Kudos to Magnum Gunsmithing in Lima, OH. Glen re-threaded the barrel on my L1A1, adjusted the headspace and even threw in a flash hider he had pained to match the barrel. Definitely above and beyond the call of duty.

Now I just need to get rid of the ugly plastic stock.

I had one of Glen's FAL's pass through my hands as well... Mojomatic to me to my nephew as a high school graduation present. 50.00 type. Of my 3 FAL's, it was easily the "purdiest."

Nephew is VERY happy. Even 2 years later.

Glad to hear. He's currently working on barrelling an M1 receiver with new Criterion. Met him once, seems like a good guy.

He did a nice job for me twice, much better than Moses, who fucked up a number of things. This includes both an Imbel/DSA receiver FAL and an AK-74 built on a Bulgy kit w/ Nodak receiver.

It's a real pleasure to read something positive about a gunsmith rather than the usual bitchery. Filing Magnum Gunsmithing for future reference, Ohio ain't that far.

I appreciate your response
You can read reviews all day long
But I would rather reach out and hear from folks that have had work done
Thanks
Years ago he did an Argentine para FAL for me that turned out great. I sold it to a member here, still unfired, and he was more than satisfied.

I thought he was out of business as I sent him a message through his website several months ago and never got a response. I'm glad he's still doing work.

I don't think he's independent anymore, but works with a gun store up in the Youngstown area.
