    Scottsdale, AZ - thank God.
    Does anyone know of a truly meticulous Mauser machinist / gunsmith? I am not looking for someone to screw a barrel on, I am looking for someone that knows how to clean/true the face of the inner torque shoulder concentric with the bore of the receiver, clean/chase the receiver barrel thread concentric with the bore of the receiver, and face the receiver perpendicular to the bore of the receiver.

    This is not a mandrel and tap job.

    I can do all the other work and will have the receiver re-hardened by Blanchard’s in Salt Lake City.

    I sure hope someone can help because it is getting harder and harder to find guys that know how to do the work the right way…

    Thanks in advance.

    go over to the gunsmithing forum on accurate reloading, there are several there who do that type of work.
    i normally tru the receiver face on a mandrel then i use a home built lapping tool to square the primary torque shoulder.

    you don't need to have the receiver re-carbed if your only truing the shoulders and threads, if you lap the lugs i would have it re-carbed.
    if the lugs have any setback i would have the receiver re-carbed before any lapping or machining is done. i've seen a few receivers where the locking lugs sprungback a little and had the be re-lapped.
