When you drop off your firearm, bring government issued ID. The initial inspection is free of charge. We will call you with the results. At this stage, the gunsmith may return your item, and no financial commitment on your part is required.

Cost depends on condition of the gun, availability of parts, and other factors. If deeper inspection reveals hidden problems, the initial estimate may be revised upward. “Bargain” guns paradoxically often cost a lot to fix, because less durable materials and inferior construction require extra time and materials.

You may wish to pay for a deeper inspection for $65. You will receive a repair/rehabilitation/refinishing estimate. We will outline what we believe needs to be done, which materials need to be ordered, and a rough timeline. That estimate is subject to change after work begins.
