What's the Best Stoning Fixture for Pistol Work?

What's the Best Stoning Fixture for Pistol Work?
Coffield likes the Power Series 1 stoning fixture so much he has two of them. It allows the gunsmith to accurately and repeatably stone the 1911 sear as well as other pistol parts.

Question: What would you recommend as a fixture for doing trigger work on handguns? I am nearing retirement and have always been interested in handguns. I just want to be able to do work for myself and my friends as a hobby.

Answer: By far, the very best hammer and sear fixture available for pistol work is produced by Ron Power, a legendary custom pistolsmith. His Series 1 stoning fixture is the absolute best, no question about it. The fixture takes a number of different adapters for various handguns and some rifles. It's accurate, repeatable, and beautifully made. Like all good tools, it's not cheap at about $158, but it'll last a lifetime and it's worth every penny. I like it so much; I've got two of 'em!
