    I have started collecting vintage american (early 1900) single barrel trap shotguns. One of the issues with these guns are often throw levers left of center and/or slightly loose locking blocks. I am having a difficult time of finding a gunsmith service that will work and repair these older guns. Does anyone have a recommendation?

    Any good tool and die shop can weld up the worn areas with TIG and regrind to establish the off center lock just like new.
