Gentlemen, I have recently acquired a W.&C. Scott Premier ejector 12 ga. made circa 1890, with the Triplex Lever Grip top fastener, instead of the later square crossbolt. Anyway, the gun is just the slightest bit off-face with the forend off, but you can't really tell it any other way. What, in your opinion would you do to fix this problem and who would you send it to?Other that that,the gun is in beautiful shape,barrels and all, and is one of the few early model bar action sidelock ejector Scotts I have run across. Regards, Marcus

I'll put in a good word for Bill Schwarz in Ellijay Ga. He tightened up my old Sauer Daly which was very slightly off face. He built up the locking bolts by welding on, and then filed them down to fit. He works on a lot of high end guns, when I stopped by a couple of weeks ago to pick up a lowly field grade Smith he was working on a Parker A1 Special. Your old gun is exactly the type he specializes in.

Some Scott Premiers had adjustable lumps, if so there would be two screws in the front lump. One is a lock for the adjusting screw. If yours has this you may be able to make the adjustment yourself.

Definitely have the gun tightened. Another method for a high grade gun would be to have the hinge pin replaced with a larger size. If the additional cost isn't a barrier a new hinge pin is usually preferable.

Would you happen to have Mr. Schwarz's address and phone no. I would like to talk with him. Is he fairly prompt in getting things repaired that you have sent him? Thanks, Marcus

Bill Schwartz contact info: 767 Brushy Top Rd, Ellijay, GA 706-276-7668. I have been pleased with his work (built main spring on English hammergun, relayed barrels and rust blued, and repaired a couple safeties). Turnaround has always been prompt (much less than 60 days for these tasks).
