Id have to think a completed 80% (with serial #, mfgr, etc engraved per ATF regs) would not be a in issue for any smith to work on. After all, it could theoretically have been transferred to a subsequent owner.
But without any of those required markings, I can understand a smith not being able to work on it. How would they log it in? I suppose if you can "manufacture" a Rudius, you ought to be able to repair it.
I think our thread starter here may be in over his head.
