First trigger swap
I just completed my first trigger swap. Put a WC in my new SDS Tisas. Yeah, lipstick on a pig right? Actually, no. It's a really good handgun! I picked it up, never fired, second hand for $250. Figured this would be a good learning gun for me. I've actually never broken one down completely before. So this should give me confidence to totally take down my others. I'm not sure I'm going to like that series 80 stuff, but at least I know how the rest of it goes together now.
I did have one small burr in the frame. Took about 4 file swipes to clear it. A little sanding on a glass plate on the top of the trigger and it was good. Polished it up on the Baldor, oiled it up and it slid in perfectly. Set the depth and reset and that part is good. I'm very happy with myself honestly. I have a skeletonized hammer, mainspring housing and magwell to install next. I'd love to do a beavertail, but I'm afraid that's well beyond my capabilities. I don't want to mess up the finish at this point either.
So, I do have a question. If I buy a beavertail, what should I expect a real gunsmith to charge me to install it? Refinish down the road?
