Does anyone have any experience with any work done by this guy?

I have a guide gun & like the idea of an extended magazine... i also like the looks of the custom stocks he puts on w/the cartridge trap, but i hate to send a rifle to someone i don't know, or who hasn't at least been reccomended by somebody.

thanks,

Davey

Davey,

Sundles from BB reco'd <a href="http://www.drccustomgunsights.com" target="_blank">http://www.drccustomgunsights.com (http://www.drccustomgunsights.com)</a> called they guy and spoke to him liked what I heard. I can relate about sending a rifle to a "pig in a poke" (no slur intended on Brockman, don't know him or of him, he might be great) I figured unless Sundles knowledge began with ammo and ended at the firearm (which I seriously doubt) he was probably pretty good. So far so good. Good luck,Randy

Davey,
I have only read about some of his work in one of the gun magazines. I pretty sure now General Boddington was the reviewer. Nothing but good stuff to say about him. And the rifles were great! Marlin 336's with all kinds of inventive modifications. Seems like he did a M1A, also, but I might be wrong on that.

Davey,
Like the last post, I have only read good stuff about Brockman. They were one of the first to offer a "scout" scope mount on lever-actions.
I just did some business with a similar outfit in AK, <a href="http://www.wildwestguns.com." target="_blank">http://www.wildwestguns.com (http://www.wildwestguns.com.).</a> I purchased a drop in kit for my 1895 Marlin. The hammer lightened up the trigger pull (tightened it up/no creep at all and three pounds), and the "bear proof" ejector works smoothly. Both peices went in with ease after following their instructions and I am definitely not a gunsmith. I also followed their instructions to hone certain areas to smooth up the lever operation. Everything they suggested worked great and I would recommend their company for anything you are considering.

Brockmans does nice work. The kind of mods you mentioned are pretty straight forward, Any decent gunsmith should be able to do them. If its Brockmans components your after, go for it, You should have good results.

Davey,

I know Jim Brockman. He lives pretty close to me. (by Idaho standards) He does great work, as does Dave Clay. Either of these guys have have very good reputations. Ive seen numerous rifles done by Clay and can not reccomnend him enough.

HI,

I have a Dave Clay 50-110 lever and his work is top of the line, I could not be happier with this rifle. I am also getting a 416 Rigby done by MR. Brockman, both are very good. Kev
