doc's gun shop in carrollton....

nice folks over there. i dropped off my para and explained the troubles i was having. they are gonna polish the feed ramp, throat something and look at the extractor. gonna be about 8 weeks they said. they have a lot of rifles, and a few pistols as well. i was really drawn to an Hk 12ga they had. i really hope this fixes the trouble i am experiencing with this pistol, because man i just love the double stack 14+1 .45 just thought i would share, nice folks and a good selection of rifles for certain! they are right off I35 and whitlock/sandylake on the NE corner. i will update when i get the para back.

god bless.

The work you described should take less than 2 hours. I hope they gave you an 8 week estimate so they could do it in a week and make themselves look like a hero.

No doubt.

I would have had to pass on that.

A "dirty" gun can cause some of the issues your are seeing!

Closed on Mondays BTW....They also have reloading supplies. Also quite a few used guns.

They do excellent gunsmith work but they do have a rather long turn around time; it is a small shop and a lot of the time the gunsmith is helping customers...

Another little known shop in that area is SPS Guns on the SE corner of Josey and Belt Line; owner is a gunsmith and also has another gunsmith there...

I dropped my rifle off at my local smith on 5/3 for inletting a stock. I was told they had a 180 gun waiting list, so was quoted 4 weeks. It's still there, but nearly done.

Anything to do with a smith is going to take a while right now...

well i have a "couple" other pistols so i can do without one for a bit. its a small 1-2 man operation, dealing mostly with hunting rifles from what i gather. I was told to expect a long wait time as hunting season approaches. if it solves the problem, it will be well worth the wait! its a very accurate pistol, i just need it to be 100%reliable.

David yes i clean my guns after every trip to range, and my carry weapons even more often. So i doubt that is it.

god bless.

I've never really cared about Para's although I like the concept of a double stack .45. I simply don't have a big enough hand to grip them comfortably.

I haven't been up to that shop in years, since I stopped working in the area. I'll have to swing by again and check them out.

Damn, went a little over the 8 week estimate. At least Doc fixed it up right.



One thing I have learned about gun smiths is that whatever time frame they give you, double it. Not unlike performance shops. I have used Doc and he takes his time, but his work is top notch. The shop is also filled with the stereotypical old codger gun enthusiasts/extreme fudds on any given weekend.

I have always thought that there is money to be made in gunsmithing. Open up a few shops and gain a reputation of timeliness and you could dominate the market. That being said, gunsmiths are hard to come by as there are only 4 accredited schools in the US.
