Possibly, probably.....but they have great service, including great turn around time.

Factory trained, doubtful.

To the best of my knowledge the only ex-Kolar smith that went out on his own after leaving Kolar was Doug Braker, and he wouldn't work on Kolars.

Kolar tightly guards most of their major parts anyways.

The only one I've ever seen listed as being "authorized" is Laurence Pylinski.

Might be worth calling Kolar and asking them that question (and reporting back as I'd be interested to know as well). Since they presumably only sell parts to certain people, the list should be short and definitive.

Local Krieghoff trained gun says he can’t get parts for Kolar.
Sure is expensive shipping a 2 barrel set with tubes.

True. But unless the answer to your original question was any ‘nearby’, you’d be shipping it somewhere

My 2¢ worth is use Kolar. If someone else does the work, even with Kolar parts, and something doesn't work you could be stuck with the non-Kolar repair person blaming the parts when it was his/her work. Kolar has great service. I think Dan Lewis is the Kolar rep for CO, but I'm not sure. I mention him because I bought my Kolar in CA from Dan and he has always been great to work with. Find Kolar's rep for CO and talk to them. Shipping charges were never that awful for me and I'm in CA, further from WI than you.

Laurence has replaced two ejectors on my Kolar. He has them in stock, they are paid for by Kolar, you just pay for the fitting. He does great work.

But he is far from Colorado.
