WOW! where to start, My father in law brought two guns to be worked on to this pathetic excuse of a EMPORIUM (LOL), the moment we entered the guy started cracking really tasteless jokes and I new I would not leave my weapons with him,'
My Dad left a Remington 30-06 that needed a new cocking piece, and an old 410 that needed a spring, he left them before Christmas and was told that he had a gun show and he would not be able to work on them till Jan 15th, OK no problem!
Skip the page, in March he was told we would come and get them if they were done or not.
We went to pick them up three months after they were droped off
He charged $210 , (wanted cash only) but charged an extra 6% to accept a credit card, cause he has no PHONE service and has to call it in.
My dad asked him to chamber and extract three rounds to check function because he did not test fire, He did and he aimed the ejection port at my dad (intentionally) and pulled the bolt violently and hit him with the round, (LIVE)
He then proceeded to explain how we were so lucky he could find the part and that there were none left in america and he was soooooo great that he helped us YADA YADA YADA,
well rifle now does not have its original bolt, he charged $50 labor to release and slide in a used replacement bolt,
This story can go on and on I completely agree with the other comments
I found the part we needed at Numeric gun parts for $6, or an entire new bolt for $55, if we wanted a non original bolt, we could have slid this one in and saved $150
. This man Is nothing more than a snake oil salesman, He has no shop, no inventory no emporium, and No personality, DO NOT LET HIM TOUCH YOUR WEAPON HE WILL RIP YOU OFF!!!!
