All my work goes to Brad Bachelder and he does fine work. Whenever there was a question, he just redoes to what you want - no questions or BS. Sorry to hear of your problems. He does great wood work, Damascus barrels, and color case hardening.

Wow Tamid, that is too bad. I have had a few guns restored now and have had the work done within Canada. The first double I had restored was a damascus barrel Charles Smith boxlock.It required a lot of work from stock refinishing, checkering recut, barrels refinished, screws recolored/engraved, safety repaired, case coloring redone and it needed new firing pins made which were integral to the hammers. The gun turned out beautifully and at a cost far less than what would have been charged stateside. The woodwork was done by a forum member and before checkering he called to discuss the type of checkering this gun would have had and wanted to make sure that is what I wanted to go with. No guess work. Subsequent stocks I have sent to him have always involved a discussion once he had them in hand. Any issues encountered always end up with him contacting me before proceeding any further. Same with the fellow who does the metal work. To me this is the way it should be done to avoid possible disappointment with the end result.

Sounds like the splendid consultation, work and reasonable prices that a Canadian forum member has provided me, as well. We're such a picky bunch I can't see how business could be done another way.

Reminds me of the restock misery I suffered at the hands of Doug Mann who still owes me money....I guess his kid is still in college after all these years cuz he said he was tight on account of that. I sure hope his kid learned a trade other than gun stocking...

There is a reason the real good ones are backed up for a long long time. Everyone can make a mistake now and then, but a true craftsman won't send it out until its right. The good ones also know whats right and whats wrong.

The checkering and stock finish is so bad I have to wonder if he sent it out to be done or used an apprentice. Could this be possible?
