Machining the internals along with a KMP trigger and sear, a trigger return spring and refinishing runs $200 and includes return shipping.Never used a lee 80% plate or trigger & sear....never knew they existed.
Lee has all the parts to build a semiauto 1919...... WITH YOUR KIT!
as a comparison
70% plate....$120 or less ..I forget
Trigger & sear.$125...+-
rivet set30-40 bucks
Machine your internals...say 120..not sure of current pricing
do the math....you [email protected] least $ 150+ and have top shelf parts
better yet upgrade to a Halo 100% plate with your savings.
OOW had a sale on semi parts yesterday...$ 799 IIRC...a bit steep for me but Does include Internals (bolt ,bbl ext ,lockframe ,trigger & sear ) IIRC
They make some bada$$ replacement springs for the Sterling SMG, I know that much.I am with most everyone else here. You can't go wrong with a Halo or KMP plate. And KMP triggers and sears are just the industry standard. However, Lee is one of the pioneers of this stuff and, as Brian said, they were doing this before KMP or Halo were. No doubt about it. Also, they have been here posting stuff in recent months. Though I had not seen them as an active presence until recently, they have always been around if you knew about them. I have never seen their product and so I can't speak to the quality, but I have not heard anything negative over the years. Always willing to welcome a vendor who puts out a good product and good service.
