All of the parts minus the beavertail are relatively easy to learn how to do as long as you get good documentation. Blindhogg.com/gunsmithing.html is a good place for info.

The beavertail is a little tough and i would recommend against getting a drop in. Even though your RIA BT isnt very nice, chances are you will like the installed new one even less. If you want to do it, buy a WC or EB and buy the jig

I installed a 10-8 Short/Curved trigger into my RIA. Highly satisfied.

EGW is heralded as a quality parts manufacturer. I have a custom barrel bushing and an extended magazine release from them, immaculate parts.

I don't believe there are any known parts to consistently fail in a RIA out of the box.

Remember to research when it comes to modifying critical parts such as the trigger, sear, hammer, etc.
