I've said it before. If you take your gun to a gunsmith, and it comes back with "evidence" that he's worked on it, then you really do need to find someone else to do the work.

+1 on what Mike Rowe said.

That said, I've been unpleasantly surprised by some highly recommended gunsmiths & several manufactures of not inexpensive guns & I once had a well known known gunsmith tell me that "you can't expect me to take the time to remove a tight fitting screw w/a thin slot w/o out buggering it up a bit."

I do all the repairs/disassembly I can on my own! I've got lots of time now that I'm retired & a buggered screw is a real pain to properly correct & usually easy to avoid w/a bit of care.

I thought that in the early years and perhaps today in the UK , guys would send there guns in at the end of the season for servicing. Taken apart. A done for many years, year in and year out. Still an original gun.

I make it a point to turn most of the screws on my guns, just often enough to cover the maintenance intervals.
Haven't wrecked one since I was about 17. That said, I own a few guns with less than perfect screws. If the gun is useful, and functions as it should, I can live with a tacky screw done by someone else, about as well as I can live with handling marks in the stock.

Best,
Ted

That is just mean-spirited and totally uncivil Ed. I hope a flock of crows that are infected with West Nile Virus crap on your head.


A true sign of mental illness is any gun owner who would vote for an Anti-Gunner like Joe Biden.
