sirs,

would replacing certain parts of your pistol by yourself post any problems?
for example: replacing the mainspring housing, changing the firing pin and its spring, changing the sear spring, etc.
what parts/items should only be installed or replaced by a competent gunsmith?

thank you

thank you so much for the replies.

so far, i've replaced the following simple parts myself:
guide rod, barrel bushing, and slide stop/release. i was also able to replace the mainspring housing.
i have with me a thumb safety and beavertail. when i tried putting in the thumb safety, it would not completely go through. upon checking it seems that i have to file a part of the thumb safety. i also tried putting in the beavertail. it actually fits well (aesthetically) but upon trying to engage it, i could not pull the trigger. so again, i guess, i must file some part of it. now i am tempted to file the parts myself that is why i am asking if this is ok or i have to ask a gunsmith to do it for me.

i'm expecting some springs and a complete pin set so i would eventually need a gunsmith to do the replacing.
aside from metrillo, who would you recommend po?
