: great response so far and I'm looking forward to getting more. Posts will likely start getting removed as we compile a concrete list, so don't worry if your post here disappears. And, this should go without saying, but there's no reason to be bashing other gun docs here. Please refrain from doing so. This post will remain open for another six days, and we'll probably get Gun Doctor status activated on a number of members well before then.
Most of you have seen the big gun doctor listing in the Doctor's Corner forum (
) but are probably aware that it's somewhat out of date. I'm going to use this as an opportunity to get a concrete list of reliable, professional
gun doctors, and implement a new user tag so users can easily identify who they can trust.
If you consider yourself a gun doctor or are otherwise involved in gun work
(painter, engraver, whatever), please make a post here in the following format:
Real Name (Just your first is fine, this isn't the long gun registry.)
Services offered (i.e. if you only work on AEGs, or do paint work...)
Links to documentation of work, if applicable (i.e. pictures of paint work)
Method of contact
We'll require a couple of respectable members in good standing to vouch for your work, so please request some of your clients to post an endorsement in this thread as well. Please refrain from PMs to me or other staff and keep the discussion in this thread.
There's no cost involved, we just want to make it easier for people to keep their equipment in top condition and have good gun doctors enjoying as much work as they can handle.
As mentioned earlier, gun doctors get a spiffy usertag to identify their competence everywhere on the forum, and we're also giving them an expanded PM inbox so they can handle communication more easily.
