Yes, I possess a Type 01 FFL. I am licensed to perform gunsmithing on complete firearms and receivers. You can send your firearm directly to me, and I can ship it back, directly to your home address. I can also transfer firearms to residents of Illinois and contiguous states. NFA firearms are also accepted for repair (with your approved ATF Form 5).
No, parkerizing is not like painting. Different metals take the colors differently. Temperature, time and chemicals all have an effect on the final product. I will finish your part in a color consistent with what would commonly be found on a GI part.
No, I am not set up for engraving.
When you send parts to be worked on, include the full payment.
Cash, check or money order.

Monday through Friday, 8:00 am central time to 5:00 pm central time are my hours, but if necessary, you can call on the weekend, and as late as 9:00 pm on weekdays. I don't always hear the phone, so please try back if there is no answer.
I do custom lathe and mill work on request. If what you need done is beyond my capabilities, I won't hesitate to let you know.
Under ordinary circumstances, I have parts done in 10 business days or less. Obviously, if you have a particularly large order, or are having some special work done, it will take some extra time.
Yes, I can help you out with most firearms related projects.
I receive a large number of emails every week and multiple parts arrive at my shop every day. It is very important that you include a detailed note outlining all the work you want done. Also, please remember to include your shipping address.
