"Karl is a very knowledgeable and professional guy. The quality of his work is what brought me out to review. I had him rework a trigger on my S&W Shield. The trigger is now smooth, light, and makes this firearm extremely enjoyable to shoot. Highly recommend his services!"

"I took a couple of guns to Karl to have him take a look at some feeding issue. One was an AR-10 (.308) and the other a 1911. Karl was prompt in updating me on the issues and what needed to be addressed on each firearm. Since he has unrivaled experience working on triggers, I had him rework the triggers on both. The AR-10 has a milspec trigger in it and he was able to make it as fine if not better than some of the match grade triggers I've paid hundreds of dollars for. As for the 1911, Karl immediately identified the issue and was able to resolve it. I also had him rework the trigger, and this gun shoots like never before.
For this point forward, the only person that will be working on my guns, building my guns, or enhancing anything on my guns will be Karl Ramm."

"I've done a bunch of guns with Karl. I just test fired my XD 9 Sub and MP 9 Shield. I am very impressed with his work! Very smooth triggers and quick reset. Both guns shot at POA with no malfunctions.
Those of you who have XDs and Shields, I highly recommend these quality trigger jobs. You will notice a big difference from the factory creep and grit. The quick reset also allows for quicker, smoother second shot follow ups."

"Beautiful work and I have to say I was extremely impressed with trigger jobs and work you perform. If I get some free time I will contact you if is possible to get some threats cut to my new Saiga so I can have a muzzle brake installed.
Talk to you soon brother"

"Karl did his work on my shield 9 and my M&P 9C and I can not be happier with the work. The trigger on the 9C is AMAZING. He took out most of the unwanted pre-travel and made the reset so much better than factory.
I highly recommend Karl's services."

"Took in my M&P Vtac to have Karl work his magic. Initially I had a APEX flat face trigger & competition spring kit. It was having resetting issues and the trigger sat a little further forward then I was comfortable with. Karl suggested the APEX polymer trigger and corrected the reset issue. Karl was thorough & kept great communication with me. The pull is now smooth with a clean reset. It is a night & day difference and I couldn't be happier. I highly recommend you check out his work. Thank you Karl!"

"Karl did his gunsmithing magic to improve the feel on my trigger for my M&P Shield last week. Very happy with the attention to detail he provided and the end result.
He worked his magic on two more handguns for me. A Ruger Mark III 22/45 and my Glock 42.
Night and day difference for both. Very pleased as usual with his work
His work is top notch."

"I hated my XDS 9mm because of the lousy trigger. Read about Karl and gave him a try on fixing the trigger. Have not shot the XDS yet, but no doubt in my mind I will really enjoy shooting this pistol. The trigger job he performed is absolutely amazing."

"I sent my CZ 75B into Karl a few weeks ago. In 10 days and it was back in my hands. It shipped back and forth from the San Diego area to Karl via FedEx without incident.
Karl tightened up pre-travel, post travel and the slack take up that comes after the reset on stock CZs. Also reduced trigger creep and pull weight. Feed-ramp was polished to an amazing chrome-like finish."

"Met with Karl a few weeks back about doing trigger work on my XD compact after reading all the great reviews. I was also really interested in the Glock 19 (with trigger job) he has advertised. After meeting with him, I decided to pick-up the G19 and add Trijicon HD night sights to both hand guns.
Honestly, money well spent on both. Literally transformed the XD. The trigger pull is much shorter and the break crisp and short on both. The G19 runs unbelievably well and accurate too. I can't say enough about the work he did. I highly recommend him to anyone wanting to improve their firearms."

"Had Karl do his trigger job on my S&W Shield. This was my first experience with him. Karl is a very nice and knowledgeable guy, and handles himself very professionally. I got the pistol back in a little less than a week.
As for the Shield, it's as everyone else said. Trigger is smooth, short reset, less take-up, breaks lighter. All around a much more pleasant pistol to shoot. Cannot say enough of the quality of Karl's work."

"Just received back my Ares SCR back from Karl.
It is such an improvement over the somewhat notoriously troubled stock trigger! Light and crisp, and the creep is gone. It's a very quality job, and I'm very happy with the work, the turn around time and the price.
Thanks Karl!"
I'll post pics after I get a chance to run it hard, hopefully this week!

"I wanted to take a moment and say thanks for the awesome work you did on my CZ SP-01. I finally got a chance to try out the updates and I'm very pleased - my groupings are tighter for sure! For those of you on the fence or just thinking about a trigger upgrade - I can't recommend Karl's work highly enough. I was prepared to spend much more on aftermarket parts but Karl talked me through his process and what he could accomplish with the stock parts and minimal third party parts - the results are amazing and you don't have to wait months....!"

"I picked up my two pistols today. Wow Karl did a great job, especially on the Shield. The Shield trigger is just about perfect. Nice 3.75lb break, no roughness in the take-up, no over travel, short reset. The VP9 trigger is breaks at 3.5lbs. No roughness in the take-up. The feed ramps on both pistols were polished too. Now it's off to the range to test reliability. So far I'm very happy with the results and would definitely recommend Karl's trigger work."
UPDATE:"I shot the two pistols at the range today. No reliability issues with the lightened triggers. Smooth feeding and no failures to fire. I can definitely recommend Karl's work."

"Another happy CZ customer here. Karl did fantastic job on my CZ75 SP-01. He made the double action a lot smoother and lighter, and removed pre-travel and made reset shorter. I could now hear the trigger reset and its reset better. Thanks again, Karl!"

My shield arrived today. Wow! You did an awesome job! Light and smooth, great reset. I took it out and shot it a bit and it's incredible! I will recommend your work to anyone. If it's ok I'll put your name up on the board at the gun club.
Thanks for the great job...
