    I guess this is kind of shooting related. I didn't make it to the Grand this year although I wanted to get over there to have a barrel fitted to my K80. As a general rule historically, have there been any gunsmiths at the Cardinal Classi that are "qualified" to do this kind of work ? I realize this is somewhat of a broad question - the barrel I have will go on the receiver but the forearm will not latch closed. To be specific, I have an existing 32" barrel and want to have a 30" barrel fit to the receiver so that both are "mated."

    Thanks in advance

    I dont think Phillip is going to be at the Cardinal....But Kreighoff has a storefront. I think they will have a smith there.

    Phillips won't be there and Krieghoff likely won't have a gunsmith along unless you're counting Braxton!!

    Need to ask a large favor. For those at the Cardinal center tomorrow who may run across any Krieghoff mechanic on purpose or by accident. As I mentioned in my thread above, I need a barrel fit to my K-80. Would like to ask for the phone number of anyone there so qualified so I can give them a call to arrange to have the work done before I make the drive over from Indiana on Saturday. I would need to have the work done that same day while I waited and then driving back home that evening.

    Thanks in advance

    would like to move this to the top to sse if someone might be able to help me out with this. It's about a 3 1/2 hour drive - which I would hate to make if I can't get something done the same day. Assuming there are qualified folks there, I don't just to show up insisting on "same day" service without at least letting them know to block out a little time.

    Thanks in advance.
