South African gun smith wanted.

Does anyone know of a long range gunsmith in South Africa? I have a good friend that lives there and is looking for a top hand to put together his next rifle. Any contact information would be great.

Thanks and good hunting.

Contact Louw Van Deventer at Advanced Gunsmithing in Potchefstroom. He understands what is required. Phone 018 297 4702 from within SA. He does not have e-mail and the phone number doubles as a fax number.

Re: South African gun smith wanted.

Q-Wagoner,
I will not be able to take on a smithing project before February or March 2006. If he wants to get started before then, e-mail me what the project entails and let me see if I can recommend the best smith in each area of expertise. Some guys are better than others, with metalwork or stock making, and some have limited access to oddball reamers and gauges. gerard(at)wol.co.za

Hi Dave,
Did I build something for you? I recall your name but if you beat me with a stick I cannot remember in what connection.
