    I need to find someone that can raise a dent in a SXS 20 ga. Ithaca barrel. The dent(s) are about 10 inches from the muzzle and in the left tube. Looks like a car door was the culprit. I'm in the Detroit, MI area but could mail the barrels if I had to. OK quit laughing it's not my gun, it belongs to my good friend and dentist.

    I posted a thread some time ago at SGW about dent reforming, and the pictures there tell the story of a couple of decent dents being reduced, removed, polished, and a choke installed in the barrel near the old dent locations, now invisible inside.

    Some other evidence of dent removal; hope you like the inside pictures.
