Services Estimate

Repair: Full Service Gunsmith Services, We work on everything from flint-lock to full auto.Dean started in the business in 1986, prior to that he worked as a military armorer in the U.S. Navy and U.S. Army, from 1981-90, experienced with most makes and models. From general repairs and deep cleaning to specialty work, including air guns and optics.

Cleaning Services: Deep cleaning includes; full tear down, inspection, replacement of worn or damaged parts, (upon approval, with extra charges), function firing (if requested). Normal cleaning costs around $70.00, more for very dirty guns and doubles. All makes and models of firearms are welcome.

Re-Barrel: We can fit pistol barrels, rifle barrels, including M-1 Garand and M-1A/M-14 rifles up to and including Match Grade modifications for these rifles.

Legal Modifications: We have extensive experience in modifications of many types of firearms. From a starter shotgun modification for fit, modifying a generic shotgun into a “house gun”, to full Match-Grade modifications for competition, for both rifles and pistols. No job is too large or too small. Of course, some of us would like some of the “fun stuff”, that are prohibited by State and/or Federal regulations, but these regulations limit what we can do and we stick to them. Contact us for any questions you may have and we will do our best to answer any questions.

Stock Fitting: Modification to existing stocks include recoil pads, shortening stocks for younger or smaller shooters, thinning fore ends, wrists and combs for better grip. In some cases build up in area may be required for a better fit.

Custom Stocks: We can reproduce stock patterns from your stock or a stock style you choose. These can take upwards of six months to complete, depending on pattern, wood type and grade, bedding, finish, tips, caps, inlays, finish and checkering.

Parts Manufacture: At times we are required to manufacture parts that are no longer available for firearms that no longer in production, including springs, both V and flat, lifters, triggers, firing pins, extractors, etc. Machine Rate is $80/hr

Safety Inspection: Includes inspection of action and bore, integrity of operating systems and, of course, safety systems. Overall safe operation of any firearm requires all of these systems to work compatibly with one another or an unsafe condition can result in injury to the owner and damage to the firearm. We strongly recommend getting inherited or long shelved firearms inspected for safety before use, as we all tend to forget why firearms were shelved in the first place.

Appraisals: $20-$65 and up. We offer appraisals for all firearms. Appraisals require that we have possession of the firearm(s) in order to fully examine the firearm for all markings, modifications, re-finish, boxes, hang tags, etc. This is something that cannot be done over the phone, because there are too many variables and condition is a huge factor in grading firearms. We have been recommended and called upon by our former Plumas County Sheriff to appraise large estate collections for widows and families of collectors.
