Did an outstanding job putting front and rear sights on a tactical Remington shotgun.Everyone I dealt with was professional and courteous.As others have pointed out, if you want someone to hold your hand and smile at you, head north to LL Bean.

for quality gunsmithing. I've brought a wide variety of routine and challenging projects to Sandy and Robert over the past two decades. I've sometimes had to wait for them to get to my jobs, but the result has always been well worth the wait. As others have noted, if you want a hug, call Dr. Phil. If you want your weapon in the best possible hands, and a solid gold result, this is the place.

If you want someone to hold your hand and make you feel good, join a support group. If you want top quality gunsmithing, this is the place to go. I have known Sandy, Nancy, and Robert since the 1980s. Sandy and Robert are the most talented gunsmiths around; they have just about every credential imaginable and have even taught the experts. I have won five national championships with guns they built and though I am now on a national Service shooting team, I won't let anyone else touch my guns, even the military shooting team pistolsmiths. In fact, a US Army Shooting Team armorer inspecting my NVGW pistol for the President's Pistol Match at Camp Perry remarked he had never seen a trigger as good as the one Robert put on my .45. Convinced it wouldn't pick up the weight, he tried it, and it did! Sandy and Robert are meticulous perfectionists. Brilliant gunsmiths with unmatched credentials. You get what you pay for. If you need something done that involves firearms metal or wood work, these guys can do it better than anyone else. If you want a hug, call Dr. Phil.

Customer service? HA! Not if you don't happen to please the taste of the management. Years ago, when Sandy Garrett ran the place, I had excellent work done on a Hi-Power. Today, new management is aggressively offensive and rude. When I phoned to ask about a trigger job, their main concern was demonstrating that they knew my weapon better than I. Okay, they're the experts. When I made the mistake of saying, "Oh. I didn't know that," the response was, "Well I do and I'm telling you that..." When I then asked if he could recommend someone who would do the trigger job for me, he replied that I should check the internet. This kid is arrogant, curt, and gratuitously rude. I have no doubt that he's an excellent gunsmith but I'd rather drive to North Carolina to have my guns worked on than talk to this jerk again.

I gave them an out of the box Para 45 and they turned it into a serious IPSEC competion gun. Great price and the workmanship was amazing.

I had antique gun project that turned out to be beyond my expertise. I got a referral to Northern Va. Gun Works. If I couldn??t assemble it within three weeks, I had little expectation that anyone else could. Days later I got a phone call saying the piece was ready for pickup. Sure enough it was fully assembled, good to go another 107 years. And, I felt the price was very fair. I had to pinch myself. I??d tried everything. As it turns out, I found another project that involved substantially more. I knew Sandy Garrett did impressive work, but again I was bowled over by his craftsmanship. No. Va. Gun Works has far exceeded my expectations. I??m looking forward to my next project. Craftsman: a person who is skilled at his craft ?? an artist.

Had a performance package done on my new Para 45, new sights, trigger, slide and ramp. Outstanding job and turned my Para into a tack driver...and it never jams. Job well done!

Sandy Garrett's work is impeccable! He's worked on many of my guns and I would not think for a second of taking them to anyone else. Workmanship is flawless! He restored and reblued a shotgun I bought in high school and carried all over the world to better than new condition. His bluing is far better than a brand new gun today!! He has my highest recommendation!!

Sandy Garrett has worked on several of my firearms and he is one of the most competent gunsmiths on the East Coast. I would not hesitate to take any firearm to him for repair or modifications.

Sandy, the gunsmith, is the rudest person I have ever met. He might be great at his job I will never know. I dropped off a rifle to get cleaned and after two months I called him to ask where we were. He said three months minimum and hung
