Need to find a gunsmith good with antiques
Can anyone recommend a gunsmith in the Anchorage area (maybe Wasilla, too) who has a solid reputation with antique firearms, but who also does general repairs on more modern guns?
I have a 1902 Colt that I want to get safety checked prior to firing, and almost all of my other guns are over 50 years old as well. (I saw my dad shoot it 20 years ago, and it didn't blow up in his hand, but you never know.) Is there anyone around who has that kind of "outdated" knowledge?
On a side note, I also have a Marlin Model 60 (probably late 70's or early 80's production) that is now a single shot rifle, and I need someone local to repair it. (It fires and extracts normally as long as the magazine is empty.)
