    A shooting buddy of mine has a Beretta DT 10 that needs trigger work done(broken springs). Please give some recommendations for good gunsmiths who would do the trigger work well and in a timely manner? We are located in Montana. Thanks, Daryl.

    Not sure I can agree that Phillips is timely on the DT10.

    In CA, I had Jim Flynn work on mine. This is the first broken trigger springs I have heard of on a DT 10. I have two of them and never had a problem.

    Randy Arndt is in Montana. He worked as a gunsmith at Beretta in Accoceek, MD for years before moving to Riverton, Montana.

    Riverton is so far out in the boonies it's actually in Wyoming.

    +1 on Phillip - I was having a very infrequent FTF issue on the second bbl. Phillip tuned them up and had them back to me inside of a week. Better than new.

    I have a writeup somewhere on how to change out the main springs. It's not too difficult - but takes some competence.

    It is not the main leaf springs. It is a very small spring that attaches to the bars that latch the hammers. Bar will not stay up to catch and lock the hammers. It is not my gun either or I would be tempted.

    if you can use a punch, you can change the 'sear spring' on the dt10 triggers.
    the problem is getting the 'spring' :( it's a very easy fix.

    I recently did some looking for "smiths" to work on my trigger and found some here on Trapshooters who recommended Coles in Maine. Link to their website above.

    Coles Gunsmithing has the springs - there are two different diameters of wire used, but they should be able to talk you through which you need.

    About a five minute job to change one out...

    I think three springs cost 10 bucks delivered.
