*SPECIAL NOTICE AS OF 07/01/2020*

WE ARE CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING A SUBSTANTIAL INCREASE IN GUNSMITHING WORK. THE LEAD TIME FOR ANY WORK IS A MINIMUM OF 8 WEEKS. PISTOL SIGHTS ARE THE ONLY EXCEPTION, AS WE ARE STILL MAINTAINING 1-2 WEEKS FOR COMPLETION. IN AN EFFORT TO BE AS FAIR AS POSSIBLE, WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING EXPEDITED SERVICES FOR ANY REASON. WHILE WE HOPE TO GET CAUGHT UP WITH OUR WORKLOAD SOON, WE ARE ANTICIPATING INCREASED DEMAND FOR THE REMAINDER OF THE YEAR. THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE. AS CHICAGOLAND'S PREMIER GUNSMITHING DESTINATION, WE PROMISE WE ARE WORTH THE WAIT!
