  1. Any gunsmiths specializing in CZ Shadow 2 near Swansea Ma

    The Shadow 2 is a fairly recent design, and is basically just a more modern interpretation of the SP-01 Shadow. They are surprisingly easy guns to work on, especially compared to a regular CZ-75 with a decocker. There is really not a lot of room for slide or frame customization on these guns...
  2. Gunsmithing Services

    Hey Gang! Hope everyone is enjoying this nice weather and has been able to get some shooting in. Just a few quick updates: The town is installing new fire hydrants on Rt. #1, and there is substantial traffic due to the highway equipment working. We are down to one lane on our stretch for a few...
  3. S&W "Restricted" parts

    We are S&W armorers who deal with the factory frequently over the last decade, and S&W will not sell us trigger bars, striker blocks, slides, strikers, etc. They claim all of their semi auto parts for MA compliant guns are under "part control", and always want the gun returned to the factory...

    Hello New England. From one Vet to a whole bunch of others, thank you for your service, and Happy Veteran's Day. We take it for granted these days, but we Americans have great privileges and freedoms because of the costs you and those before you paid, and continue to pay. Also, Happy belated...
  6. Failure to feed, WASR 10/63

    You are in an unfortunate situation here. This rifle has what we call a "single stack" bolt installed. It was never intended to be converted to accept double stack magazines, and it will not function correctly with them in its current configuration. This is unfortunately a very common garage...
  7. Can you thread bolt action rifle barrel for brake with action still attached?

    Your barrel can absolutely be threaded with the action still attached, as long as your gunsmith has access to a lathe with a 4" spindle or greater. The rem 700 is a pretty skinny action, and they are very easy guns to work with. All that being said, there is literally zero downside to removing...
  8. Local gunsmith to chop a 16" AR Barrel to 14.5 and pin.

    Current Market value to thread an AR barrel is about $120, an additional $40 for a pin and weld, and many places will charge you hourly "assembly labor" on top of that. It is usually cheaper/less work to buy the barrel you want than to thread a used barrel, assuming you don't want a high end...
  9. Need some work done to a collector's rifle.

    We dont care who you get to fix this rifle for you, but please dont hit it with a hammer and a punch! These are awesome little carbines, and the front sights come off with a special puller tool and some heat.
  10. Bradford USPSA Sunday September 17, 2017

  12. Need to shed .3 ounces.

    The easiest fix for this is to just throw the factory guide rod back in. As a guy who builds and customizes (and competes in USPSA with) Glocks for a living, I promise you are not getting as much performance increase as you think from a heavy steel guide rod.
  13. Gunsmithing Services

    Hey Gang, just a quick reminder: We will be closed all day on Thursday July 27th for training at SIG Academy. We will be in the shop tomorrow (wed 7/26) from 10-5, Friday 10-7, and Saturday 10-5. As always, we are closed Sundays and Mondays. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause...
  14. Gunsmithing Services

    Hey Gang, just a quick update. The gunsmiths have survived their vacation, and are back in New England. We will be back to normal hours on Tuesday July 11th, and will do our best to maintain them all summer. We apologize to anyone who came by to see us while we were out of town. Come by next...
  15. Target Barrel Re-Crown Referrals Central Mass. Or DIY?

    I totally appreciate and understand this sentiment. I am primarily a refinishing shop, and I am in no way trying to sell my own labor with my comment. I have been doing this most of my life, and I was simply trying to help. MA, in my opinion, does not have access to a lot of true long range...
