They're in Phoenix.
Can anyone recommend a gunsmith that could install tritium night sights, do a trigger job, and possibly replace the safety on a like-new, Parkerized, ten year old, Springfield 1911? I would like to bring it up to a good carry grade pistol.
I have searched online and found a number of gunsmiths, but I wondered if anyone has experience with someone they would recommend? The nearest city to me is Tucson and there is no one there who will do the work. So I am willing to send it somewhere. Thanks!
Have you called Springfield Custom? Their prices can be awesome... and the turn around is very good...
No one does Springfields better...
Thanks for both suggestions. I'm going to look them up, and maybe chat with them once I get my pistol out here from my house back east. Not too long now.
Teddy jacobson in sugarland, texas @ actions by "t" or alex hamilton in san antonio, texas @ 10-ring precision can git-er-done for you. I promise you will be extremely happy with their work. Robar in arizona is also very good plus you can get it refinished at the same time. I like their "npe" finish the best.
Arizona, like NW Arkansas, is pretty much a capital of 1911 smiths. Ted Yost, Don Williams, Robar etc. Any of them are excellent. Also, as mentioned, the Springfield Custom Shop. They might be a little quicker, too.
