    Default Need Pittsburgh area AR smith to fine tune JP trigger

    I just picked up a DPMS LRT-SASS with the JP Adjustable trigger. The trigger from the factory and plenty of creep in it since DPMS doesn't tune them when they install them. I can send it to JP and have them tune it for $65 but it would be much easier to find someone local to do it. I normally deal with Stewart's but I am pretty sure he told me he doesn't mess with AR triggers. So can anyone recommend a good AR smith to tune this thing?

    Forgot about him. I contacted him before and he didn't seem to have time for me. Anyway, with some help from JP and some other folks, I adjusted it myself.

    No offense meant. I was bummed cause Freedom is about 10-15 min from me so it would have been a nice hook-up. It was during the craze so maybe he was just overwhelmed and sick of everyone.

    I tried contacting him (Al's Custom) as well after seeing his name and shop listed by The Gun Digest Book Of Concealed Carry by Massad F. Ayoob, I was reading about how this guy is good with KAHR and could smooth and lighten some the trigger.

    He said he was backed up 6 months and that he really couldn't do much to the KAHR MK40 trigger and could not lighten it at all. He probably was right as a 2nd gunsmith said he couldn't improve any the KAHR Trigger.

    it was just he sounded like he didn't want any more business.

    Al's quality of work is only exceeded by his sunny disposition!!!!!
    He's the finest revolversmith i've encountered, and knows his way around an AR like few others. He really helped me out w/ a 9mm upper that no one @ the factory could make right. AND... he's not my cousin!

    ha! You made that sound like you're glad he's NOT your cousin.

    I wish he was closer to where I live maybe I could get a discount..?
