HP Gun Smith Referrals

I just purchased a California approved standard BHP with adjustable sight. Now the 10 day waiting period begins.
I am accustom to Wilson Combat 1911's so the trigger on the Hi Power was a bit of a surprise, but not unexpected as I have been reading this sub forum for a while.
After taking possession of the HP, I would like to send it off for a trigger job, a round hammer and maybe have some aesthetic work performed (chrome frame for the two-tone look).
I would greatly appreciate any referrals for gunsmiths that specialize in Hi Powers and if they were in southern California it would be a big plus.
Thank you in advance.

I have had Cylinder and Slide do some amazing work on one of my BHP's that I carry as my EDC. Very nice. Wide combat trigger, mag well. Turn around was about 7 weeks. I believe they are in Nebraska.

I'm not aware of anyone in CA. Many members here, including me, will recommend Don Williams. There are many examples of his work in various threads.

Another vote for Don Williams, Chino Valley, AZ. Does great work, and is always a gentleman to deal with.
