Not for me but a guy on another site. Has a Winchester 1887 12ga. (at least I think it is) needing some love. Lever is stuck.
What about guns? When do we get guns?

I have a friend that works at Swans Gun Repair in Jackson. They are near Jackson Academy.

Billy Tierce near Utica. You can look up his number on the web. Really good guy and a great gunsmith.

My good friend's dad owns Swan's in Jackson. Nice guy. I'd go there.

Actually Mr. Billy Tierce once told me he does some gun work for Swan's. Your gun may end up with him anyway.

a lot of the shops around Jackson send their work to billy tierce, problem is he has a slow turn around time this time of year


I'm trying to see things from your point of view, problem is there's only room for one head in your ass.

Yeah I knew that. He closes his shop down one day per week (used to be Tuesday or Wednesday I believe) to make his rounds to all the gun shops in Jackson and surrounding areas for gun pickups.

billy does do pretty good work... BUT I don't recommend letting him do a trigger job.   I won't name the member here but he had a rem 700 223 that had a trigger job done by him.  The rifle would sometimes fire when you load a round into the chamber and close the bolt.  It now has one of my old factory triggers and its fine.

Incorrect sir.
