If you demand a new rifle and cause a scene, make sure someone gets that on video.

Lol nah

No need for either one

I've bought 5 guns from this guy

If he won't fix a mistake from one of his employees ... I just won't come back

He might not miss it immediately since he's so busy

But once the fever subsides... Ill still remember

I learned long ago that not many "gunsmiths", are.I have had more trouble with them than not. Now, the owner of my current go to LGS is not a gunsmith, however, he is a woodworker, like me, and I have seen some of his work, and talked to him about a lot of stuff. I know he is at least as anal as I am, so I have no issues about handing him my stuff, and knowing I will get it back pristine-like. I actually do not know where I'd take a gun for some involved gunsmithing.......

I put a scratch on my beautiful Mark II and I fretted about it for days. I'm over it now.

A bottle of cold blue should be included in the box with every AR armorers tool and/or stock wrench sold.

Slight difference between a castle nut and a vehicle. But I digress...

Level headed conversation with the owner about the crappy response from his guy and all will be handled one way or the other. You will either get satisfaction or you will see if the owner is not worthy of your business. I think over something as small as a scratched castle nut, the owner would want to make it right to keep you happy and coming back.

Big picture - Sure it is BS that the kid didn't take responsibility for his actions but unless your rifle is a safe queen, not the end of the world. It just has "character" now.

My hope for you is that you'll go out and use that bad boy so much that that little scratch will be the smallest one on the whole damn gun!

Well,that's no fun?

In the past I'd prolly made a huge stink about it.......now,would just go see the owner and let him inspect the damage,one of his guy's did.Who know's,it might bring some needed instruction or sumthin to the shop?Or possibly some insight so that this,"never happens again".

Each owner/businessman is going to approach this,sooner or later.....like scratches,"*it happens.Now is when you'll see the true character of the shop,and whether they get your biz in the future.May be a cheap lesson?

Omg!!!!!

you scratched it!!!!!!


anyway, i dont let anyone touch my guns with a tool of any sort. If i cant fix something it goes back to the manufacturer. I learned my lessen when i let a supposed gunsmith put a scope mount on my prized winchester model 70 african express. Stripped out a screw hole and just locktited it. Of course it came loose under recoil and couldnt figure out why it wouldnt zero.

I dont care if it is putting a qd sling on a gun no "gunsmith" gets to touch it even if i gotta spend extra for a one time tool use.

I feel the pain of having one of a bubbasmith that most lgs hire screw up a gun.
