    Allem's Gun Craft, Zionsville in PA.(215-679-9016 ) I believe they are "K" gun deals. My friend just got his K-32 back from being re-nickled. It's like brand new. He is very happy with the work....Good luck

    Ernest is the guy. I was in NC over christmas and called him the day after and he took care of me right then, without an appointment. Good work, very fair, and quick. He is my guy from now on.

    I recommend Ulm. I sent a K80 receiver back for refinishing a few years ago. The folks in Ottville told me 3-4 months and I had it back in 3 1/2 months. Not only was it refinished like new, but it had been completely rebuilt - as new from the assmebly line. Price then was $400.00, a bargain IMO.
    Do it in your off season.

    Marlette is the best there is.I will bet turn around time is closer to 2 or 3 weeks.He can put the finish that you request on them.I know for a fact that other gunsmiths use him for certain things.Look at some of the advertisements on used Krieghoffs.A lot of times people will use his name in the ad to help sell the gun.I know why.He goes thru them and gets all those little parts workin slick with each other.He has rebuild some guns for me that started out as ....dogs.When I got them back, they looked better than new.Yeah,his correct number is 336-456-1818.
