Hi Randy, Do you know of a good gunsmith? I have a Remington 870 slug gun that I want to have the barrel pinned and a scope base dilled and tapped. I live in the Tinley Park IL. area. Like to find one 50 miles or less. Thanks for any INFO. {hs#

Tried to PM you Randy but couldn't for some reason.

My brother lives in Tinley.

I'd call Midwest Gun Works: https://www.midwestgunworks.com/gunsmithing.html . They do a fine job.

Thanks Randy, I have used MGW 2 times before they do a great job!
I wanted to ask you if you had a gunsmith in our area that you use. I'm going to just sent it to MGW I know it will be done right.

I understand that. My regular gunsmiths are mostly retired or semi-retired, and I'm always leery about recommending folks that are six months behind. MGW is very good, and the turnaround is faster than most as well.

Randy Wakeman, would you recommend MGW to tighten up the action on a well used Japanese Winchester 101?

I've not used them for that, but I would certainly call them and would have no problem doing so.

Beka Hello, how can I help you today?

Randy Do you do complete action rebuilds on old Winchester 101 O/U shotguns, as in an "action tightening"?

Beka let me check with my gunsmith on this

yes we can do a rebuild on this model

Randy It looks like the cost is $340. What is the cirrent turnaround time?

Randy Very good, thank you.Delivered
