Default Trigger guard

Has anyone thought about metal 3D printing to create a metal trigger guard. I know they can do intricate parts now. I haven't looked into yet myself beyond finding a few websites. I'm just throwing it out there.

Welcome to the forum. I know I would like one for my Buffalo Classic. I bought one of the brass spacers last summer from another GBO member so I would like to see if I could match it with a brass trigger guard. At some of the shoots I attend, there's a few of the Sharp's crowd that give me crap about my plastic trigger guard. They used to give me crap about the plastic spacer as well.Personally I think they're bummed that I beat them both in score and groups.

While waiting on such, which is a great idea, you could get a brass one from someone like TOW, cut the plastic one off even with the frame and install. Would look good. GW

Every site I looked at needs a computer program to do it. I was hoping that someone would be able to scan the old trigger guard and do it that way.

This is a great place to get a Trigger Guard or Spacers... I talked to this guy on the Phone and you can chose from either Brass, Blued Steel, or Stainless Steel. The cost starts around $50 for Blued Steel and goes up from there.

I haven't heard anything good about his parts. Everything I've heard says they rough and unfinished (which I can deal with) but they also have voids in the casting.

That was the only Place I could find that made replacement Guards and Spacers. Sorry I didn't know about the bad quality. I can't believe with so many Handi Rifles out there that a Competent Machinist can't be found to make these at an affordable price? Sooner or later every owner thinks of swapping the plastic out..

The best were made for H&R in blued steel, but they were discontinued long ago, I got a box of em when Gardner closed, used most of them on my H&Rs, gave several to members here.
