The gunsmith didn't give that as an option and I actually went in there to tell him I would prefer a new lever after thinking it over. As I mentioned in a previous post, that gun was nearly new and It would always bother me knowing that mangled lever was in the gun.

I am still waiting for the gunsmith to find a lever. I ordered a lever from an online dealer, told them it was a new AS but the lever they sent will not fit.

I took a rifle in to a gunsmith I have known for 50 years because it would not extract the fired case . he was a excellent gunsmith at one time. he built a 1000 yard rifle to use deer hunting. he won many 1000 yd shoots anyway he charged me $65.00 for cleaning it, it still wouldent work so I took it back and it still dident work after charging me another $65.00.. so I took it apart and found the problem and fixed it without any cost.. I found out he had an idiot working for him that had worked on it. so things change over time.. now if I have a problem with a smith the first time I use him I never go back, I don't allow anyone to burn me twice.

Still waiting. I spoke to my smith on the 7th, he is working with the dealer I purchased the incorrect lever from to do an exchange.
