I'm embarrassed to admit I thought I was responding in my thread about my sights being butchered.DOCTORPC said:ok ask if he can drill and tap a pistol frame for a scope mount and if he has done it before
Sorry you are wrong I know of two gun smiths on long island they both did some work for me .DOCTORPC said:A gunsmith is a person who repairs, modifies, designs, or builds firearms. This occupation is different from an armorer. The armorer primarily maintains (disassembly, cleaning) weapons and limited repairs involving parts replacement and possibly work involving accurization. A gunsmith does factory level repairs, renovation (such as applying metal finishes), and makes modifications and alterations for special uses. Gunsmiths may also apply carvings, engravings and other decorative features to an otherwise finished gun.
I am going to make this as clear as possible . above is the definition of a gunsmith Long Island does not have any and this is why i say this
i have several handguns that have been customized and i have always gone to the local smith first only to be turned away if it involved anything other than drop in replacement parts. Drill and tap? forget it, custom sight mount no thank you we don't do that i have been told I have always sent my guns to third party smiths or my preference the manuf of the gun for custom work.
I don't believe there is enough work out here to keep any custom smith working and i am sorry to have to say that
just my opinion
