My brother snapped off a scope base mounting screw in the receiver of his Howa, when trying to remove the snapped screw he got a bit carried away and drilled the screw out but also into the chamber. He went to a couple of gunsmiths and was told rifle’s scrap, you will have to get it re-barrelled and was given a price of between £500 and £1,000.
I spoke to James at Jager who I know and he said get him to send it to me and he would look at it. He duly sent it to James. James was able to remove the barrel and then repair the damage to the barrel, re-tap the damage receiver to M4, and while he had the barrel in the lathe he polished the chamber as part of the repair and re-crowned the muzzle.
Job done for a quarter of the price including re-proof, we then re-zeroed it and he shot a deer with it on our trip this week.
A big thank you on behalf of my brother, another job well done at a most competitive price.
