Can I send you my gun by UPS to have you work on it? Yes, you can take your gun to UPS and ship it directly to us for us to work on it. Normally it is illegal for non Federally licensed dealers to ship guns, but the exception to the law is if sending a gun to be worked on or repaired. After the work is completed we will ship it back to you on UPS or Federal express.
Can you remove the barrel, true the action, then reinstall the barrel? No, well maybe, when we true an action, one of the most important operations we perform, is to re-cut the threads in your action in line, and centered to the bore of the action. When we do this, the threads on your action are now larger than the threads on your barrel. To reinstall the same barrel we cut the old threaded shank off, then rethread it and rechamber the barrel (this is commonly referred to as setting the barrel back). If the barrel is reasonably new and of suitable diameter after cutting and rethreading, we can do this.
Do you lap the lug's in my action? No, when we build your gun, or true your action and fit and chamber your barrel their is no need to lap the lugs, because we machine the lugs on the bolt and the lug abutments to such close tolerances that they are now in full contact and perfect alignment. It is not unusual for a customer to have a factory rifle that the lugs are not making full contact. If this is the case with your gun then we still don't recommend lapping the lugs. Some of the problems with lapping the lugs include; increasing headspace, charging the lugs with lapping compound which continues to accelerate wear even after you achieve full contact, changing firing mechanism geometry (example would be, Winchester mod. 70 after lugs are lapped sometimes the safety no longer works) their are many more arguments for not lapping lugs than their are to endorse it, so we don't.
Can I provide my own parts and have you build me a gun? Yes, in fact we prefer that you do, and you will save a little money if you do the phone calls and leg work.
What if you don't have the reamer for the cartridge I want? Normally we will generate a chamber print and order the reamer that you want. If it is a reamer that we think we can use again their will be no charge. If we don't think we will need the reamer then Their will be a charge for it.
I noticed that you make your own stocks and muzzle brakes, will you build me a gun using another manufacturers parts? Yes, we realize that our parts are designed to serve a very specific purpose, and that may not be what you have in mind. We use most manufacturers parts, in fact most of the guns we build use parts made by others.
Can I have you do part of the work on my gun and then do the rest myself? Yes, in fact it is not uncommon for our customers to have us just do specific parts of the work and then complete the gun themselves.
What methods of payment do you accept? The quickest is Certified funds, Visa, or Mastercard, we also accept personal or company checks but it will delay shipment until the check clears.
Are the products you list in stock and how soon will you ship once I place an order? Our products are normally in stock ready to ship. If the item you want is temporarily out of stock we can give you an estimate of when we will have it in and you can back order it if you wish. All in stock items are shipped within 24 hours.
How long will it take you to build my gun? It usually takes six to twelve weeks from the time we have all of your parts in stock. We actually put the gun on my schedule after all parts are in.
