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
