    I'm still partial to using a thing called a "phone book"...but I guess most people prefer to google these days. Maybe not?

    shotgunner2012: you can contact him via PM. I see he posted in the Shooting Forum, "How much ammo can you take on Alaska Airlines?" Post #10. I'm sure there is an easier way, but that should work.

    I'll vouch for him any old day!
    He works out of his home? PHONE NUMBER or EMAIL? THANKS!

    There once was a used car dealership in East Missoula called "The Lemon Orchard".

    Best of luck getting the rifle squared away.

    My comment was not dig at gunbugs either. Their are few good smiths up here, gunbugs up north couple here in the valley and couple in anchorage why folks don't do more research is beyond me. If no one up here meets ones requirement send the gun out of state to reputable smith, but that would require research on ones part.

    Gunbugs is a good gun mechanic. I won't speak for him, but he's a standup guy, and he'll readily speak for himself as to what level of work he will or will not undertake...but by my experience, he won't undertake anything he's not fully qualified to accomplish appropriately. Never heard of the other outfit.

    started a topic Avoid Deviant Arms, Fairbanks

    Avoid Deviant Arms, Fairbanks

    This "shop" ruined my rifle that was a simple mauser rebarrel project.
    They held onto it for 8 months, cut the chamber to deep, messed up the bolt handle then refused to let me speak to the owner or privide a refund. During the time it was at the shop i could never get ahold of anyone, i had to drive to fairbanks in person to check on my rifle and half the time it was closed.

    Finally i had enough of the excuses and took my property away from them. I sent certified mail to the buisness which was returned.

    Stay away from this place
