Shotgun Fixed Choke Opening - 12 & 20 Gauge Only
Before the days of screw in choke tubes most shotguns had a fixed choke. Meaning the choked area of the barrel was swaged down to a "Fixed" dimension. On select models without chrome lined barrels MGNG can open this area up to more open dimension through a honing process. Typically this is done when the fixed choke is tight like a Full choke and is opened to a more open choke like a Modified, Skeet or Improved Cylinder. In some cases but not all the barrel can be remarked to the new choke designation. *12 and 20 gauge only
Shotgun Choke Threading - 12 & 20 Gauge Only
Some shotguns as we all know have fixed chokes which can be very annoying. GNG Gunsmiths have the tools to thread most shotguns. for details please contact GNG *12 and 20 gauge only
Shotgun Drill and Tap Scope Mount Holes (Up to 4 holes)
Not all shotguns leave the factory with the ability to add a scope mount, GNG's gunsmiths have the ability to drill and tap your receiver for the addition of a scope base, allowing for the installation of a reflex sight or scope to your shotgun.
Jeweling, or engine turned as some may still call it, adds a classic & elegant look to any fine shotgun. Many shotguns had areas on the firearm that utilized jeweling. The ejectors, barrel lugs, carrier, bolt or water table area of SXS shotguns. Jeweling is mainly done on shotguns that have faded or worn jeweled areas or after re-bluing or polishing in areas that have to be re-applied. Jeweling can be done to most any metal surfaces that it is desired.
Shotgun Hydraulic Barrel Dent Removal (12 & 20 Gauge ONLY)
It is bound to happen. Getting a dent in an expensive (sometimes irreplaceable) shotgun barrel will happen. In many cases this can be fixed with the proper tools and methods. Depending on where the dent or dents are located GNG can usually take them out using a hydraulic dent raiser. In some cases we can also turn down brass plugs to exact bore diameter and with heat push dents out as well. Typically rebluing the barrel is a must after heat is used and dents in areas that have threads for choke tubes can be problematic. Shoot us an email if you are interested in having this performed with details of the problem. We will get right back with you on how we can help.
