Wondering if anyone on this forum has or can make a new sear for an xisico xsp 180. If so roughly what would the cost be? I do have a limited experience in machining but do not have any equipment to try it myself.

If ever you try to make it yourself, just be aware that it must be hardened and tempered to resist wear. A good machinist could be able to do it, but I guess it wouldn't be cheap.

My original one was made of soft very bendable steel so after a couple hundred shots it became very unpredictable, meaning it would go off on it's own. I slightly bent it back which would work for a couple shots but then same thing so I decided to case harden it by heating it red hot and dunking in ice water. I should have used oil as it might have made the metal harder but not as brittle but unfortunately I did not so after a few shots with it working better than new it snapped!! I have a machinist friend that I'm going to talk to but was just curious if anyone here on the forum has already found some or made one.

You only hardened your sear, without tempering it, which made it harder but brittle and prone to snap. Here's a link you may find interesting:

Thanks for the info, I was aware of this however too much in a hurry to try it after I hardened it just to see if it would work so decided to try a few shots but that's all it took darn it! Now I am looking for a new sear and can't seem to find parts anywhere?
