    I had work done on two shotgun barrels. I dropped them off toward the end of the week. Gunsmith said they should be done the following week. No call, so I wait another week. In week 3 I call and he says they will be done tomorrow and he will call me. No call, so another week goes by. Now, week 4, I call and he again says they will be done tomorrow and I can come pick them up. I said just call me when they are actually finished. Next day I get a call saying they are done. I picked up with no issues and was charged the quoted price. Neutral first encounter and I would probably go back.

    Been dealing with JC for the past few months now, mostly on basic stuff that I wasn't confident enough to tackle myself. He did a DAO to DA/SA conversion on my P229. That was great. He was finished with it in less than a week, over the Christmas holidays.

    Upon picking up my Sig, I left him my Springfield XDM to install a set of TruGlo sites. Almost a month and a half later, it still isn't done. Now I know doing sights on the XDs can be a bit of a bitch, but not that long. I have been trying to contact him over the past two weeks to get an update (last one was 3 weeks ago, when he said that he was waiting for a new sight pusher from Brownells) and the only response I got from him was when I asked for prices for two hand guns.

    I like JC, and understand if he is busy, but I would like an update on what should have been a relatively quick job. This may be the last time I have any work done by him. I will use him to buy firearms, since he does get great prices, but the time he takes to get stuff done is a little excessive.

    All that being said, if you can wait, his work is top notch.
    When in doubt, knifehand!

    I can understand your frustration on slower turnover time regarding gunsmith work. If the gentleman you went to is truly a competent full service smith, he will no doubt be working on several guns at the same time for he is a rare breed. After many years of dealing with gun work via gunsmiths, I can tell you when such craftsmen tell you that will get right on it and it will be done in a certain amount of time......don't believe them. They tell all their customers the same thing. When my smith tells me about would be turnover time, it borders on being a standing joke. But your right, you will probably go back because there is not too many other games in town.

    I am finding out that he is not really concerned about getting new business. This is a part time job for him and he doesn't call you back when you leave a message for him. Or is not in any hurry to get anything done.
    He might get back to you a few days later, but no guarantees on that.
    Nice guy to talk to, or buy a gun from, but I'm not going to give him any more projects.
