    Rob. NOt much to it, but Doug Braker is as competient a K80 tech as anyone. You might not know that he was Kolars' head gun smith when they were the big Krieghoff dealor in the country. But Doug knows K80s like the back of his hand.

    He only has dial-up at his shop, and so he does his emails in the AM and evening from home

    Those releases only work with certain hammers--

    Pat's gunsmithing in Wells Minn installs a lot of releases for all brands of guns

    A few years ago, I bought a used K80 with release triggers. Since I shoot a PULL trigger, I wanted the release hooks removed ; returning the gun to a pull configuration.

    Glenn Hunting did the work for me at the Silver Dollar in Florida. It would follow that he could also INSTALL releases..................

    Installing used hooks in a Kreighoff does not alway work out perfect. I would ask the gunsmith if they will work in your gun as they have been set and fitted for a different gun and may not be as good as a new set up fitted to your gun. I say this because a friend had a used set installed over the objections of the gunsmith to save money. They work but are not near as good as a new built set up. So ask first who made the original set and how do they fit your gun it may not be a marrage made in heaven. They may also be perfect but use caution and make sure you use a good gunsmith.
    Good luck Buddy

    Rob- Both Kreighoff and Allem would do a fine job, but the very best would be Glen Hunting. The reason he would be the best is that you could go down to Silver $ in a couple of weeks, shoot the Southern Grand, enjoy 80 degree temperatures and get the release triggers put in all at the same time.
