I've had two pistols refinished there, had some gunsmithing done, and am preparing to call them up to arrange for a third project next week.
I'm a fan.
Tripp is Tip Top
Had him hard chrome an XD 357 for me. He did a fantastic job and the turnaround time was fast. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with them again.
Nothing bad. Ever.
This Christmas, I bought a new Les Baer SRP. I sent it back to LB for their "T-Chrome" finish, since I wanted the SRP to be chromed, but was scared of sending the gun to Tripp due to LB's draconian warranty policy.
I received the gun back from LB in early March after a 2-month wait. The finish job was nowhere as nice as Tripp's.
The SRP is currently en route to Tripp for a rather expensive correction. I will never make the mistake of going anywhere else -- even those purported to be "high end" -- than Virgil Tripp at Tripp Research.
His comparatively superior finish will take 2 weeks, not 2 months.
Tripp also does very nice smithing on 1911s.
I guess I'm a fan...
) does smithing on CZs? I don't want anything fancy, just some FS stippling and new sights.
At times he can be rough to get on the phone but in my experience he's always answered his Emails if given a few days leeway.
