TJ's Custom Gunworks Frequently Asked Questions

Here is a compilation of some of the most frequently asked questions that I have received, if you

TJ's Custom Gunworks Price List - JANUARY 2008

feel I have omitted something important, or you feel you have something of value you would like me to add... PLEASE E mail me ! Question : OK, I decided I want you to do some work on my gun, now what ? Will your "Short" trigger really make the reach to the trigger closer ? What is the toughest finish for my gun ? If I get my gun plated, should I have you do your work before or after I get the plating done ? Why does your action job cost more than some of your competitors ? Why does your plating cost more than some of your competitors ? What do you think about the new Sig's ? What work would YOU recommend for my pistol ? What exactly is your "DayGlo" sight highlighting and can you do it on night sights ? Why do you prefer Meprolight sights over the other brands ? How much should I fire my gun before I send it in for action work ? Should I replace all my springs when you do the work ? I would like to order some of your parts, what do I need to do ? I still have questions, how can I contact you ???

Q: OK, I decided I want you to do some work on my gun, now what ? A: You simply send me your gun directly, via UPS or FedEx (NOT US MAIL / U.S. Postal service) INCLUDE WORK PAYMENT IN THE BOX WITH YOUR GUN. (CASH, Money Order, or Cashiers Check / Bank Check are the ONLY accepted payment methods) (NO CREDIT CARDS, I.O.U.'s, Etc.) Personally I recommend that you do not tell the "mail store clerk" that you are shipping a gun, I suggest saying it is machine parts instead, but that is your judgment call, not mine. I am a licenced FFL dealer and it IS legal to ship to me. DO make sure you insure the parcel for at LEAST the replacement cost + payments. The delivery address for UPS or FedEx ONLY is: TJ's Custom - 3347 Caroline Ave. - Culver City - CA - 90232 NO "DROP OFF" OR VISITORS ALLOWED - NO EXCEPTIONS

Q: Will your "Short" trigger really make the reach to the trigger closer ? A: Not really, you see there is only about 1/8" of material that you have to play with there,

what my trigger does do (which the Sig trigger doesn't) by it's specific ergonomic design and being more narrow and rounded, is that it guides your finger in so you tend to shoot with the trigger in the crevice of your finger rather than shoot with the pad (your finger tip). You see many people don't realize that a double action auto should be shot as a revolver, NOT as a single action auto like a 1911. On a 1911 you typically have a very minimal trigger travel distance and usually a very light break (pull). You have more leverage and strength in your finger the closer you get to the inner part of your hand, so by shooting at the crevice, you will shoot more stable and will also have the illusion of a lighter trigger pull.

Q: What is the toughest finish for my gun ? A:Black Teflon is the most corrosion resistant without a doubt, however, HardChrome is the toughest, and will basically never wear out and is extremely resistant to scratches and holster wear. HardChrome is basically the equivalent of a super hardened stainless steel plating. You can get HardChrome as well as Nickel in either "Matte" (glass bead blast dull finish), "Satin" (a soft brushed semi gloss texture), or "High Polish" (like a mirror). The Teflon is always a 100% flat non-reflective matte black coating. Q: If I want to get my gun plated, should I have you do your work before or after I get the plating done ? A: Well . . . assuming that you do not want me to do the plating work, you should have the gun plated BEFORE my work, not after. Be SURE that the plater does NOT plate ANY internal parts, as it changes tolerances and adds porosity. This is exactly the reason you want to plate it before my work. If I do the work and then you have it plated, parts like the hammer, slide, etc., that you will undoubtingly have plated, will no longer have the smooth mirror finish I put on them and you will wonder what happened to that smooth function you just paid me for. When I do the plating, I do the smoothing BOTH before and AFTER I do the plating, that is why some of my plating prices cost more than a "job shop" plater. Please also note that if you send me a gun that does have the internal parts plated, I will not be able to give you the same quality of work, and often will have to charge you extra to remove the plating on certain internal parts, or, on rare occasion, I will refuse to work on it altogether (only if the internals are plated with NP3 or nickel). Q: Why does your action job cost more than some of your competitors ? A: First of all, I do not feel as though I have any competitors. I do a very special service and while there are many other gunsmiths out there, some good and some bad, I feel that my work is unique. My only true response to that question is, take apart one of the guns that I have re-worked, and do the same to one done by another gunsmith. I'm sure that when you inspect the internal parts you will clearly see where all my time & labor goes into. As you can read on my "TJ Info" web page, I have taken the time & the challenge to go beyond the "normal' gunsmithing techniques and have, by doing so, learned many "tricks" to make each action work better than those done by others. These "tricks" can ONLY be learned by years of trial & error experience, and experimentation on my own prototype guns. I have pioneered many ideas in the handgun field, some are acknowledged but most are not, as with so many inventors and innovators of our century and the last.

Q: Why does your plating cost more than some of your competitors ? A: My refinishing prices may INITIALLY appear higher then some of my competitors. This is because my plating prices also include metal preparation both BEFORE AND AFTER the actual plating. This is the ONLY way to fully assure that any unwanted porosity will be eliminated and thus not effect the function parts. My plating prices also include cleaning up and inspecting all related internal parts, as well as properly fitting all the parts back together after plating, NOT just slopping everything back together and saying "it fits good enough". ASK MY COMPETITORS IF THEY DO ALL THIS . . . THEN COMPARE PRICING. Q: What do you think about the new Sig's ? A: As with nearly all things made today, the quality SEVERELY falls behind the quality of the same items made years earlier. A gun made 5 years ago is MUCH better than one made today, and one made 10 years ago is MUCH better than that one ! The current cast hammers fall FAR behind the quality / workmanship / workability of the older machined hammers. Now for specifics . . . the 245 = very good gun & design, the 232 = virtually the SAME as the 230, personally I prefer the 230, the SigPro = JUNK (some brain storm engineer thought it was smarter to complicate the mechanism like the HK USP rather than stay with the excellent design of the other Sig line.) Beretta = Don't sell them short ! They are the ONLY company that I can think of at this time that has NOT compromised the quality of their guns and design ! My sincere hat's off to Beretta !!! I can't believe that S&W has the audacity to make & install a PLASTIC disconnector in some of their semi auto pistols ! That is only the 3rd most important part in the trigger mechanism ! If you buy a S&W that is 5 years old+ you should be ok . I will however, congratulate them on their excellent customer service though. Q: What work would YOU recommend for my pistol ? A: I would start with a "Level 1 Package" (typically $395) ( my Level 1 Package includes all the Action work & internal smoothing, a TJ stainless short rounded trigger (Sig 220, 225, 226, 228, 229) or customizing your existing trigger by rounding-radiusing-polishing (re-shaping it to be much more ergonomic and have a nice smooth silver finish), a throat & polish of the feed ramp & barrel to ensure a high level of feeding reliability, and fit & polish the extractor (to enhance case extraction as well as reduce the chance of extractor breakage). I would also recommend my stainless steel hex grip screws (for Sig pistols) ($10-$20), Satin Polish the barrel ($20) or High Polish ($30) or Jewelled barrel ($95) Highlight the front sight in DayGlo (stock sights or night sights, same price $10), If you carry the gun concealed I would definitely recommend "bobbing" the hammer ($75) (making it mandatory D.A.O. on the FIRST shot) or possibly if you still want to be able to cock the hammer manually, a semi bob ($125) (helps eliminate snagging when drawing from clothing), and if you do not have night sights already I recommend getting a set of Meprolight night sights ( typically $155 - Sig ). ( All + S/H ($39 ) Finish? If you like silver, Satin Hard Chrome finish is my favorite, or if you prefer a non-reflective finish I recommend my Black Teflon. Q: What exactly is your "DayGlo" sight highlighting and can you do it on night sights ? A: My "Day-Glo" sight highlighting is a bright florescent color coating that I apply to the face of your front

TJ's Custom Gunworks Price List - JANUARY 2008

sight, it is very bright and draws your eye(s) to the front sight in the daytime. It is very bright and is very resistant to most solvents. It is available in Red, Orange, Yellow, and Green. It does not have any effect in the night and does not glo in the dark, that is what Tritium night sights are for. Yes, it can be applied to any sight, whether it's a stock sight, a dot sight, or a Tritium night sight. Q: Why do you prefer Meprolight sights over the other brands ? A:There are good and bad sights out there, and there are good and bad companies out there. I have found that Meprolight has been absolutely the best company as far as brightness longevity, and more importantly, for standing behind their sights if & when they do go dead. I have boycotted certain companies for 10 years + because of a severe lack of warrantee honor. I don't want to name anyone in particular, but I'll say their name starts with a Trij ! Many other companies fall somewhere in between. Q: How much should I fire my gun before I send it in for action work ? A: None, or as much as you want ! The myth that you need to shoot your gun to break it in is based on the false idea that the metal is soft enough to "work in", FORTUNATLY ... modern guns are NOT that soft ! Think of it like this ... if it were soft enough to "break in" in 500 rounds, then it would also figure that it would also be soft enough to WEAR OUT in maybe 5000 right ? It won't happen, except possibly in some cheap south american made guns. You should shoot it just enough to feel the difference when you get it back from me ! Q: I would like to order some of your parts, what do I need to do ? A: Just send payment (CASH (wrapped in newspaper etc.), Money Order, or Cashiers Check / Bank Check) to the address below with a request describing what it is you want to order, the model of your gun and the color / finish of the parts you are requesting. Include an email address in case there is any problem or question I have about your order. Make SURE your address is very readable & legible. Parts are NOT insured unless you pay insurance charges ($5) and request insurance, I am NOT responsible for parts once I deliver them to the post office.

Q: I still have questions, how can I contact you ??? A: Your first & easiest way to contact me is to E Mail me your questions. If you write BRIEF questions, and separate them in INDIVIDUAL lines, I will be able to address each question much better and more directly. The other alternative is to send me $10 cash or money order and I will call you back. ( Please try to include the best times to call you in the afternoon or evenings. ) I know there will be some people out there that will view this solely as arrogance, it is not. I WAS spending 50%-70% of my "open hours" talking and answering questions for free and getting paid nothing for this service. As of "March 2000" I will no longer be a free directory assistance and free data bank. I am very glad to continue to provide the service to you, only I want some compensation for my time, I don't think I am being that unreasonable, do you ? I feel that if someone is willing to send me $10 then they are probably serious, and if they are not willing

to part with $10 then they are probably looking for free advice. At least if they do send the $10 I will be getting paid for my time & professional advice, right ? You can send payment to : TJ's Custom Gunworks PO Box 328 Culver City, CA 90232, USA TJ's Custom Gunworks Home Page On The Internet

TJ'S 2k POLICIES ON LOCAL CUSTOMERS AND PHONE CALLS

I will begin by apologizing to my good and loyal customers that unfortunately will be effected by my new working policies that I have been forced to enact due to the "other" people that call constantly and only seek free advice and "chat" and tell me their life stories. I would also like to say . . . " I AM still here, I AM still working on your guns ! " I have just changed my policies so that I am spending more time doing the physical gunsmithing and less time doing the sales / advising / guidance. Those of you that have gotten to know me through the years, know that I work 6-7 days a week and a minimum of 12 hours a day. I do it so I can give the kind of service and turnaround that I would want from someone else. ( you know . . . "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." ) I have finally decided that I need to get paid not only for the bench time but also for the "guidance" time as well. I do NOT want to hire help to do the gun work as others have done, the work quality suffers, and if I was to hire someone to answer your questions, they would probably not give you the answers you want, as well as forcing me to raise all my prices to cover their salary, so I feel that THESE new policies are the best way to deal with the situation at least for now. I don't know if this new policy will be temporary or permanent but it is necessary for now. I will still continue to answer all E mail , and hopefully be able to answer all your questions. If you write BRIEF questions, and separate them in INDIVIDUAL lines, I will be able to address each question much better. The other alternative is to send me $10 cash or money order and I will call you to address your questions. ( Please try to include the best times to call you in the afternoon or evenings. ) I know there will be some people out there that will view this solely as arrogance, it is not. I was spending 50%-70% of my "open hours" talking and answering questions for free and getting paid nothing for this service. As of "March 2000" I am no longer a free directory assistance and free data bank.

to part with $10 then they are probably looking for free advice. At least if they do send the $10 I will be getting a LITTLE compensation for my time & advice. I realize that some people will not like my new policies, and am sorry, but there is only 24 hours in a day and I have to actually DO the work sometime, I can't do it while talking on the phone or taking in local customer's guns. As for my valued local customers, I also apologize to you for I will no longer be able to accept your guns in personally and for free, I like to guide you and try to make sure you order exactly what you need or want, but the visits seem to usually extend to the point that I am spending as much time taking the gun in as I do working on it. My new policies DO still provide for you though. You can drop off guns to me by appointment for an ADDITIONAL fee of $100 ( Paid immediately upon entry. Fee is for my time to see and talk to you not for the work. ) or I have made solid arrangements to take your guns in for work at Mission Loan & Jewelry, they will charge a log-in fee of $15, and I will get the gun(s) within a week or two. They will also have my current price list and samples of my work there. They are in the Ontario - Inland Empire area, you can drop your gun(s) off at: Mission Loan & Jewelry (909) 591-5023 5138 Mission Blvd, Ontario, CA, 91762 ( 3/4 Block West of Central Ave. ) They are VERY reliable and will hold your gun for my weekly pickups. Or of course, you are very welcome to UPS or FedEx your guns to me as everyone else does. When dropping off your gun(s), you MUST provide:

q q q

#1 A letter/note with a description of the work you want performed, #2 Your full name, address, and phone number, #3 FULL payment for the work in advance (CASH or Money Order ONLY). Or of course, you are very welcome to UPS or FedEx your guns to me as everyone else does.

I hope you all will try to understand, why things have to be this way, and hope that you will not lose your confidence in me just because I don't have time to chat on the phone etc..
