Now first off this is not a condeming thread. I only need info. I sent Phil (Phillips-Gunsmithing) a trigger group about the first of October. At that time when I called him he told me a two week turn around on it. As of today I have not received it back. I called him a couple weeks ago about it and he told me then it was on the bench and would be on its way back. I have called him two times this week and he has never called me back. What I am wondering is if something happened to him? I was wondering if anyone on here knew him personally and if they might know something?

I know I sent the trigger to a competent gunsmith for the work. I am only worried if something health related or like that might have happened. I know there was a bad accident on I10 in Tex. about a week ago. Pictures on the internet showed a Fed Ex truck involved with the sides torn out of it. Heck maybe that is where my trigger is.

Talked to Phillip this morning. Everything is fine on his end. He has a project of mine in the line to be done also.

This is a busy time for him.

Please don't worry. Phil is avery busy guy this time of year and trust me he will get your trigger and you will be very satisfied when you do. Good luck, Tim

I saw him at the Tulsa gun show. He was having a good time. I expect he is okay.....

I found out what I wanted to know and thank you. I was worried that something might have happened to him. I see that did not happen. I know the trigger is in good hands. Thanks for the info guys.

Sent him a Browning for a fast double release and lightening the inertial block just prior to his travel to the Spring Grand (and I had the option to send it to Arizona and have the work done there). Two weeks later I read about his relocation back to Texas. Sent him an email to be ensure that my Browning would not be lost in the move. Was assured not to worry and got the receiver back two weeks later. It took approximately five weeks. Great job and very happy with the work. Patience is a virtue - especially from a well revered gunsmith.

I got my trigger back today. It looks like a fine job. Looking forward to trying it out this coming Saturday.

I had him change the trigger in my new BT99 it did take him awhile but I got it back and it's looks very professional and the price was more than fair.

If every 'smith was as business-like and capable as PC the world would be a far better place.

I took him a trigger at the Grand and got it back 5 hours later. He does excellent work and is very reasonable.

He does great work at a very good price. Of course there are times he is on the road or snowed under but normally those are brief.

Sent a K-32 to Phil for double release. Talked to him before and he told me he was about three weeks behind. So what? If you want it done right its worth waiting for. Phillip has done 5 of 6 for me and they all match in feel and performance. Browing Citori,Browning BT, K-32 etc.

I'll wait for another great conversion

His trigger work on Remington 1100 triggers was (is) so good that I sold all my Timmney triggers. I tyhinjk he charged me less then 50 bucks a trigger and they were like rifle triggers when I got them back. Phil is the man. Jeff
