I wouldn't imagine much charge for materials, but labor would be a few hours or so.Having never broken down a gun to this level, it seems like it would be a better idea to have a gunsmith do this for me. How much should I expect them to charge for something like this?
Be patient, but DO NOT PRY on the cradle. Make sure the pin is completely out. If you can, work a very very small jewelers flat head screw driver and GENTLY & SLOWLY work the cradle out. Again, check to make sure you have ALL the pins out.I'm actually stuck on getting the front cradle out. The pin is completely out, but it won't budge.
I'm having the exact same problem, front pin and all.jontheturboguy,
Yep, I'm 10000000% sure. The front cradle pin was a bear to get out on its own. I'm halfway tempted to just say screw it,since the only thing left is to clean up the trigger bar. The pull on my gun is pretty smooth already, the main problem I have is that its still a bit heavy.
