A good gunsmith is hard to find, a good gunsmith who keeps you posted on everything that is happening with your firearm and that has a fast turnaround time is even rarer. Outstanding communication, customer service and of course gunsmith work. I was so impressed with the service that I sent out my SPR upper to K&M for threading and muzzle brake installation. Highly recommended for any custom work!

Ken (K&M Aerospace) exceeded my expectations at every stage of this project. He was very receptive and responsive to working with me on customizing the mods to meet my requirements and I was VERY pleased with the price quote that I received for the work that I wanted done. The turn-around time was extremely quick, especially considering it took a week just for the paint to dry. The icing on the cake was when I got the receiver back and saw the quality of Ken's work. I doubt there is anybody out there that can do better quality work on an M17S. If you want the best modifications done to your M17S, K&M Aerospace is the only choice.

Added note after Richard purchased the trigger mod: " I got the trigger mod installed and as I expected it makes a big improvement. The trigger pull is lighter as advertised but it is also smoother, more consistent and less gritty than before. I especially like the washers (I needed both of them on my gun) as it now makes the trigger rock solid.
