A trigger job is the single most effective way for a gunsmith to add accuracy. A smooth, crisp and light trigger pull will get it done every time. Typically factory triggers will make the “BANG”, but they don’t take the time to polish the surfaces in the mechanism to make the pull “smooth”. Chances are your trigger feels like there is sand in the mechanism. This is caused by machining marks left on the various surfaces inside the trigger mechanism.
A gunsmith “Trigger Job”, entails disassembling the mechanism and “Hand Polishing” the surfaces to glass like smoothness. Using special tools and knowledge, the machine marks and imperfections are removed from the mechanism. Ensuring a safer, more consistent firearm.
You’ll be amazed at the change in your weapons accuracy. While I do trigger work I also will do a full safety inspection on the weapon and let you know if anything else is needed to ensure safe use of the weapon.

Price is Shop Rate x Hrs + any Parts. General gunsmith trigger jobs do not require parts – Changing trigger pull weights on striker fired guns typically requires a spring kit. I used to routinely lighten springs on revolvers and semi automatic’s, but I don’t typically do that anymore. The availability and price of spring kits for almost all makes and models of guns makes hand tuning springs unnecessary. So depending on the gun you’re getting the trigger job done on you can assume you’ll be getting a spring kit as well which is nice because I return the original springs and then you have backup spare
