    Dog Braker

    Below are a couple of snaps of my Mono Gun that Doug Braker did his magic on for me. I couldn't be more pleased with the work, the timeliness of delivery and overall ease of dealings.

    Very nice shootin' iron! I could see where a man would be mighty proud to walk up to the line with that in their hands.

    TL. likely the bbl is "black Teflon". The receiver could be "silver Teflon" or nickel. Looks like Doug did a couple of items (trigger-push button-trigger pin) in gold nitride.

    But I agree the work that come out of his shop is top flyte

    Thanks for the comments. Doug (his plating contractor) nickel plated the receiver and fore end iron. Doug had the trigger, release button (inertia lock), trigger housing retainer pin and the fore end latch release button with plated with titanium nitride (TiN gold).

    I postponed having the barrel blued or teflon coated just yet as my major issue was receiver bluing wear. This is a 1976 model gun and it had some bluing wear and freckles on the bottom of the receiver and fore end iron. I had fired another 8K rounds since I bought it and I could tell how much bluing I had worn from the trigger and the area just above the trigger, so I wanted something with better wear properties. The bling was a bonus.

    Doug is one of the best anywhere! He did a Model 12 for me 20 years ago. I still get comments on it.

    Cooter,

    Go to:

    http://dougsgunsmithshop.com/

    He lists his services and prices on line. Obviously, he does good work, but also, amazingly for a gunsmith, the work was done in EXACTLY the time period he stated. None of that, "It should be done by next month," crap I get from most.

    I really missed my Ljutic whilst it was gone, but it returned just as promised timewise and I am certainly pleased with the results. Unfortunately, I don't seem to shoot any better with it????!!!

    Dog does good work for what I've seen of it. I have a question, does anyone know if he does the nickel and other plating in his shop or jobs it out to a plating shop?

    It only took 17 posts for me to notice I left the U out of Doug's name in the Thread Title.

    Mea culpa and apologies to Doug.

    I thought you were talking about Dog Braker, Dougs cousin who is a gunsmith and part time bounty hunter.
