    I have a model 32 that need a lot of attention. Blue, ejector rods, tighten and so on. No wood work needed. Would you send it to Krieghoff, Dupont or another smith?

    Where to send?

    Barrelbulge - one ejector does not lift. It looks like the ejector is worn on the end where it goes to the forearm. That is most of it. I have not checked the head space but the barrel to receiver is snug when breached.

    This is a very old unit with leaf trigger springs. The wood is in good condition for the age. The blue is dull but looks original.

    It is a good shooter and i would like to revive it. I don't shoot much - 4 to 8 rounds some weeks. Most weeks only 2 or 3 rounds.

    Slow, I'd call Doug Braker, the Gun Doctor. What you have described is pretty straightforward cleaning and pressing, and Doug is a one-stop shop, plus his turn around is better than almost anybody.

    I have sent Ernest Marlette ALL of my work. Never a complaint. Honest and easy to work with. He is in NC and an authorized Krieghoff shop.

    Earnest Marlette reblued a 32 San Remo several years ago for me, one of the deepest, rich bluing I have seen.

    I agree with johnboy, Ernest Marlette, He did a Super Crown for me 3 years ago and the finish is still dark, rich and deep. He is a nice guy to deal with and will tell it to you straight and his fee was very reasonable

    I don't care where you send your gun. Ernest Marlette is wonderful. I send my K guns to Ottsville. Again, I don't care where you send your gun.
