Found a GEM!
With the closing of the Bass Pro Shops higher end internet gun room, I feel Cabelas maybe got a little scared. They are slashing prices and in my case, offering prices LOWER than what they bought the guns at as trade in's.
I have the special treat of having a real Birmingham, England trained gunsmith within an hour of my house. Mr. H.G. Lomas.
As I am a left handed shooter, he will hot oil bend the stock to the appropriate cast, and re-bend the triggers so they favor the articulation of my left trigger finger. My only question is should I leave the chokes as is (LIGHT MOD/FULL) and just shoot spreader loads through them? have it reamed to IC/MOD (and still shoot spreaders for grouse), or send the barrels to Briley and get thin wall choke tubes out in? I'd love to hear all your opinions.
I can't recommend Hugh highly enough, for any of your double gun smith needs give him a ring, he still retains his accent, and is amazing at what he does.
