1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    Here is a really nice BERETTA 682 Gold E Top Single combo. I would rate it at 97-98%. There is one small (not deep) scratch in the comb wood. Metal is perfect with super clean bores. Adjustable comb and pad. Pull triggers. All the choke tubes (Optima), the case and accessories that came with the gun new are included. Price is $2875.00 including shipping to the lower 48 States.

    Thanks for looking!

    I listed this gun previously and the buyer had to back out of the deal for financial reasons. This is a really nice combo set and has been shot relatively little. I'll post some more photos soon. Thanks for looking. Bob Schultz

    Bob, can this gun be changed to "double release"? If so, how much for the conversion. Tom

    Tom,

    Yes, double releases are not difficult on Beretta's. Allem's of PA can do them as can Phillip Crenwelge of Phillip's Gunsmithing. My guess would be around $500 for the job. I have used both of these gunsmiths and they are reputable and build a good release.

    Bob and Tom,

    Allems charges $500 EACH for their Roller Release triggers - but I have them and can tell you they are worth the extra money. They are smooth, crisp and can be sped up or slowed down simply changing roller sizes and converted back to good pull triggers just by removing the rollers. Either job only takes a few minutes and a screwdriver.

    Part of the cost involved in release triggers, aside from the painstaking work and precision needed to build a good one, is the liability insurance! Installing what amounts to a "dead man" switch on a firearm is, in the eyes of the insurance industry, potentially a disaster. Premiums for building releases can be in the tens of thousands of dollars annually. Our litigious society would have a field day suing everyone down the line who has an accident with a release trigger. Fortunately there are very few problems.

    Jack, aside from the liability aspect that Bob mentioned, you have to be willing to pay for the ingenuity, imagination and development time that goes into inventing a better mousetrap. Like his father, John Allem Jr. is propably one of the brightest gunsmiths in the country and his Roller Release trigger is an improvement over the former method of making release triggers.

    The Allems have come up with a lot of equally inventive things over the years. When Krieghoff released the K-80 with its unsingle barrel 30 years ago, Perazzi buffs were left out of the latest craze. John Allem Sr. fitted Krieghoff barrel tubes into Perazzi monoblocs and made his own Perazzi-style adjustable ribs for them. If you wanted a Perazzi unsingle before Perazzi decided they were worth building, you bought it from John Allem and paid his asking price.

    If you wanted an unsingle barrel for your Model 32 with a Vandalia rib, you were out of luck because K-80 unsingles were ribbed for the lower K-80 rib. But John Allem made his own M-32 unsingles that were Vandalia rib-compatible. And the list goes on.

    You know, we all could shoot just about as well with an 870 or 1100, so why do we bother spending thousands more for even a Beretta or Browning, let alone a Kolar, Krieghoff or Perazzi? But it's just like a trapshooter to complain about something like that. I laugh when I see shooters who arrived at the shoot in a six-figure motor home and shoot a $20,000 gun use cheap imported shells and complain about how much even THEY cost!

    Actually my initial comment is pointed towards the $500 that Ed mentioneed. If I were ordeirng a release from Allem's I would certainly pop for the "Roller Release" type. For one simple reason. They are adjustable for speed. Adn as most experienced release shooters know tryin to switch from a quick release to a slow release is about 5000 targets of lower scores. On the otehr hand a new recruit to releases cna adapt to either. Hence, used Allems (et all) are a very good value. Allems, bowen's, Hubbart's, Phil Crenledge, Darrel Johnson, Allor, and most of the otehrs. I cannot wait to try out a CG release.

    I stand by the laibility comment but certainly agree that a Allems type of company needs laibility umbrella. Adn too, No one ever accused me of suggesting profit was out of order. Big fan of that.
