gunsmith?

I have a gun that needs some work. Can anyone reccommend a gunsmith? I live in the Lancaster area and want someone in the central PA area. Thanks

Re: gunsmith?

Depending on what part of lancaster. outside of manheim on 72 is Wolf sporting goods, hes a good gunsmith. He does all my work, i took him sporting rifles, and tactical and other semi rifles.

Should I shoot? I don't care, im not the one holding the gun, if it was me, we'd be skinning by now.

There is one on Rt. 41 at Gap. I think its Village Arms; check your phone book.

Re: gunsmith?

The sportsmans shop in New Holland has a decent gun smith and so does Village Arms in Gap.




When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: gunsmith?

Gene at The Village Arms is a great gunsmith ( was the sportsmans shop gunsmith for years). The gunsmith at Trop gun shop is also excellent. I wouldn't recomend Hammonds in red lion. he might be an excellant benchrest shooter and a decent gunsmith but he has an ego to boot his hunting camp was next to ours for years and he always treated everyone there as if they were beneath him.

the thrill is not in the kill, but in the experience
