That's just too nice.

I hope no one uses Broad Creek Rifle Works. I sent him my brand new unfired #1 2 yrs ago. I got it back and was getting 2-3 in groups with reloads. I was told he blueprinted the whole action and recut crown. Well that was b.s the barrel never came off! I sent it back and when I ogt it back 2 months later it did shoot better but he kept my gun case. I tried several times I get him to send it w/no luck. In general a real shitty business man. He was supposed to send along test targets and dummy rounds,they never came either I guess they were lost with the case! Its sad this is the only time I've ever had a problem with anyone in the gun industry. I just dont want anyone to have the same problem.

I also had a problem with Broad Creek Rifle Works, had them re-barrel a # 1 and when it came back the firing pin was hiting so low and off center I was getting mis-fires.

chestsprings, I too, had a horrific experience with one of those listed ( BCRW ), probably the same one as yours. It took me a little over 3 YEARS to get my gun, and that only after the very real threat of legal action. I was ready to drive to his place and retrieve my rifle. Having kinfolk that are employed with the US Attorneys Office seemed to help motivate him.

Isn't it some thing a lot of us had problems with the same "gunsmith".

I saved all my correspondence, & there is not enough space on this forum to list it all.

One of many incidents, when my rifle was sent to a person in Kansas ( I live in Va. ) by the "gunsmith", & he would not send a call tag to have it returned, until I threaten legal action. The story could go on & on.

I am over my situation, but I would NEVER recommend the "gunsmith".

Funny I told my buddy not to use BCRW.He did anyway for 2 trigger jobs. Well he got his rifles back but the gunsmith ended up keeping his cases. One of the same probs I had too. This guy is so clueless he cant remember what came wih each rifle and even who to send them too. I put out info on alot of sites to stop someone from making the saem mistake I did.
