For shooters in or near Northern Illinois, I am wondering if anyone here knows of or has experience with the following gunsmith:

A.W. Smiths & Sons,
4N221 84 Court,
Hanover Park, IL

I came across one of their business cards and they are near my house.

PM me or email me if you wish. Remove the Xs from the email address above.

Thanks

i don't know about A.W. Smiths & Sons, but I have used Dave Norin in Waukegan. He used to work through Smoke & Guns in Waukegan. If you are interested, I would talk to him. I found his work outstanding.

Gene:

What is it you're looking to have done?!

AW Smith... as I understand it is gone. Two brothers split, not sure the present situation.

Gun Doctor in Roselle on Lake Street... have done a few things for me and my guys at Naperville... good work, fair price, not the fastest turn around...

follow back,

Jay:
Not looking for anything specific right now. Just wondering about Smiths and also that it's good to have a good 'smith in mind for things down the road.
I used to use Tom Mason and Mike Harmon in Downers Grove. Tom moved to Kansas and Mike moved north. He was in Fox Lake, but now is in Antioch. He's a good guy but it's getting to be kind of far to drive for me if I need something done.
