    Thinking of sending a Garand to Eric for a work over.

    Anyone have experience with him? Were you pleased with the end result? Would you do it again?

    Rifle needs a new barrel so I am looking at the 2K plus new barrel fee. Just trying to figure out if it is worth the price or if I should go with a less costly alternative.

    Thanks.

    I have a Garand that was done by these folks.

    I got the super premium grade with a 4 groove Kreiger barrel. He does trades.

    Me too and I will vouch for Tony Giacobbe. He did excellent work with a good turn around time. He had good prices as well.

    I traded a Springfield "parade" barreled action in, which basically someone spot welded the barrel to the receiver in for a good Springfield action that he put a new criterion barrel on and reparked all the parts. It also came back with a Schuster adjustable gas plug. The rifle looks and shoots great.
