to very fast.

    some of us shoot better with very fast triggers.

    OK thank you to all who answered. I hate to ship off before the Grand but maybe I can get it back before the Grand, at any rate not real effective with it as it stands.

    Twinbirds. When you get to the grand look up Phillip Crenwelge. He will have your trigger modified to your desires (set/release) before you shoot. He is fast, efficient, and VERY reasonable.
