I tried Chai tea once and didn't like it, either. Too many spices.

I had some old perma blue laying around, and it matched the finish almost perfectly. I'll try to make it out to the range tomorrow to see how it shoots now.

I have similar feelings about an M-2, still waiting to get it... LOL

I 'tinkered' with my Mark II once and I don't ever want to have to tinker with a gun again. It was not fun for me.

I'm scared to take my gun apart again... I kind of want to put a different trigger in it but we never figured out how to get the trigger out...

You could take a truck apart and rebuild it. I could tear the analyzers down at work and put all kinds of new parts in. Let me say if you want a different trigger in your gun, take it to a gunsmith. Spare yourself the heart ache. I had springs flying all over the place around here. It was stressful and frustrating for me. If you have someone who could sit next to you and guide you through it, that's a great way to learn. I set myself back in confidence with my guns by my little venture with that thumb safety.

I would like to find someone who could show me how to change it rather than just having someone do it for me.

Cinder, try YouTube, or Brownell's or maybe MidwayUSA. one of them may have a video of them taking your type of pistol apart.

I know. That's why I said have someone sit with you to help you.

Tell me exactly what kind of gun it is and I'll find you a link. I have a friend who is a master at finding exactly what one needs on youtube.

It happens. Don't give up on tinkering just because of one bad experience.
