    sorry shipwreck. I would like to have the plastic trigger replaced and some new sights added. not sure what else. I would be willing to spend $400-$500 any other ideas of what to have done to it would be great thanks

    how capable are you, just a trigger and sites. Just replacement would be a good place to start learning to do at least some upgrades yourself

    I have a couple of local guys who do gunsmithing - I have had them swop out triggers and sights in the past - Usually, they charge $20 - $25 to put on new sights.

    First, I would go to your local gun store and ask if there are any gunsmiths in your area. Also, check your yellow pages for "gunsmiths" - there are some listed in my local yellow pages (we have 4 different phonebooks here, so ya may have to check any of the different ones in your area).

    It is dumb to waste $50 just to ship your gun to someone else unless U have to!

    there are many sites out there and depending what you want where will be the best place start your search with parts and go from there it can be part of the fun just seeing what is available.
