Hello fellow forum members. I just picked up a Winchester 94 lever gun in 30-30. I think it was made in late '70's early '80's. I would like to find a smith that could work over the trigger/action, put different sites on it and maybe a large loop lever on it. Can anyone give me any ideas or suggestions as who to have this work done by. I have done the "Google" search but only came up with restoration smiths.
Thank You,
Skip

Skip, I know there are shops out there that specialize in that kind of thing-- sorry to say I can't think of the names of any of them. I think one's in Alaska maybe....?

I live pretty close to Turnbull Restorations here in NY. I am pretty sure they can handle your needs. Check out their website. Doug , Keith, Todd and the whole bunch are a great group of people.

The Alaska shop is Wild West Guns, I believe.

Try Dave Clements
http://www.clementscustomguns.com

He has worked on a couple of rifles for me and he does good work.

Also check out Paco Kelly's www.leverguns.com there are folks there that could help. This site also lists lever gun gunsmiths. I would avoid Regan Nonneman like the proverbial plague if you ever want to see you're guns again.
