    I have a SA mil-spec with a decent amount of creep. The creep got worse after I tried "polishing" the sear my self to try and fix it. Rather than send it to the SA custom shop for a trigger action job, what are the odds of being able to get the vickers blueforce gear sear and dropping it in and having a clean break??? Is it likely that I will NEED it to be fitted?? Also, will springfield custom shop have a problem with the fact that I worked on my sear(i just polished two different surfaces, nothing too serious)??

    Hammer and sear engagement needs to be fitted no matter who makes the parts. If you want to do this yourself, Brownells.com has some trigger job writeups that you might look at.

    10X is correct. Hammers, sears and safeties are NOT drop in parts. The safe operation of the gun and everyone around it is at stake here.

    Fair enoungh. Thanks guys. I have decided to get a nighthawk custom hammer and sear and will have the SA custom ship fit the said parts into my SA mil-spec. Also, do you guys think it would be wise to also get a new disconnector to go with the new hammer and sear, or is that not necessary??
    Thanks
