    Hello everyone.
    Does anyone have a reliable gunsmith that they could recommend to me? With all the happenings as of late my landlord has decided she'd like to get back into shooting. She has a .38 special that needs a little spring work, something about some burrs that need filing down (her description, not mine) and also she has a 16 gauge pump action shotgun that has been sitting around for 20 years or better. It may just need a good cleaning and lube but she wants someone that would go over it and make sure everything is in working order.

    thanks for your help!

    Most of the ones i know are close to mt hood,and back logged for several months,so probably not much use to you.
    Don out at the Powder Horn is a good guy.
    Actually i just thought of one,call out to Allison & Carey on Stark,they are in Portland.

    JPL Precision in Redmond is a great guy and does very nice work! Plus it's a great opportunity to bask in the warm and humble atmosphere surrounding the Microsoft campus! :bluelaugh:
