    South valley gun owners - scratch your heads, because this gunsmith shop was sometime ago. George's Gunsmithing was located on the south end of River Road in Eugene, but has been gone for sometime now.
    Does anyone know where George may have relocated?
    Thanks for your help

    George's Gunsmithing was out of an old, converted independent gas station/garage.

    The building was a gas station thru most of the 70's as I had a couple of friends that worked there 1969 - '72 (and it was an old building then). I'm not exactly sure when the gas station closed, but I'm sure there was an old leaking fuel tank/environmental issue that was the cause of the demise. The building was a faded blue and it was on the west side of River Rd., not far north of the porn shop (that place has been there 40+ years, a bunch of us snuck in there while still in high school before we got kicked out :cool:).

    George's Gunsmithing would have been in business sometime during the early/mid-80's and only lasted a few years at the River Rd. location. I'm not certain if this business would have been related to the current business in Veneta.
