    Anyone got a 1911 sear jig that I could borrow to have a trigger job done? I would assume liability for any possible damage to the jig (which rarely happens to any of my tooling); I also have a lot of tooling that could offer in exchange - jigs, receiver truing fixture, I also have a small mill and decent quality lathe if you need few hours for your project. I live in North King County.

    One would think that any place you would bring your 1911 to "to have a trigger job done" would have a jig. And conversely, the place you would not want to bring your 1911 to "to have a trigger job done", would be one that didn't have one.

    True :) although probably not any place would be willing to let others to use their tools

    True. Perhaps I'm confused. Where will you be bringing your gun "to have a trigger job done"?
    If you want to borrow a tool to do it yourself why would you say and continue to say such a misleading thing. Just say that YOU want to borrow a tool to do it yourself.

    Yes, I should have been more clear. I want to borrow the tool and do the trigger job myself.

    It took me many hours to master using this jig. There is allot to doing a proper 1911 trigger job as I'm sure you know.
    The fixture was $170
    Then all the proper stones to get that nice glass break feel was nearly $250

    I could loan it out for a deposit..;)
