    Dean Maisey can do it.
    Gunworks have in the past but maybe it was a Robbie pet project.

    However to expand on the first question which seems to be answered. Which Gunsmiths do people recommend for Marlins, Winchester 92s-94 etc repairs. Sorry for thread highjack.

    Any Engineer, for that matter. I'm not sure if he's still kicking, but Thomas Rahn in Howick used to take on the odd job. Your friendly local gunshop (SAI, Serious Shooters, H+F, Guncity) should be able to point you to someone local.

    What about trigger jobs? Thinking of getting a Marlin 30/30 or 45'70 and have heard the aftermarket drop in parts for triggers are limited?

    Welding? or malfunction? Again, it's all engineering territory.

    Ask Reloaders in Onehunga, I don't know specificaly about Marlin but they get timney and vq parts etc.
    But also, engineer can make or modify, though it may be cost prohibitive.

    They may look like that in a rossi 92 but in a 94 that is a bit of an over simplification, no way I would like to make one from scratch if there was any other option. However your right I think I can repair it myself.
