I showed your pictures of the chamfered cylinders to my gunsmith (who did not chamfer the cylinders enough the first time) of what I wanted and he about freaked out
He said I was going to ruin the gun, void the warranty, it is unsafe and he'd make me sign a document that I would not sue him if I got hurt using the gun.This gunsmith had a reputation of excellent gun work but can be highly emotional & moody, but this is the first time I actually saw it.
He was pacing behind the counter while I was talking to him slamming things around having a fit. WTF?
He was saying if I used high power 10mm loads I could have a case failure. The gun would be unsafe. "Your going to destroy the gun!!! he kept saying"
I was like holy crap "I'm only using this gun in competition".
The situation caught me off guard and I just signed the paper and got out of there.
Later at home I thought about what just transpired. I just wanted my gun back at this point. I left a message for him that night not to do anything to it I'll pick it up tomorrow. I didn't want to deal with this. Went there first thing in the morning to get the gun back and it was too late. He said he cut the chamfer larger so when the shell is against the breechface the cylinder still goes all the way down to the bottom of the supported case "and I'm not cutting it any farther!
". He showed the gun to me and stomped off in disgust. The job he did is actually very good, but man he had my stomach in knots freaking out on me like that.
The guy has emotional issues or something... geez...
Should have just sent it to Randy Lee. So much for trying to support the local gunsmith..
