Very old school , I have found from talking with my FIL who is 80 and a master furniture builder and carpenter that no matter how good they are , you have to be precise and exact in what your wants and expectations are if you are paying someone to do a job. Here is a silly example, If you hire McFly to come in and put a extra outlet in your kitchen and just say I want it here and have no further discussion than how can you complain about the results? He may put the electric box in but run the wire going to it along the floor molding rather than behind the sheet rock as it should be. So hire the gun smith but don't let the rifle or pistol out of your grip until the complete job is explained how you want it and its agreed that he /she can do it as contracted to do so.

* This does not mean people still make mistakes big time, but take the time put it in writing what you want, old saying if it wasn't written .....it wasn't said.

Don't drag me into this.

If you tell me you want an outlet "here", I'll look at it and tell you if it's possible and your options. And no, I don't weld

Is Bobby Guinta still around?
He used to call PPC lines at Tee Dee Range years ago when Virgil was their gunsmith.
