    I just happened to be in the kolar building when he was getting fitted for it. Nice young man and wish him well with it. It is a dandy gun.

    after watching the pratice traps where the tryguns were shot-- the gentleman on the right who was from kolar- has got to be one of the hardest working gun guys around!! he followed the customers out to the field and really made sure the gun shot, for whoever was trying it!!!!

    Congratulations!


    Who are you? Are you in the picture? A brief note telling those of us who are not in the KNOW, might help. Also a picture of the gun would be great.

    Keith Sprangers is Vice President and Chief Engineer for Kolar, he is the far left. Jeff Mainland is the owner he is far right. They were both so helpful. They took a lot of time out, (and they were very busy) in order to show me how to adjust the gun and care for it properly. They assured me that they would be there if I have any questions. I am the one holding the gun, the man to my left, also works with Kolar and was a nice man, too. I don't want to get his name wrong, but will double check and let you know his name.

    It is taking some getting use to because ive never shot a high rib gun. I think it will take maybe 200 shells or so get get the feel for it as expected when getting a new gun. Keith at Kolar set my gun up for me in the shop aside from minor ajustments he got it perfect.

    I added the names to the picture based on info in this thread - If these names are wrong please tell me and I will correct them.
    In my experience - Kolar folks are great folks.

    That is great! How did you do that? I have learned that Ron's last name is actually spelled "Dondlinger". Other than that, it is perfect! Thanks!
