    Screw Cutting

    Hello all

    I have recently purchased a Ruger M77 Mark 2 in 22-250 caliber to use for fox control on the estate where I help manage a pheasant syndicate. I was just wondering how much the going rate is to get it screw cut form my A-TEC sound moderator to reduce noise and recoil. I have been quoted around the 110 mark with proofing.

    Being a new father I am trying to save my pennies and would appreciate any advice or information regarding this query.

    Thank you in anticipation.

    James

    Try Borders Gunroom in St. Boswells - not too bad a price & did my last rifle while I waited

    Re-proofing is your choice (or possibly the choice of the insurance company of the gunsmith you choose).

    Screwcutting ranges from 35 to 65, but remember that buggering it up is much more expensive in your time and money so choose your gunsmith carefully. I don't know where exactly in the North-East you are but others may be able to give you recommendations from their experience and I strongly suggest that you let that be your guide, rather than the cost. I do remember and sympathise with the constraints of life as a new father - you don't need any more stress in arguing about a badly cut thread.

    Regards

    Steve Kershaw (Lancashire) - sorted out my rifle very quickly after it had been messed up by a local man.

    got to way up the cost of travelling to a gunsmith who is cheaper but may be a good 20 to 30 miles away.
    but the main thing to do is pick one who knows what there doing. or it will cost more in the long run.

    A lot of sense talked. Get it done by a repuatable guy, i would say 100 is a reasonable price. Go on recommendation. if its cheaper then bonus! I have used Steve Kershaw a few times and cannot fault the guy. Hes in South Yorkshire, Howden to be precise.

    Sorry pedant head on Howden was in the East Riding then went to Humberside then back to the East Riding when it was fought for and the East Riding was reinstated. Bring back the West Riding so my birth certificate is right, bloody South Yorkshire my arse.

    PS Dave Wylde does some decent work he is in Barnsley bit of a travel but has been said get it done right or it will cost you in the long run bad accuracy or poor fit of moderator leading to other problems.
