    I am considering adding the following upgrades to a Canik (Tristar) C 100.

    All the parts are from Cajun Gunworks.


    I am wondering if any non-professional gunsmiths out there have ever made these modifications.

    Do any of you have thoughts about Do-It-Yourself modifications?

    Are there potential legal issues associated with caring a gun that was enhanced by someone who is not a certified gunsmith?

    Thanks for sharing your wisdom.

    I know someone out there has some wisdom on this!
    Please share.

    I am thinking that carrying a self-modified gun--when one is not a certified gunsmith--is probably unwise.

    You’re only swapping parts out. The parts are made by a well-known company with a very good reputation. If you’re up to the task, go for it. If you run into trouble, take it to a gunsmith.

    I don’t see any legal ramifications for upgrading your firearm with quality parts from CW.

    I’ve done many upgrades over the years. Some I’ve liked some I didn’t and put them back to stock. I will give you some advice and pointers.

    1. Invest in a couple sets of picks, I like the sets that have multiple lengths and different styles of hooks. Get 2 sets.

    2. Get a set of either gunsmith tools or good quality small tool sets. Craftsman, kobolt, etc

    3. Small table top vice with plastic jaws

    4. Some small food storage containers and zip locks in various sizes.

    5. Sharpie pens and cloth tags if available.

    6. A good variable power LED light that can be adjusted. A good magnifying glass like a jewelers magnify glass that is lighted.

    7. Several small magnets.

    8. Label every part you remove with a tag or in an individual bag with the date, gun and model number and part numbers. I usually will keep a tote with parts I remove. This also works for parts you buy and forget to put them on until 6 months later lol.

    This gives you a place to keep and track your extra parts and if you ever sale or trade down the road you can pull the bag with the parts in them for that particular firearm.

    It can be really rewarding to work on your own stuff. Watch videos and ask questions if it’s something you don’t think you can do try to find a local gunsmith and see if you can set up an appointment and watch and learn to do the procedure.
