    I would like to have a bolt and carrier on a Model 12 jeweled. Who would I contact to do the job? Gunsmith? Engraver? Any ideas as to approximate cost?
    Aynbody have any experience having this done? Any help you can give will be appreciated.

    Thanks - Richard L.

    Richard- It is a very simple job that any gunsmith should be able to do. A small wooden dowel works much better than the rubber or wire tips that are commonly sold. If you have a drill press and some small pieces of scrap iron/steel, send me a PM.

    Chuckles has done a beautiful job and for the money not worth doing yourself. Years ago I did my Mdl 12, turned out very well and was interesting to do. I seemed to have more time then, that was before computers. LOL I suspect that Pat has done some in the past also from his comment. Good luck and have fun, Bob

    Try the eraser end of a standard #2 pencil with clover compound on a drill press. Works great.

    shot410ga - The reason I prefer a wood dowel and cutting compound is that the rubber eraser will bend a little making a crooked line and can actually get larger with a little pressure. This is the type of job where a person has to learn a technique that works best for him.
