Would you share where you ordered them from?

Top Gun publishes a list of parts required for the conversion in their FAQ section. I priced them from the TG site and it came to a little over $200 not including grips.

From DAO to DA/SA
Ordered everything from Top Gun Supply except the hammer strut pin. These were not in stock. total was 83.69 W/shipping. Ordered hammer strut pins from Mid West Gun Supply. 2-5.00 pins cost almost 20.00 because of shipping. I ordered two just in case?
New grip screws from Hogue 17.00 n change. I ordered these prior to deciding on doing the conversion otherwise I would have ordered through top gun Supply. My 229 has the factory grips for the DA/SA action. Savings
I have also been able to source some hogue and G10 grips locally. so the grips have not been a cost factor. (Barter system)

This is all with out including if/when I order the Short reset sear and safety.

It is possible that your new hammer will come with the hammer strut pin already installed.

If not, be careful installing the strut pin. The pin is a rather tight fit in the hammer and will take some hefty blows to drive it in which has the potential to crack the yoke of the hammer. I use an old set of blade type feeler gages and select a "stack" of blades that fit tightly in the gap where the strut goes (careful not to block the pin hole) to support the hammer yoke while driving the pin into position.
