I can heartily recommend this feller. He's actually closer to my place, than Carlisle, but it's a Carlisle PO address.

No personal experience with him on shotguns, but he's built a great rep for custom rifle work and repairs?

Re: Harrisburg Area Gunsmith

I can wholeheartedly vouch for Chad Mccauslin, he has done everything for me, my family, and friends. He has created a custom rifle for me, as well as doing any repair work I have taken to him.

Re: Harrisburg Area Gunsmith

I took a barrel to Chad for chambering yesterday, and his counter was so loaded with long guns, that he had no place to sit my barrel or action. Yet he is able to get most work out in a few weeks. I have no experience with him on anything but target rifles. But I saw some shotguns laying there.
