This shop does good work. They charge fairly for it but get the job done right the first time, every time.

Excellent service, friendly people, and they fixed my rifle quickly and professionally. In fact, I did not ask if it was under warranty, they did it on their own and repaired it for free. I will definitely recommend them to others.

I had a rifle built to my specs off of a weatherby mark 5 action. I paid for a new douglas 28" barrel ($750), stock ($450), floorplate ($150) and trigger work. When i got the gun back it wouldnt even make a 100 yard group at all. I took it

This is the worst or the worst. A circus chimp could do a better job! Took my gun in for repair. The resident AH couldn't fix it. Avoid this place. Can't believe they are still in business.

I had a gun that needed warranty service. The guy there had a bad attitude and was a smart-ass. I got my gun back and it still wasn't fixed. I returned it and still they didn't fix it. The manufacturer advised to send it to a shop on the east coast. I got it back and it worked fine. So, if you want shoddy workmanship, done by an AH with an attitude, then take it there.

I brought my Remington Spartan SPR 453 to A&C to have the left extractor replaced. I was told rather abruptly that they don't work on that gun. Funny, it says Remington on the side, and they are a Remington service cetner. And an extractor is an easy repair. Heck, I can buy the parts online.

They offered zero help in locating someone actually willing to take my money. I also had another gun requiring service, but after the way I was treated, I would rather melt it for scrap than have A&C do the work.

I have been to this place of business 2 times in the last 15 years and both times went away disapointed and fustrated, I am 50 years old and was raised with a gun in my hand and my father was a gun collector so we have a pretty good understanding of guns and their workings, and if you approach these employees with any sign that you are thinking of doing the work yourself they clam up like a bunch of mimes, the first time i went to these guys was when I had a new model 70 with a bad trigger pull and i mean bad, allison carey was the local rep for winchester warranty work so I took it in and asked if they could fix it they checked it and said it was within factory spec and would not be able to do anything under warranty but they suggested that for $40 they would polish the trigger mechanism so a couple weeks later since they were so busy when i showed up to pick up my gun they told me that they had to take the gun appart more than once to get the trigger right so the price ws now $70 I was not happy when i heard that the price had almost doubled without them talking to me but then i asked to see my gun and they said No!! not until you pay,,,Hows that for a way to treat you customers?
The next time i went was today i have shotgun trigger mechanism that i was cleaning after a hard season of duck hunting and got a little over zealous when shaking off the cleaning solvent and some thing flew off and was lost in the abiss of my garage. I went to allison carey again thinking it has to be better now right?
I asked the gentelman behind the counter if he could tell me what was missing and fully entended to hand it over for him to order parts and repair if he knew what was missing and a price.He told me after looking at it that he did not have a crystal ball and could not see through things so if i wanted to leave it for a minimum $45 they would look at it I was a little set back. I asked if he had a exploded view of the trigger assembly and he told me they are in business to make a living at gun repair and are not there for public information. i took the part and left and later that day talking to a friend he spoted what was missing and it was a part that was right on top and would have been obvious to a person that was in the gunsmithing business, i know he knew exactly what was wrong but would not tell me because he's in it for the money period and if your not paying he's not saying.
