WHAT WILL IT COST?
Since most work is custom, I price out each project based on the specifics of the project, parts and finish. Some standard modifications have set prices listed under services.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?
Well that depends on the complexity of the project and where in the batting order you are. Some work services get done weekly and turn around is fast. Some small work can be done while you wait, but that is by appointment only. After 21 years of servicing shooters, I have a good handle on when things can get done and provide updates along the way.
WHAT IS YOUR BACKLOG FOR 1911 BUILDS?
Usually a year or less depended once again what is getting done. Damascus builds can take longer due to the demand for Damascus from Caspian. If a matching knife and holster is part of the project I am at the mercy of those craftsmen and their schedules.
WILL YOU TEST MY GUN?
Yes each pistol or revolver in for trigger work and or function issues. I do require clients to provide function ammo or charge them accordingly. Ransom Rest accuracy testing is offered only for Bullseye level guns. All
others are tested out of my steady hand.
HOW DO I SHIP TO YOU?
I accept UPS and FedEX, you must check with the carrier for their specific guidelines for shipping a firearm. I return the same way and insure for the value of the finished project.
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT
That is OK. I work with each client to tailor his or her project to them. I try to get a feeling for what YOU want to accomplish and work to that goal. I have plenty of experience and am willing to share it with you.
DO YOU WARRANTY YOUR WORK?
Yes I back all my work and the parts I use are backed by the manufactures who made them. My motto is “ We aren’t married, but we are now cousins.
