Have a barreled mauser action that I have had stowed away for sometime and am looking for a gunsmith to do a modified blue print of the action. Mainly, square up the receiver face and the new barrel shoulderl. I can true up the action and lap the lugs. I would do it myself but I no longer have access to a lathe. I've searched locally and have struck out. Anyone know of a smith who would do the work? Thanks! RB

Mike McCabe was recommended to me to rebarrel an FN, but I found a local that did good work. Dietrich Gunsmithy in Otis.
McCabe is in Co

This guy is in Greenwood, SC, reputed to do quality work, but I have no direct experience.

I've known Mike for years, and he's top notch. I wouldn't hesitate to have him do work. That being said, facing the receiver and barrel shoulder is a pretty straight forward gig. Shouldn't be an issue for a local smith.

Try Myers Arms in Ohio. He is a member here, FAL GRUNT.

Mike McCabe mentored me along while I was in college and taught me most of what I know about gunsmithing and Mausers. Great guy; I can't say enough good about him.

Thanks Folks, I thought the same thing so when I started asking around I was surprised that no one locally would or could do the work. I just found a gunsmith about 30 minutes from me that might be able to do the work. If he can't then I'll contact these folks...

Just a thought, but all those local guys I've ever tried to use made me wish I had just sent the piece involved to someone with a national reputation, which often happened anyway after they got through with the item, often with the added expense of not only paying them to work on it, but also of paying the expert to undo what they did.
