Smiths out here are worthless, i had trouble finding a smith who would re-tap 2 holes for a scope mount, and when ive taken this gun to the smiths they ALL look at it like its from mars, tell me its too old and i should check numrich.... other than that they are no help..
I will check out those sites... thanks eric!
