    Hi,

    I have a pre-remington guide gun .45-70. The action has gone stiff and won't pickup a round properly from the magazine tube. I took it apart, cleaned it, but I can't spot what is wrong with it. Does anyone have a recommended gun smith for lever rifles? OR, WA or possible Idaho, will travel for a good smith.

    Thanks!

    CK

    While I've never had work done by him, Velsey is widely respected on the forum! :)

    Now I have had Velsey fix up a gun, and I know why he has that respect!

    Glad you are having this sourced out. Lever rifles are one of those actions that too much in the wrong place can cause a problem in another.

    Looking forward to the update and report of how it works afterwards.

    Will do! This is probably my favorite rifle but I am in no rush for perfection. =)
