Curious if anyone happens to know a good gunsmith in the OC area that has done/could do a trigger job on a gp100. Curious to see how smooth I could get it.

Has anybody done this or know someone who would do a good job? Thanks

That is on the far side but if he does an awesome job and isn't super expensive, might be worth it. What's the name of his store?

I have used Bolsa. They seemed to do alright for the minor work they did for me.

What Black Talon said, he has no store. He's appointment only, just give him a call. He does every type of work from basic trigger job to full refinishing and machining.

I'm actually dropping off my 1911 this weekend for him to work on.

You can also call Brad @ Tactical Support. His # is 562-865-0483. I have used him more than once and been very pleased. He is busy, but he is good.

He is in Cerritos, which is LA County...barely.

Is this the same Brad from Ammo Bros in Cerritos?

I've used Bolsa just recently for two GP100's and they did a fantastic job.

Really. I only went there once. Do you know what they got the DA/SA trigger pull down to?

Edit: And I gave Will a call, a very nice guy. But I am curious as to what is a standard price for a good trigger job. I got a quote for an East coast guy, JC Blauvelt Gunsmith, I guess a somebody in gunsmithing, and his price was less than half of a quote I got out here. I was a bit taken back at the price difference and wondered if either I'm getting overpriced by one or underworked by the other. Opinions?

Will will generally replaced components with new, tuned components. You can tune your stock trigger assembly and parts for much cheaper. A trigger/action job (AFAIK on a 1911) should go between $70-170. Prices vary on components used (or not used).

Was that SA or DA, if it is DA that is unbelieveable. How much did they charge?

NiteQwill, Thanks for the info. I got quotes for $70 and $150 both for the basic trigger job.

That's the single-action break. The double-action was really nicely smoothed out and lightened, but I don't know how many pounds.

You know, the really sad thing is that the single-action trigger on my Ruger Super Redhawk was AMAZING from the factory. My GP100 was utter crap.

The GP100 is now like my Super Redhawk, and I am a happy man :)
