I recently picked up a Savage bolt action rifle, an unfired 111 fcns in 30-06 I then bought a bull barrel for it from a member here. Everything is good so far. After looking at the cost of the equipment... vise, wrench, gauges, etc. I decided that I would just have a gunsmith install it since it would be cheaper. I have NEVER been to a gunsmith for work before, I have always done my own work. Long story short after a couple weeks I get the call to pick it up. Looks pretty nice. I noticed a spot on the receiver, the 'smith said something about the vise. I though it was a scuff or something, adhesive mark, whatever... nothing else was said of it. After getting home and wiping it down, I noticed that the spot did not clean up and was actually rough and damaged. Of course the gun was not in this condition when dropped off, and it was even mentioned that the vise had done something to it when I picked it up. Clearly this is a problem. Again, this is a local gunsmith who has nothing but great reviews on here and elsewhere. It seems odd that he would damage a gun like this and then only casually mention it when seeing me rub my finger over it. Nothing, not even an apology. I even asked about Duracoat pricing (my bbl is in the white) and he quoted me $200 for a barreled receiver... not even offering a discount after damaging it. Now, like I said, Ive never been to a gunsmith before, but this doesn't strike me as standard practice. I haven't contacted him yet. I wanted to get your opinions... Should I ask for a refund? Should I press for him to smooth out the damage and refinish it? What does one do in this situation?
