Default A Meticulous Gunsmith

I just received a gun back from Dave Fjelline that he received Tuesday the 6th of July.
Aside from far exceeding my expectations in all areas of what I had asked him to do… he even marked the box BEFORE he removed the lid so he’d know exactly how it needed to go back together.

I make my own boxes in the AHS style for shipping guns and barrels. This one had the back half of a hammer gun.
