    Rifle or pistol? Make, model, etc. would be helpful.
    Everyone has the right to their own opinion, but that doesn't mean that every opinion is right.

    Hey Rambo,
    Cant think of the guy's name at the moment but I'm sure that you have a gunsmith in your neck of the woods. Think he specialised in custom African rifle builds but pretty sure he did normal gunsmithing as well. I want to say John Hall....but I can't be sure. Someone here will probably know.

    Just had a PM asking if this was a wind up for Rambo. My apologies if it appeared to be one - it was an honest answer with no idea of any existing history or experiences.

    I know it was honest and didn't take it badly at all as my reply up the page page sums up

    I know john well and he has built a couple of great rifles for me and he is a great gunsmith however john is not getting any younger and only works part time (fair enough at his age) so there for his wait times can be long (normally don't mind the wait - good things take time) but want this job done quick which is why im looking at going else where

    Get hold of dfmaisey and see what he can do for you, a friend of our family who is an ex gunsmith is always recommending him to me if I need to get any work done on rifles.
