    Just got back from Sparta and went to Kolar to have some things done and I can tell you their service is top notch and they are really friendly.

    I recently upgraded my trap gun inventory with a Kolar TC. I really like the gun and it seems to be rock solid but I am wondering about the types of 'service' this gun may require.

    Waht do you longer time Kolar owners do for annual service/inspection?

    Every interaction I have with the folks at Kolar has been positive. I just wish Jeff could find a way to get 30 hours out of a 24 hour day.

    There really is no annual service. The main thing is to keep the gun lubricated at the wear points and clean and lubricate the trigger periodically. You also need to drop the hammer and make sure the top lever is in a neutral position. Bill Malcolm

    Took my Kolar in today and asked Ron to do an annual checkup. After he told me I must have the O/U barrel for an annual, he put the gun together and checked it. After a few minutes he handed it back to me and said the gun didn't need a thing. We shook hands and I left. Nice, honest people.

    PS I purposely left the O/U barrel at home. Just one more thing to pack and I have no plans to shoot it.

    Gene. The reason they need the O/U is to time the ejectors and trigger cocking timing. They never do a halfa-- job. Wouldn't you agree though that Ron is really mean. He was here at the house Sat. and was drinking way to much whiskey and braking funiture and stuff. If you get a chance stop by and tell him I am talking about him on the web. He should get a chuckle out of it. Also tell him to keep Keith sobber to work on my trigger Sun. PM.

    I had a issue with my TS where the trigger pull got to light.
    (About 2 lbs.) I stopped in at Kolar and Keith took a look at
    it. Somehow the sear spring had gotten bent. He replaced the spring,
    checked the whole gun over and didn't charge me a penny. I wasn't
    even the original purchaser of the gun. Their customer care is the best.

    Yea, that Ron fellow is real mean. He even had the nerve to ask me how many shells I had put through the gun since the last service. And, when I said I just bought the gun here at the Grand from Jeff a year ago, he said "So?" Oh, the nerve........

    I'll go by there tomorrow and tell him to get his act together. <:)

    Went to Kolar today (Sunday) and told Ron what you said. He said "Thanks for the message, but I already took care of Ron." I can only assume you got what you deserved. <:)

    I have never had service done on my Kolar. So far it just does not break down. I did just take my 90T by Kolar at the Grand for a broken trigger. Ron and Keith not only fixed the problem but did it in record time. Great bunch of talented smiths,nice guys too. Terry

    The one item that I neglected was the firing pin holes. I clean my gun religiously but never did the firing pin holes. They carboned up so much that the gun would not fire all of the time. I had to use a drill bit, by hand, to remove it. It would buffer the firing pin enough to have some misfires. Works great now!

    any gun will need maintenance. springs lose their tension.
