    Default smith for older Savages?

    I have a 99A that doesn't seem to feed as smooth as it should, and a 170 with their well-known feeding issues. Were Andy still in the Valley, I'd take them to him, even though foisting the 170 on anyone you like is kinda mean. Any recommendations for a gunsmith in Anchorage or the Valley that doesn't mind working on old junk, I mean classic and unique rifles?

    Alaska Custom Firearms.

    Dimond and Old Sewrard.

    The only place I will take my firearms.

    They helped with getting a rear site on my Savage 99 and did a "once over" on it.

    My 99 had the same issue and a fella here in Juneau worked it over, he showed me what he did and it really wasn't too big of a whoop to retune the brass counter dealio if that's your issue. I'd think any smith with a sign could do it. After he showed me....heck, even I could do it.
