This was the beautiful stock you just had finished on the earlier post?

Gosh, I'd be upset if I scratched it myself while hunting, but I'd be livid if my smith did that to the gun.

I'd like an explanation from him as well if he wants any future business. Good grief, it was just a trigger job!

I know hindsight is 20/20 but next time take the action and barrel out of the stock and keep the stock at home. I also remove the scopes from my rifles when taking them to the smith.

Excellant Advice and I hadn't thought of it till you mentioned ,for this topic.

Can say the same for hard to find parts ie Magazine/Clips unless they are needed by the smith.Took a 788 in the other day for some minor work and the smith handed me back the clip.

They didn't explain to me how or why it happened. They were actually shocked and dumbfounded when I brought it to their attention. They were tripping over their tongues trying to give me an explanation. They did however tell me that I would be getting a brand new scope (the other scope was brand spankin new as well) and they would fix the scratches. They don't know this yet but I'm not going to pay for the trigger job. I for one will not ever bring any of my guns to them for any smith work and will never recommend their services.

I learned a lesson by sending off a stock to be camo dipped. There was a leaf tension clip spring in the stock that I figured would be fine to leave in. Well upon return no spring, phone call and they said they never saw it. I new of another company that did custom work on Sako's and just by some miracle they had two extra one's in their shop they let me have for just shipping. Beretta was going to charge somewhere around $80.00 I think for a replacement. The camo dip company was going to cover the cost so we both got lucky by me finding the replacement.
