    Good advice above.

    Do NOT use CraftyGuard in Des Moines IA. They ruined a brand new Perazzi MX14 of mine that took Giacomo another $500 to try and fix what the ruined.

    Doug Braker is good. He's an ex-Kolar fella working for them in WI. He's in MN now and does great work.

    Ok I no this is an old post. Does Doug have a way to contact him or a place of business I can look up?

    Another vote for Doug Braker. He uses the same company for his nickel plating that Kolar uses.
