Re: ? gunsmiths

You have no idea how many times I have seen this exact issue! The bolt stop probably wasn't cut either. There is some pretty sceptical work out there lately that has been coming in to be repaired. Makes a guy wonder for sure.

Travis, it's the good enough syndrome.
The internet has made a multitude of gunsmiths off of you-tube.
Just look at all the post on other forums about guys wondering what to look for when buying a lathe.
Thats the only video missing from youtube

Re: ? gunsmiths

I think most of us are only concerned with what we do. A high volume shop with a nation wide customer base will see more Hack, I see very little and it is almost entirely do it yourself oriented. The old retired smith's are still out there but they only work on what they want and for those they choose. I find it difficult to believe judging by my own area that a really good gunsmith is more than a short drive away and in any direction that should be chosen.

I'm not suggesting or pointing fingers but I do have a story that many of us can relate to. We call him" bicycle Bob" and he has been such an annoyance that he will not find anyone willing to work on his firearms in this area. He has had his firearms handed back to him in a sack by 3 of us and each time in a different state of unrecognizable Hack. Should he send you his firearms, it's not anyone of us and you are far enough away that caller I.D should take care of the problem.
