    Gunsmith advice wanted - DFW

    I did several searches but came up empty.

    I live in Carrollton (75010), so the closer the better. Specifically, I have a Ruger Security Six and I'd like to lighten its double action trigger pull.

    Suggestions on local smiths, anybody? Any help appreciated.

    The only one I know of would be at the Bass Pro Shops in Grapevine. I've never used them, but have heard good things about their work.

    Ig Garland isn't too far

    I would recomend B&S guns at the intersection of 30 and Broadway. They are very profesional and extremely knowledgable, their prices are not cheap but then neither is the service you receive. I was quoted $45 for a trigger job on my new rifle. They are also responsiable enough not to lighten it past a safe point no matter the pressure or money applied.




    Have fun,
    Searn

    +1 on B&S Guns. Bought several guns through them and had a little work done on my Kimber. They are very professional and good to deal with.
    If I die from gunfire, it won't be from a lack of shooting back.

    Post Suggestion

    If your Ruger trigger pull feels smooth but, just overly heavy then I would buy the following from Wolff Gun Springs.

    SHOOTER'S PAK - Reduced Power.
    Contains 1 each 14 pound reduced power hammer spring and a Wolff design, reduced power trigger spring to reduce and smooth out trigger pull and let-off function.
    Stock No. 17106.....$ 9.00

    Try switching out the springs first and save yourself some $$$ because the above is what any gunsmith is going to install when you ask to have your DA pull lightened.
    They usually will also do some internal polishing but if your pull is not gritty and is just too heavy then the Wolff spring kit should be just what you need.

    I would install the replacement springs (piece of cake to do that) and then dry fire your Ruger about 200 times. That should get you good to go.

    If you don't feel confident swapping out the springs yourself then buy the spring kit and go to ANY decent local gunsmith and ask him/her to change out your springs for you.

    It will only cost you 9 Bucks for the kit plus $20 (aprox) for the labor to change the springs.

    There a few good gunsmith's in or around Carrollton. Doc's on Keller Springs near 35 has a good reputation. He specializes in rifles but does handgun work as well. My son-in-law has used him for his rifle and always been happy. Larry at SPS does good work but takes forever. I have a gun being blued by him now that his been in his shop for six months. SPS is at Beltline and Josey Lane. I have also used the guys at Bass Pro and they do good work as well.
