Spent the day with him yesterday, mostly in the shop.

He performed an amputation on my 16 gauge Swedish Hammer gun to make it into a coach gun that any stagecoach shotgun rider would be proud of.

Gonna be my "fun-gun" with brass shotshells & black powder (naturally).

Was a good off-season day!

Dawg,

 

I am changing the 1860 Armys 8" barrels I bought from you 3+'years ago and Rowdy Yates did the full work on 'em.

 

I installed the Birdshead grips I bought from you recently. Perfect fit, thank you again.

 

Bought 4 7/8" 1851 Navy barrels. Sending the barrels and frames to Colorado Coffinmaker for his magic fitting the barrels to the frames.

 

The term "Kit Guns" comes to mind.

 

See ya'

As a new guy I am kinda curious about Rowdy Yates and Coffin Maker? What kind of work do they do? Thanks

Both are semi-retired

I do not know how much work either is accepting

Rowdy works out of Lee's Gunsmithing in Orange, CA

http://leesgunsmithing.com/

He does action work on cap guns

I don't know if he still does cap guards or not.

Cap guards are a replacement piece in the recoil shield, with a slot in it that prevents a spent cap from falling into the action.

Contact Coffinmaker here: http://www.sassnet.com/forums/index.php?showuser=12567

I don't know what, if any work he is accepting.
