    My brother in law had Phillip do his. However my understanding is. it is not a true converstion! They install lighter springs so it sets better. I would E-mail Phil and ask him.

    They install a 410 inertia spring. If you're daring enough and mechanically inclined, you can DIY. Kolar is the only one that I'm aware of that ever did a TRUE mechanical conversion on the 682s, and they only work on guns they've worked on before, or have their subgauge tubes now.

    I had Coles do mine. They bare not true mechanical triggers but you do not need to bump the gun to fire the other trigger. If I remember right it was under $200.00.

    I had Briley do my 687 when I had tubes fitted two years ago.

    Calvin this is your old Bud !!!! I had two Gold E's converted to Mech, but like stated above I was told that they are NOT a true mech conversion, they do need a very slight bump, sometimes when I am done shooting and fireing the triggers into a snap cap before putting the gun away I really dont have to even bump it to set the second trigger off, mine were done by Phillip and i think He only charges $50.00 But He is in texas.
    If you only send Him your reciever I am sure He can do it and in My opinion He is the Best Trigger man out there.

    Allem's converts them when they install their releases. I don't know what they charge for that operation alone.

    In the old days, if you bought Kolar subgauge tubes, they did it for $100....

    Kolar did my 682, it was very crisp andinever had one problem with it, I think it cost less than $150.

    It has been several years ago that the trigggers were converted but I think it cost around 200.00. I don't shoot it much anymore but don't recall having any problems.
