Good gunsmith in Pittsburgh?

Just bought a Ruger SP101 and it is very stiff. Anyone know of any good gunsmiths in Pgh. area and what a good trigger job might cost?

Not sure of their 'pistolsmith' skillset, but Economy gunsmithing right outside of wexford are some of, if not 'the' best smiths around. They are very well known in western pa and eastern ohio

Keidels in Washington.

Regarding the SP101, they are pretty stiff, shoot it and dry fire it a lot and it smooths out nice.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

I made mine feel alot better by doing this and putting a 9 lb wolfe main spring in. Bought the spring kit from Brownells. No FTF at all w/ the lighter spring. I've heard bad things about changing the trigger return spring (think thats what its called) so I left that alone
