    Hello!

    Does anyone know of gunsmiths who will do custom conversion work? I know of R. L. Millington and Kenny Howell, but I'm not sure that either of them are taking new business right now (I can't find valid contact info for either of them on the web).

    Thank you in advance!

    That does not appear to be good although their website was not nearly as good as the Kirst website. Hopefully it does not mean R&D is in trouble.

    The "www.armsportllc.net" site, is R.L. Millington, and was last updated in 2003. I tried clicking on and sending to the mail address, but got a "Connection refused by armsportllc.com." message back. I noticed that the mail address I got by clicking on the email link ([email protected]) was different than the address on the web page ([email protected]), so I sent to the one on the web page as well. That mail went through, but it's been over a week, and no reply. I probably just need to be more patient!

    And I do need to try the phone number that is listed, just haven't done it yet...

    Thanks all!

    FYI, I spoke to Kenny earlier this week. He said he is in "catch-up" mode, with cylinders etc.. I forgot to ask about plans for his website...
