    I am "tire-Kickin" a bit.....having said that, What is the going rate for a used Perazzi MX style drop out trigger? I am looking for one to keep as a spare in my shooting bag.

    $350 for an open frame old trigger, to about $750 for a MX2000 scroll etched trigger guard model. Selector switches usually add $200-$400 or more to the higher figure. All that said, you are better off to learn how to maintain your current trigger.Cheaper and you do not have the lock time learning curve. Carry a good kit, replace hammer springs at about 10,000. maintenance is the way to go.

    I have to agree with Jack (MX2G). With proper, and routine, maintenance, you will probably never need a back up trigger for your Perazzi. The myth of the old days of needing a back up trigger for a Perazzi is just that: A myth! If you know your trigger inside and out, there is almost nothing that can't be done to get a broken trigger back into the game with very little effort.... Save your money, and buy a few extra parts for your existing trigger, and you will be set to go.... Just my experience.... Dan Thome (Trap2)

    "........... you do not have the lock time learning curve."


    OMG!!! The Dreaded Lock Time Learning Curve!!

    What is that anyway? Is this yet another wonderful out for missed targets. Sounds really impressive.

    I'm thinking like in addition to the asleep at the switch FTF rule - a two target per event exception for TDLTLC and would apply to missed targets, not just failing to shoot. Would work for me.

    If you shoot a pull trigger, please heed Dan's advice. I would carry a spring kit AND be well versed in changing springs. It takes less than 5 minutes to get the kit out, open it up, and change the spring.

    If you shoot a release trigger, I would (and do) carry a spare trigger with set and release weights that are very close together.

    Best of Luck to you,

    Are the prices that MXG2 quotes for a pull trigger? What are going prices for a release/pull and double release trigger for a MX8?

    Don,
    You didn't specify Allem, Precision, or other release trigger. I shoot an Allem in my MX2000. Most are not aware from what I have read, but, at least with an Allem, you do not have to remove the hooks to change a hammer spring. If you use the compression tool to unlatch the hammer link, same as with a pull trigger, you can rotate the spring back far enough to remove the spring pin from the trigger frame. And the process is reversed to replace the new spring. Hold the spring near vertical, place the pin in the hole, and rotate forward past the hook. It's a bit tight on the RH side, but it will pass the hook. Use the compression tool to engage the hammer link. And for those not familiar with the Upper/Lower Spring setup; replace them one at a time to avoid putting the spring pin in the wrong hole.
    The whole process may take a minute longer then with a pull trigger.

    GlennS, Not sure about others, but you can but a used Allem for $800 to $1,200. And as a side note, an Allem double roller release trigger can be easily setup as any of the following by simply removing one or both rollers: pull/pull, release/release, release/pull, or pull/release. A hook with the roller removed will function as a pull trigger. Allem also offers 5 different sizes of rollers so you can tune the amount of trigger creep you get upon release from a lot (technical term) to crisp with no creep. -Mark
