I have seen several Pahkas that were sleeved by Briley that I was very impressed with the quality of workmanship. Better than I would have expected, somehow. Cost, around $1000, according to the owner.

As we are humans and are curious folks, here's your answer. I have a line on a high grade W.R. Droplock, 12b. The action and wood are excellent, but the bbls are shot (pardon the pun).

Just in the thinking stage.

All the best!

Dewey Vicknair. Look at his site. He does a TIG'd sleeve and there is no solder joint.

Be careful! Next thing you will know, you will have a closet full of cripples like me.

Stan,Kirk Merrington probably did the sleeving at Briley since he worked there before setting up his own shop. I do not think they have a quality workman there to do this now.

Greg,
Prices seem to be running in the $1500-2000 range with blueing.

There's an old English smith up in the Ontario Canada area that quoted me about $900 U.S. dollars about 7-8 yrs ago. His website is http://www.precisionarms.ca/Images/WebPages/GGSWhole.htm

I don't know what he charges now nor how hard it is to get a gun into Canada and back out. Canada did repeal some laws governing long guns recently. Possibly it's easier now.
