    Does anyone know a good gunsmith , that would be able to put a redstar arms adjustable trigger group in my ak-47? From what i heard , these are somewhat complicated to set-up the correct way.

    I have been to Murphy's and they say there are no gunsmiths in town they would recomend. 2nd Amendment has one. Tucson Gun doesn't know of a truly competent one. If you find one let me know.

    I guess some can do a few things, but how much trust can you put into a smith who people complain about their work ? Especially a trigger job ?

    Impact Global Arms
    These guys are in Tucson They might help you

    Wow, I've never heard of Impact in Tucson. Where are they located? This is not the same though as Impact Guns Online Store.

    Also, check out Tucson Guns and Western Artifacts or Jim at 2nd Amendment.

    Yeah I have been to both of them. I think 2nd Amendment is a little high. Tucson Guns has a decent selection of AR stuff. Diamondback is a pretty good place as well. Murphy's can be hit or miss. They have a great selection, prices can be good, but I find the help there to be lacking unless they know you and have spent tons of money there.

    Yeah, I would agree that 2nd Amendment is high. I like the people at Tucson Guns -- very helpful. I got my suppressor from them.

    I have not been to either Diamondback or Murphy's, but I should stop by sometime.

    I think I like Diamondback better than Murphy's. Overall, DB has more stuff, but Murphy's has more guns. I saw an XD-M at both places yesterday and the prices were exactly the same. Each place fills a void left by the other.

    No, they don't have any of those. Or if they do, they aren't there long. I'm not really looking for one though.

    Thanks for the info guys , i have been to murphys , they said they have no more gunsmith , i've also been to diamondback and they tend to blow you off if all your doing is asking a question , instead of buying something , i like the guys at tucson guns they will talk with you , and there ammo is cheaper too. i live on the north side so all i have around is the sportsmans warehouse , and the marksman on prince.:(

    Yeah, Tucson Guns is far out, but it's worth it to me to deal with the people. Scott has been fantastic and has spent considerable time with me and my decision making process.

    Speaking of Tucson gun shops, I was at Murphy's today for the first time (placed a special order on the LCP -- third store I have an order with!) and they had a sign on their door that was perplexing. It stated that all firearms must be unloaded, holstered, with the actions open before entering the store. I realize why they do this, and I am actually not at all afraid to enter a gun shop unarmed as every employee is, but the hypocrisy of this store and the 2nd amendment is what I struggle with.

    Any one else know of a gun shop which inherently posts a "(customer) gun free zone"?
