    Default Fort Collins area gunsmith suggestions

    Any recommendations for gun smith work in the Fort Collins/Loveland/Greeley area?

    It is for a Remington 1100 if that matters.

    Thank you.

    The guys down at Mile High Shooting should be able to help you out.
    And after calming me down with some orange slices and some fetal spooning, ET revealed to me his singular purpose.

    Best,
    That it is but to the best of my knowledge they stick with precision rifles.

    What is going on with it?

    Not cycling fully. Load a shell, shoot, and the action only goes about 95% of the way before going back to closed. The spent shell is not getting ejected, thus rendering it to a single shot before I have to manually clear the spent shell and load another. This happens despite different loads (Federal, Winchester, Remington... 1100fps all the way up to 1325 fps).

    I field stripped, wiped everything with solvent then lubricating wipes, no change. I suspect it needs a much better cleaning that I can do, and possibly some parts replacement... It is 30 years old after all, and has seen several thousand rounds over the years.

    YEP!!! Your o-ring is leaking and needs replaced. easy peasy.
    Mom's comin' 'round to put it back the way it ought to be.

    Anyone that thinks war is good is ignorant. Anyone that thinks war isn't needed is stupid.

    SA and C Ward nailed it. Start with the rings

    I can second Pat and PM guns. I was having some issues with my ar10 cycling correctly, he took a quick look at it gave me some recommendations with no charge. Great place.
