2.5 # 1911 trigger cost?

Recommended Posts

It depends what you need.  Having a competent smith do the work will cost around $150 to $200 just for the labor but it's worth it.  A good quality ignition kit such as EGW runs around $140. Add shipping if not local.  Most smiths will only do 3-5 lb trigger jobs.  Below 3 lbs is only recommended for completion shooting.

What do you think?  What should I be paying?

Thanks,

A DYI job with a new “semi dropin” set of parts should be $150-ish. That assumes you’re read-up enough to do it yourself. An honest smith using new parts should charge $250-300.

Around me it's $100 plus parts.  Most of the $100 is setup time.  Once the barrel jig is setup, the work is done in no time.  If you are being charged more than $100 plus parts, your gunsmith does not have a barrel jig and a mill.  Stay away.

I'm afraid I'm not following you on this.
