Well since the gunsmithing/how to forum doesn't get much traffic I am cross posting here.

I have a Mosin M38 I'm bubba'ing, and the next step is barrel/action work.

I want the barrel shortened to the minimum legal length, recrowned and threaded to mount a standard .30 cal muzzle device.

The action is rough and I'd like it smoothed out, the bolt needs polished and the trigger needs work.

I'm located in Sonoma county - tried gatley gunsmithing (didn't answer) and Independence (said no). Totally willing to travel through the surrounding area to get it worked on by a good gunsmith that can help me out.

PM works best

I would also of course be able to ship the rifle to a gunsmith that could help me out. :)

Try Craig Mariovov in Woodland, he's a whiz with rifles.

Thanks, I'll give him a call sometime tomorrow.

So I tried Craig... a couple times, as well as gatley gunsmithing again.

Do people not respond to voicemails and emails anymore? Will a carrier pidgeon work?

Anyway, bump. Still looking for a gunsmith.

Pm'd you with a contact for number for a guy in Socal if you're needing one bad.

ar15barrels on this site hase done the barrel work on a mosin.

have you thought about the cost of the gunsmithing? i would guess all that work would be in the $300 range.

Price isn't a big issue, I want a fun scout rifle.
I've tried M24armorer and randall in the past. Both are too busy with other work it seems to hack up a mosin.

Thanks marc for the contact info. Will give it a try.

I'll give those guys an email. Thanks for the info.

Necro bump.

Tried a few places and they either never responded or said no. I talked to Jim at Predator Customs and after first telling me they would be able to do it and would work me up a price quote; never responded to any more of my emails.

So, does anyone, Anyone at all, know of a gunsmith Anywhere in this country that will answer an email and can do some work on a mosin.

Try J&G Sales in Granite Bay (just east of Sac-a-tomatoes). Good smith, very interesting shop, plus not too bad of a drive for Sonoma. Try this number: (916)-786-9200

Or Google J&G Gunsmithing.

05-24-2010, 7:45 PM
Sent them an email, thanks for the link gunslinger.

05-26-2010, 7:00 PM

Here's (http://www.firearmssite.com/muzzle_cutter.htm) a suggestion since you aren't having much luck finding a 'smith to do the job.
