Anyone have experience in dealing with these folks? I'm thinking of sending my Marline 1895G, .45-70 to them for their "Big Lewie" treatment.

I've seen them recently written up in one of the magazines and their work looked really nice!

Anyone have any others that they really liked for their work on this rifle?

If you have something that's too "hot" for the forum then a response in PM's is fine.

Here's a link to their site.

No experience with your smith of choice, but I must say their guns are pretty. And they seem very proud of them!

Anyone know if they are in business, still? I have a Hi Power that I'd like to send to them.
Thanks

Lew Bonitz is now at Grizzly, I think he got the lever action side.
