    Default Looking for a gunsmith.

    I have a Ruger 96 in 44 Mag that I would like to get precision threaded for a silencer. Apparently the action wrench is impossible to find and I've tried a lot of places. That being said, I want it done professionally and accurately without marking up ANYTHING. I had a guy out in South Dakota say" Yep, I can do it, send it on out and we'll get it done".NOPE! 2 weeks later I got it back with an apology note saying he couldn't do it. Any suggestions please let me know.
    Thanks, Thom

    I looked at a picture of the Ruger 96 in 44 Mag. How is the front sight attached? If it's a dovetail mount, that may be an insurmountable problem. If it's a soldered ramp, or held with screws, it should be doable if you can live without the front sight.

    There are a lot of gunsmiths listed in Schuylkill county. Have you Googled? Here's one group:

    Not listed in the Skook on that link is Dave Keefer Gunsmith in Pine Grove.

    I'm not sure if he would be able to do it, or at least as high end of a job you might be looking for. (No experience with his gunsmithing skills)

    If you call pine grove guns, he has a gun smithing company up in Wilkes Barre area that does all of his gun smithing, and many other gun shops and dealers use this company as well, sorry I don't have anymore info on it!

    Rosco,
    We are gunsmiths in Montgomery county.
    These are the conditions of putting a silencer on you gun.
    We will need proof of your tax stamp for your silencer. Next, we make our own wrenches when needed.
    If you need further info id Be glad to help.

    I'd be interested in knowing why you would need to be looking at someone's federal tax documents as well.

    I was thinking the same thing. You don't need permission from the ATF to thread a barrel. If you get stuck finding someone, try Carper's Custon Gunsmith in Washington, PA.
