    We have this Ferlach rifle (270 win) with gorgeous wood, that needs repair. The stock has a crack & needs to be repaired & refinished. Also some metal work needs refinish, etc.... Who does complete restoration of these great older guns?????Thanks.....Pete

    I used these guys once for fixing the stock on an AE grade Fox. The work was good - communication on progress and original estimate of time to complete not so good. They said 3-4 months when I sent it to them - it was right at 12 months. They got mad at me for nagging - I sent them an email about every other month asking for an update. No snotty language - just inquiring as to status and expected completion. To be fair, I believe the owner was undergoing some health issues at the time - I'd have been fine with it if they had just said so as I wasn't in a big hurry.

    I used Turnbull on a Colt SAA I had, came back better and prettier than new.
    You get what you pay for. I'd use them again.
