Congratulations, Ray

It looks beautiful !!!!!!!!!! Please post some more pics.

I agree with you. I have numerous guns they have worked on for me and have never been disapointed. Go there sometime and look around. You will be amazed.

They will never get a penny from me.. The old man was awefully rude to me..he walks away and sends Nancy out to take over. My cash and I walked out.. glad you had a nice experience.

You can't take John serious----He's a class A personality getting up in age and had health problems,just ask Nancy---He built the business and tought the boys well---I have had many happy experience there---4 release triggers---bought a K-32 with a fair price 10 yrs ago---Stock fittings---Superposed rebuild---ETC----The shop is so clean you can eat off the floor----They must be doing something right---Call for work done and turn around is probably 2 months----Who is any better for us in the N-East ?----For some reason gun smiths have attitude problems----Found it that way for yrs.

I hate to be this bold, but I'd like to know, what does a rebuild like this cost. I have a TM1 that would be a good candidate, and I'm just thinking.

They can be abrupt, sometimes, on the telephone. I have just gone through getting a Perazzi, SC3 trigger, converted to their double release. I had two conversations with the boys, and two with Nancy. They could not have been nicer or more helpful.

The work on the trigger is first rate. I like its action better than my Precision. Expect a long wait.

Best of luck to everyone, Ron Ireland, Memphis, TN

If you guys think being a gunsmith and gun dealer is a box of chocolates,think again---Think about all the personalities they have to put up with---Think about your own somedays---John Allem don't have to beg for any of us to deal with---their there---Take it or leave it----but when you leave, where will you go?---There might be 10 in their league throughout the country---Travel on my [email protected]'t think I'm their poster child---
They don't know who southjblue is-----I just think their among the best and when I want the best in the N East I go to Allem Guns

Milt,

Yes, it is a Roller Release. I think it might be more crisp than their older trigger, but I thought they were good too.

I like my Precision very well also, but I think, I might like the release of this new Allem better. Hard to tell.

I've got a great Allem story for you. A few years ago I sent my Mirage with fresh engraving by the late Bill Mains and Dockwiller engraved wood to Allem for release triggers. The gun returned in a couple of weeks less the forearm. When I contacted them all they wanted to do was argue with me and accuse me of not sending it. After many calls and much frustration I found out that all of their trash was still behind the building in a dumpster with cutting oil and other crap. They finally agreed to go look after much pleading on my part. Guess what - it was in the bottom of the receptacle. By this time I had been pushed to the limit! They ended up having a new forend made for the gun, but wouldn't even pay the shipping. I wouldn't go near that tribe again with an 1100!

dawg,

Shame on you! I was there in July buying a new gun. Nancy, John Sr., John Jr., and Mike all had a hand in the project and they did a hell of a job with it. I walked (drove) away a very satisfied customer.
