Please don't hesitate to call or e-mail me for estimates on a particular job. If you can send photos it will help me be a little more precise.



Payment types:
I accept Cashier’s check, money order, Visa or MC. At this time I do not accept PayPal. If you are in the NW Nevada area and can pick up your firearm in person, I also accept cash.

Turn Around Time:
I try to get most jobs finished and returned within two weeks. That being said, depending on the amount of work on the bench, time to get in parts and the complexity of the job, it may take a little or a lot longer. I do greatly appreciate your patience.

Northern Nevada / California customers:
Due to higher ammo costs and variable availability, a repair may cost more or take longer. If you can provide the ammo for test firing, sighting-in, etc. you will save both money and time as I won't have to bill current retail prices and / or wait for odd caliber ammo.
This, of course, only applies to customers who can drop their firearm off at one of my pick up locations as there are too many restrictions on shipping ammo.
