    Gunsmith price in the ozarks

    every now and then someone asks me where to get a gun repair or blue done and how much I think they would charge for the job. I recommend Goodsteel for the blueing but I myself got to wandering what is going price for simple gun repairs. There is a fellow local but I would not trust him but he needs a wage also and I don't ever plan on using him myself. What are smith prices nowadays?

    Being an independent small business, gunsmiths set their own rates, usually depending upon their experiences/costs - and no two are usually the same.

    Ergo, only someone who patronizes a local gunsmith wherever would have a small idea of that gunsmith's rate(s).

    Brownell's has surveyed their customers & gunsmiths, to come up with a general guide that can be taken into consideration when looking at gunsmith fees:

    Experience is a wonderful thing - It lets you recognize a mistake, when you make it again.

    I too recommend Malcolm Ballistic Tool (Tim Malcolm AKA Goodsteel ) for all things Gunsmithy. As far as Bluing, I had a Model 12 completely redone and the job cost a mere $100 and was a beautiful deep blue (not done by Goodsteel); done locally.
