Gunsmith in Virginia Beach area

Postby UpAllNightDude » Sun, 30 Oct 2011 12:40:06

So I recently purchased a new Saiga 12, and now I'd like to get it converted to a pistol grip configuration. Anyone know of any good gunsmiths in the Virginia Beach area?

thanks,
Mike

I actually visited Coastal Gun Works a couple of weeks ago and while I didn't buy anything or have any work done he seemed very nice, and seemed to know what he was talking about. My first impression of him seemed good so most likely when I go to start modding my rifle more for 3 gun competition I shall take it to him.

This goes for me too, guys. Thanks for the contacts. I was hoping to get some stuff done to my 1911 after deployment. Maybe one of these smiths will be the ticket!

Don't know why this never posted, but it was saved in Firefox on a broken(well, apparently not so broken) laptop.

As far as the one on providence road. I'm not a fan of the guy. He might do good work, but I didn't appreciate the way he talked about what I wanted done.

Asked him if he could do a saiga conversion, all he said was that he wasn't interested in doing one. While I looked around his "store" I overheard him speaking to another gentleman saying he didn't understand the allure of "black" guns. Something to the effect of posers.

First off, I can appreciate a classic gun as much as the next guy, but who are you to judge what I want done? Secondly, being a snob gunsmith will probably not help your business venture

Needless to say, I will not be using his services again. If you like to have your taste in guns judged, by all means, visit this man.

I completed the conversion myself, with no issues, and the Saiga runs great!
