    I've heard several people say his rifle stuff (particularly his HK stuff, and AR's) isn't bad, especially for the price.

    Never heard anything about his pistol work though.....

    Yup, has a pretty good reputation in the AR world.

    Pretty sure Soybomb has done business with him.

    Is this a pistol or a rifle?

    If it's a pistol, and you were serious about wanting a good trigger, I'd be calling Bruce Gray.

    I dont need a competition trigger, just to have the DA pull lightened a little and the reset shortened would be nice

    His work on USGI AR-15 triggers is GREAT! I heard that if you go through him his turnaround times are amazing, and you can send the trigger back for additional work if you are not satisfied.

    I picked up one of his triggers from Rainier Arms about 2 years ago, never had a problem with it. Went ahead and replaced it with a SSA for double the tacticool points though.

    He has a great reputation in the HK (and clones) rifle world. I plan on sending my PTR-91 lower to him sometime.

    I like his ar15 trigger work.

    As far as I know though he has no ffl so if you send your pistol frame to him you're asking to go to fpmitap

    His AR trigger work is great, I will never own an AR that doesn't have his work done to it. I've heard he does good work with just about everything else he offers too. Turnaround time is great too.

    On his website he instructs you to send him the frame on several types of handguns.

    He sure does. I think he's asking for a trip to jail and I don't want to be in his customer records as someone who sent him a gun without using a ffl.

    Here's the part that would nail bill's butt, unquestionably.
    18 U.S.C. § 922
    (a) It shall be unlawful -
    (1) for any person -
    <snip>
    (3) for any person, other than a licensed importer, licensed
    manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector to transport
    into or receive in the State where he resides (or if the person
    is a corporation or other business entity, the State where it
    maintains a place of business) any firearm purchased or otherwise
    obtained
    by such person outside that State, except that this
    paragraph (A) shall not preclude any person who lawfully acquires
    a firearm by bequest or intestate succession in a State other
    than his State of residence from transporting the firearm into or
    receiving it in that State, if it is lawful for such person to
    purchase or possess such firearm in that State, (B) shall not
    apply to the transportation or receipt of a firearm obtained in
    conformity with subsection (b)(3) of this section, and (C) shall
    not apply to the transportation of any firearm acquired in any
    State prior to the effective date of this chapter;

    18 USC 922 (a)(5) could possibly fuck you as the sender:
    (5) for any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) to transfer, sell, trade, give, transport, or deliver any firearm to any person (other than a licensed importer, licensed manufacturer, licensed dealer, or licensed collector) who the transferor knows or has reasonable cause to believe does not reside in (or if the person is a corporation or other business entity, does not maintain a place of business in) the State in which the transferor resides; except that this paragraph shall not apply to
    (A) the transfer, transportation, or delivery of a firearm made to carry out a bequest of a firearm to, or an acquisition by intestate succession of a firearm by, a person who is permitted to acquire or possess a firearm under the laws of the State of his residence, and
    (B) the loan or rental of a firearm to any person for temporary use for lawful sporting purposes;

    I don't know if gunsmithing would be considered a temporary lawful sporting purpose or not but I'd rather not spend the lawyer fees to find out.

    Is it really worth 5-6 times the price?

    Can't comment, as I've not perused either parties wares in that regard.

    Bruce used to be sponsored by HK (he's a GM USPSA shooter), and his Sig triggers are generally regarded as 'the best'. I had a 226 done by him, it was pretty nice.

    Probably will boil down to one of those cost/benefit analysis things.
