Looking for a gunsmith to either a) get my stock xbolt trigger down to 2.5 lbs or b) can try to fit this damn timney to the stock as the safety binds up when you tighten things up.

check the, JARD triggers . Much better option than springs. what's wrong with the Timney? I just saw they came out with a new xbolt trigger

1911 Academy right on 380

Clearance issues apparently - the safety binds up when you tighten everything back up.

Going to Scott at live oak - he seems like a really nice guy.

Just got back from Scott's shop. We spent more time bs'n than him actually working on the rifle. Very knowledgeable, fair prices, very accommodating from a scheduling perspective. Timney works fine now that it's been clearanced. I'll definitely be giving him my future business.
