View Full Version : Shout Out for Will's Gunsmithing, Corona

Just got my Colt Defender back from Will. Like many Defenders, it was sending brass back at my forehead, to the point that it wasn't fun to shoot. Will changed the extractor and took it to the range for a test fire. When he found that it was still sending some brass backwards, he milled the ejection port just a tad and it fixed the problem (and he didn't charge me for the milling!)

He specializes in 1911's and Smith revolvers. He works out of his garage in Corona. PM me if you want his number.

+1 for Will.

He's a very talented gunsmith and an all around good guy. He rebuilt my Para P14 from the ground up with all the custom touches and I could not be happier.

Does he machine cylinders to accept moon clips? I have a 686 P and a model 442 I'm seriously considering modifying for moon clips. Be nice to get it done locally.

Haven't had any work done by him yet but my gun club buds have and I've seen and shot guns he's built. First rate stuff.

Will is great!!!
I had a SA 1911 that had been through several gun butchers until I found out about Will. He was able to get that gun running 100% of the time.
