    Doug Braker. The "Gun Doctor". His work is very personal and he has a huge following on TS.com. He does all that stuff, reasonabley and quickly. Your trigger will be as you choose when you ask him to tune it.

    Just got my m.x.8 back from being rebuilt and reblued. All I can say is wow what a good job Doug done. Bluing is great and the barrels are tight and the locks are like new. No dought it's good for another hundred thousand. I wouldent hesitate to recomend the gun doctor for any gun work

    ---------------------------------

    If you're having a problem, or had one, I'd sure like to know about it. I warranty everything I do for one year, this even includes the failure of a factory part. The warranty also includes the round trip shipping. Note-The warranty does not cover rework done by others during this one year period. I want to see for myself why something failed.

    I would highly recommend Ed Haley out of WA. He does incredible work and very reasonably priced. I live in FL and send all my stuff to him; coast to coast. His number 541-314-5369.

    doberman37 the doc called you out. If your going to bad mouth someones work atleast say what was wrong. Sounds like the doc backs his work.

    If you wanted to work on a Ljutic (it does happen) you could send it to "Al, the shooter's pal" and have the factory personnel fix any problem. Works for me.
