Mark, I received the gun the other day & let me say that it's a stunner!  I can hardly believe it's the same gun.  The stock-no signs of any of the dents, and beautiful grain & finish.  Now I know why you recut the checkering...its glorious!  The case looks fantastic-love the patterning.  The barrells are just amazing.  Needless to say, I am greatly pleased by the result of your efforts.
Additionally, when you mentioned the shipping charge when we settled, I was somewhat chagrined;  however, when I opened the box & saw the case and gun socks I felt I received my money's worth for the shipping/handling charge.

Thank you for your interest, time, attention and skill in restoring this gun.  Count me as another of your satisfied customers.

I have been looking at my L C Smith that you restored every day since you returned it and I am just now getting over the shock of what a beautiful job you did and thought it would be appropriate to let you know how happy I am with your work. To think of the age of the gun and the age of the tree that provided the wood and to see how it looks now. It will be cherished the rest of my life.

The barrels arrived here at 10:05 this morning. ( WED 30 NOV ) You did an excellent job of packing. Package arrived A -- OK. I am very pleased with your repair and refinishing job on the barrels. You may use my name for a reference.

Thank you for a job well done

If you go to Mark's looking for a SxS and leave without one, then you really weren't serious about getting a quality gun.

Good Stuff Mark !!!!

Awesome service! Broken firing pin on Friday afternoon, back in my hands on Saturday evening. Great selection of SxS's. I have never left empty handed.

I've had Mark open up the full & fuller fixed chokes on several guns to more hunting and target friendly dimensions.  Each time the barrels came back exactly to the specs I desired and mirror smooth, even when I gave him some obscure constriction like .0085".  He also cleaned up some checkering that came back factory fresh.  Great work and reasonable too!

Mark, Thanks for your great work on both the Webley & Scott and the old Barella. The reblueing on the W&S is excellent and putting the recoil pad on that you recommended is perfect. It looks like it was factory installed and makes this gun very comfortable to shoot.

We took both guns out for a little pheasant and chukar shooting between Christmas and New Years with  excellent results. Thanks for a job well done. I will gladly recommend you to others - Best Wishes for the coming year.

Hi Mark,

It has been a week now since I pick up my shotgun from you and I have marveled at you work everyday since. The lighting at the gun show did not do your work justice. When I goy home last Saturday I was again very pleased with your work. Thank again for your very skilled work. Please use me as a reference in any of your customers ask you.

Thanks again.
