    Hey,
    Last Fall I picked up a brand-new Taurus PT145. Before I could even shoot it, the built-in Taurus safety thingee broke. I think I may have fixed it so that it will fire, but I want to find a gunsmith in my area to take a look at it before trying that. And yes, I know I could ship it to Taurus to get fixed, but that would take a while and cost a bunch in shipping.
    So..... Anyone know any good gunsmiths in the central coast (Newport/Lincoln City) or Corvallis area?
    Thanks!

    I'll withhold my opinions about locks and taurii in general, but as I understand it -- Taurus is one of the best about returns and repairs. Call them up and they should take it in to fix regardless if you're the original owner.


    Also there is a place on the road between albany and lebanon that does a lot of work. Can't vouch for the work since I havent had anything done there, but they're friendly. Rangemasters or something I think

    Does anyone do blue work anymore? the place i normally go only seems to work on modern guns. I got an old one that needs a little help looking good again. I've heard about Rangemasters, but I can't seem to hit him while he's open. Anyone got some info for me?

    Rangemasters is usually open Friday and Saturday (I believe he closes the shop on Wed & Thurs in order to do his gunsmithing). Nice guy and did a great job installing sights on a 45 for me. He is now located just east of Covallis - corner of Hwy 34 and Merloy.
