Yet he still sends a lot of work out to CNC shops because they can make a profit and still do it cheaper than he can. It must work pretty well for him. Right now his telephone message states he is two months behind. He has hired a journeyman gunsmith to help him keep up with demand.

He is getting old and he is just doing the work because he loves it. He could retire and hang out at the range of his choice until he passes on. He is a retired tool and die maker from Colt.
Wow ur lucky to have work done by him
