Thread: Gunsmith on the peninsula?

  1. #1

    Default Gunsmith on the peninsula?

    Is there anyone that can cut a rifle barrel, re-crown and instal a barrel band on the peninsula?
    I've got a cz 375H&H that needs to slim down a little.

    PM is sent.
    Foolishness is a moral category, not an intellectual one.

    Clifford Hugg off Mackey Lake Road. An older guy who had a stroke some time back, but seems to get around well now. I have a Swede Mauser in there now, and can't personally vouch for his work, but he comes highly recommended from various sources and has a fully equipped shop for doing all types of gun smithing. But you wouldn't want to retain him if you were in a rush I think.

    Gator Guns can do it.... But do not expect a fast turn around time. One of my projects has been there for a very, very,very long time.

    That's why I gave up on Aaron. I had a Mossberg .22 in there for about a year; never touched, so I gave up.
    I hear there is another guy who is an Army vet.: Sgt Truesdale, but again, can't vouch for him.

    Heard nothing but good stuff about Mr. Hugg. Gator Guns could easily do it if you don't mind waiting forever and ever and ever, etc.............

    Cliff built a 300rum on a Remington action for me and I am extremely happy with it. 1/2moa if I do my part. I would definitely use him again..

    I've received the same advice from some respectable folks.

    I can now say I wouldn't recommend him. PM me if you want to find out why. My above statements might have been construed as an endorsement and I wouldn't want to lead anyone down the wrong road.
