I'm gonna go out on a stretch here and say Bill Springfield as well. His name doesn't carry the same "prestige" as Bruce Gray but I haven't heard one horror story about his work yet. Can anyone tell me if there is a difference in what he does and Bruce Gray?

Bill does what he does and at a good price. His work is a good value IMO but when you're talking top of the line and HK triggers Bruce is the man. I'm not a fan of monkeying with triggers in the first place but I still believe that Bruce is the answer to the OP's question.

Well I understand what you're saying, that's why I said Springfeild isn't a prestigous as Gray, but I still haven't heard anything bad from Springfeilds trigger work. So if both of their work is good I don't see much of a difference. Guess I kinda look at it like... Do you want the generic bag of chips or the bag of Lay's that taste exactly the same

Some statements here are as founded as saying, "I've never heard of a Russian nuclear reactor melting down, so I don't see the problem with using Russians for nuclear power."

Bruce Gray and his crew, hands down.

GGI offers several options for HK work, and while they aren't 'cheap', they are very well done and comprehensive.

The biggest reason to pick one over the other is GGI takes your entire firearm, does the work you want, and test fires the weapon to ensure proper functioning and sight regulation. Not everyone does this. GGI is a full service gunsmithing outfit that does loads of HKs and SIGs, in addition to high end custom work on them as well as 1911s.

Are you going to pay more? Sure, but you already spent the money on an HK, so go all the way if you need action work. If you want cheap action work, you should have bought a Glunk. ;)

I'm a satisfied, returning customer of GGI.

Grayguns also re-plates all ground parts with a nickel teflon coating so that there is no bare metal to invite corrosion.
Which definitely explains part of the premium cost, along with the name/reputation, test-firing/function check, and extensive staff in case one person goes sick or has a brain-fart. GGI has a full time CS employee to take care of you and your order/package, a specialist to do your HK, and Bruce who will look over the work and give you a call when it's done. That process/system alone justifies a BIG price increase. At the same time, don't be that douchebag who calls or emails all the time asking about small details....they have a freakin' job to do, and it's working on guns.....not being your gun talk buddy. They're ultra courteous and very nice people, but don't take advantage of that. Ask the question, get off the phone and let them work on guns.

Another reason for the high cost besides others have mentioned is the fact that the work is guaranteed, and that you can trust the guarantee.

I had Bill Springfield do trigger work on my P2000SK and am totally satisfied with what he did. His turnaround was much quicker than I expected and the trigger is very very nice and his communication with me was first rate. I would not hesitate to have him do more work for me.

That said I will probably have Bruce do the trigger work I want on my HK45C - not because I'm not satisfied with what Bill did but because there's a bit of an apples to oranges comparison between the two offerings. As has been pointed out, Bruce nickle-teflon coats the fire control parts, does some reliability work on the gun, regulates the sights and test fires to verify reliability with your carry ammo as there will probably be a hammer spring change. It's a more comprehensive package and for that you pay more.

Nice.

As for HK Gunsmiths, isn't there only one? Last I heard, only Bruce Gray worked on HK's. What I mean by working on HK's is that he's the only one who can do just about ANYTHING. Too bad Randy Lee doesn't turn his attention to HK since he's pretty much perfected the M&P trigger.

Dude, feel free to borrow my signature disclaimer at any time. Really, feel free.:wink:
