Remington 3200 release triggers ??

5714 13
I am wanting information from anyone who has personal experience with release triggers in a Remington 3200. How they are set up, such as pinned, or complete different mechanism. Also problems, if any, in going back to pull trigger. I know nothing about release triggers in the 3200 and the gun in question is not where I can take the stock off an take a look. Any help is appreciated.

You may get a lot of different answers on this. I was going to go to the 3200 for my shooting gun. I wanted a release / pull trigger. I went to see Gary Roman to get the r/p trigger. He would not do it he only did r/r. I was told that the hammers spring put to much pressure on the hooks for the normal release trigger. He said that the springs need shorting and other stuff. Said the Remington did not think a release could be done on the 3200. He patented a double release that worked on the sear not the hammers. I have shot it and it worked great. I have also shot a Phillips r/p that I had no problems with. Good luck 3200 is a neat gun. Tom

I have a release pull in mine made by timmey (junk) the release is too long to reset for the second shot! Spears told me years ago no one could put a good release in a 3200 (I find that hard to believe. I would try phillip he has done about everythingn else for me with great success. good luck

Tom, that was an interesting post you made. I shoot a release pull 3200 that was presented to be Gary Romans personal gun at one time. His initials are all over it, and the stock and forearm were customized. I love it! It's never been worked on, and it's broken a good number of 100s. I hope Gary gets to see this post!

That is interesting. I went to his shop and talked to him. He pulled out the drawings for his patten. We went over them and he said to me in person that he only did double release. Tom

I have never shot a release trigger, but am considering a gun that is presently set up with a release. I would probably be wanting to convert the gun back to pull trigger. If I were to get into having to replace several internal parts that would certainly enter into my consideration of the gun. Any information on converting back to pull would be appreciated. Sounds like there may be several variations of release triggers on the 3200 that are out there.

Space Gun: Is Spears in Hutchinson the gunsmith you are talking about. I used to live about 3 blocks from that shop. Been in there many times. That was when the elder Spears was running the place.

On my timmey release/pull all I need to do to return it to pull/pull is remove a small hook, however it is kind of tricky as to not remove the pin holding the hook too far as it will kind of fly apart. I have chanced it serval times with no problems (YET)

OldRemfan the spears I called was in Pa. He was an older fellow and one heck of a shot, I think around 2003 I shot with him at the grand Friendly fun to talk with and if my memory is right he had a 98 or 99 in singles on that day and I know he was a senior vet.

If you have a way to remove the stock and take a picture I can tell you who made the triggers. If they are my triggers I do not charge anything to convert them back to pull triggers.
If they are Timmney triggers you can just remove the hooks but the trigger pull will have a lot of slack and travel.
If they are Romans triggers you have to replace a few parts to get them back to a pull trigger.

I also had Phil C. convert my MX trigger to r/r a short while back. It's one of the slickest release triggers I've ever used and I'm extremely pleased with it! After practicing 100 targets with it, I won two trophy's at my AZ state shoot entering only four events!! Phil is my go to guy for trigger work of any kind!! Thank you Phillip!!
