    I'm looking for a gunsmith in the Cleveland area for some minor work. Actually, almost anyone with some basic gun knowledge at a level higher than me will do.

    I bought a M&P Shield 9mm along with an Apex trigger and duty/carry kit. I'm not comfortable installing it so I'm looking for someone to do it for me.

    Years ago, I had the smith at Stonewall range REMOVE a New York trigger from my Glock 22. They didn't break anything. I just won't use their range.

    I have no experience with the Apex trigger, but I found the Ghost connector very easy to install in my Glock 19 and Glock 22.

    It might be easier than you think.

    B&T Shooting on pearl road in middleburg heights! They have always taken care of me.

    There is also buckeye outdoors in Pittsfield LaGrange area on nickel plate road. I haven't used him but he milled and mounted a rifle on an old military rifle for my buddy and did a good job.

    Stonewall can go bankrupt for all i care! I cant stand that place!!

    Or, you could go to the Berea gun show this weekend...there is usually a Glock armorer there who does jobs like that.

    I certainly agree with regard to their [lack of] range safety practices, but they seem to be capable of doing trivial gunsmithing tasks... one of which I learned to do for myself to avoid having to use them.

    I didn't think of B&T. I didn't know they did that there, but I could ask.

    Yeah, Stonewall is out for anything other than quick range shooting. They don't have what I want anyway.

    That's the one thing I'd NEVER use them for.

    The last time I shot there I had guns pointed at me twice in ten minutes.

    Never again.

    Check out Crown Firearms, used to be Vieth's Sporting Goods. Good people and full service gunsmithing.

    The person behind the counter was too oblivious to notice three guys yelling at each other in Serbo-Croatian and wrestling over a loaded Remington 870. I'll never go back.

    Yikes!!! That's definitely a shooting range I wouldn't want to visit either!

    Gun pointed twice in ten minutes. Yep, I'd be gone in a heartbeat.
