View Full Version : gunsmith who specializes in Mausers?

12-08-2006, 5:58 PM
This should have been the first place I asked this question.... (I made similar inquiries on one or two other forums that I read occasionally, and the suggested 'smiths were always located a few thousand miles away.)

Just so that there are no misunderstandings....can anyone suggest a SoCal (LA area) gunsmith that either works exclusively on Mausers or at least considers Mausers his specialty?

I've got a modern 'custom' rifle built from a Yugoslavian (Zastava) Mauser action that could use some expert attention.

Call Steve Rorick at Inland Accuracy Lab in Riverside.

He did a great job on my Pre 64 Win. Mod 70.

Bain and Davis in San Gabriel.

You can also call Mitchell's Mausers in Fountain Valley, maybe they can recommend a Mauser specialist.

Harry Kashiwabara is who you are looking for. He's an old japanese guy who does FFL work and gunsmithing out of his garage, primarily on mausers and mauser related stuff. Located in San Gabriel, you should give him a call. Real friendly and knowledgeable sort of guy.
