  1. I am a 97 gunsmith. It is the only gun I sell or work on. I get calls and emails regarding my sales and services. Point One: After some discussion with my potential customer I instruct them to go to the SASS wire and check my references. Some do and some probably do not. This forum is a good starting place to determine with who to send, purchase, barter, or whatever. Recommendations can be sent to person asking by P.M. or by not "piling on" on the forum request. Unfavorable recommendations can and should be made by P.M. Point Two: For service work the question is usually how long before I get it back. The answer is difficult. I look at my repair rack and see the 97's there, maybe there are 6 of them and I estimate 2-5 days on each. When wood is refinished it goes to the 5th day easy. So I am looking at 12-30 days. I tell the customer if your gun arrived today it would be about 30 to 40 days before I can get to it. I also tell them that when the gun arrives it goes to the back of the rack and will be worked on in the order it was received. Sometimes I can get lucky and some of those 6 guns are not as time consuming to repair as estimated and I can get to the next gun(s) earlier than estimated. On the other hand some of those guns take longer and I have to notify my customer of the delay. As said in the above replies, communication is key. Point Three: Regardless of what it takes, and sometimes at a loss of revenue on my end, I will protect my reputation as a gunsmith and member of the CAS family. I don't mean to sound like a prima dona but this method of dealing with my customers is a simple straight forward way to do business. It has served me well for 20 years and has kept me in the good graces with the CAS members, and hope it does for another 20. Hmm I guess that's dreaming.
  2. owned and shot them all. the original Colt lightning in my opinion is the best. had two 32-20's set up for CAS and while I only shoot mine once and awhile, because it is a 26" oct barrel, my wife shoots hers carbine full time. It works fine and the Colt holds up well. 5 years and not problems.
  3. Sent you a p.m. but not sure it went thru. Please advise if you received it. Thanks, OG
  4. I think the special run 5.5" barrels only came in blue.
  5. solid frame or take down? I can help with take down.
  6. Send me your email address and I will send you some pics.
  7. I am pretty sure I have one that you can have for the cost of shipping. Send me an email to outlawgambler@gmail.com with your address and I will ship it with an invoice for the shipping cost.
  8. Just curious since I have never been to Winter Range, how does the approximately 800 shooters for this year's Winter Range compare to EOT?
  9. MTJ, got the email with your info. Funds and FFL will go out either today or tomorrow. Thanks, OG
  10. MTJ, I have been replying to your messages but it appears you are not receiving my reply. I need your name and address so I can send funds and FFL to you. You can send it to my email at outlawgambler@gmail.com or send it via the SASS message system, but email is better. OG
