    I have found a Belgium Browning trap gun that I am thinking about buying but it has a release trigger. Having never shot one I need the option to have it converted to a pull trigger.
    Does anyone have a estimate of the cost for the conversion?

    Its usually not alot, maybe $50-$90 depending on who you have do it. I had a BT 100 that could easily be converted back and forth by one screw that held the hook on. Of course that was a drop out trigger gun.

    Thanks for that quick reply! Anyone know a gunsmith in Atlanta who can change the trigger from release to pull?

    Read all the threads here about shooters who have changed to release triggers and wish they had done it sooner. Why don't you try it for a few rounds? I'll bet you'll be glad you did. A release is not just for eliminating a flinch. It's an better way to shoot.

    A gun with a release still has a fully functional pull trigger. The hammer fall in the pull trigger is simply interrupted by a hook and pin in most guns. If you take the stock off and operate the trigger a few times, it becomes obvious how to convert it back to pull.

    I would not do the job without wearing latex gloves for the same reason I will not put my gun in the rack next to a pull trigger. I believe flinches are highly contagious.
