SERVICES WE OFFER
After 5 years in business and a lack of available gunsmithing and general firearm maintenance in our area we have noticed an increase in custom requests. Great North is proud to offer general services.
Outlined below is a list of basic services we offer at reasonable prices with qualified technicians to serve you and ensure you continue to have a reliable and safe shooting experience.
|Stock Length / Recoil Pad||1.5||$150.00|
|Bedding / Free Float||1.5||$150.00|
|Range Ballistic Mapping Service||TBD||$200.00|
An hourly rate for customers who do not fit directly into one of the listed services but want something else that is doable by our gunsmiths.
Is for smaller jobs that don’t take more then 20 min. Also set out for someone looking to have extensive work done as a preliminary diagnostic check. The diagnostic fee can be waved if the work to be completed is agreed on and commences work.
For customers who must have the work done as soon as possible. Jump the line of other customers to have work expedited.
When bringing in your own gun and scope not purchased from us you can be assured that your scope mount (link to scope mounts) job will still be done to the highest standards. Using proper Loctite for base mount installation when required. All screws or torques heads will be properly torqued to manufacture specifications. Once the mount is down and leveled it will be bore sighted to either the desired 50 or 100 yards you want.
*Disclaimer* Bore sighting means you will be close to bullseye, but it is the customers job to do final sight in and verify on target (link to targets).
Customers can now bring their firearms in to have them looked over for any ware and tare or worst case any obvious damage. General cleaning will include a full-bore scrubbing and cleaning using pro-shot products (link to pro-shot). A general wipe down of all exterior surfaces and oil or grease applied to all major moving parts before returning the firearm to the customer.
Have an older firearm that’s seen some neglect or have a firearm that has been heavily used? This service provides customers with a complete strip down of the firearm. Cleaning all the nooks and crannies with proper cleaners and tools. This is a tidiest process and takes extra time. Once all pieces are completely stripped of foreign matter the firearm is then properly lubricated and assembled. Leaving you ready to go to the range to enjoy more shooting experiences.
Bring in your firearm and new precision trigger and our gunsmith can have it installed and adjusted to how you want it.
Stock lengthening and recoil pad installation
For customers looking to adjust their length of pull either shorter or longer this is something our gunsmiths can do. Whether you’re planning on keeping your existing recoil pad when applicable or upgrading to a new softer limb saver pad (link to limb saver) our gunsmiths will ensure that the fit and comfort of the adjustment is exactly how you want it.
Bedding and free floating
Looking to accurize your firearm or having issues with barrel harmonics? Have your action bedded using nothing but the best products to ensure all of our action bedding jobs are a snug secure fit to improve accuracy. Free float your barrel or increasing your barrel channel in the stock helps to ensure barrel harmonics stay the same from shot to shot, this is a great way to also improve accuracy.
