    Custom Mill Work

    I just want to test the waters here so please bare with me.
    Me and a very good friend work for a major oilfield and natural gas tooling company. My friend is a class a machinist and manager. He has a 4-axis mill in his garage and does custom work. Would anyone be interrested in having any mill work done on their side arm?

    Thank you,
    Ernie

    Custom work on what?

    If your friend is "engaged in the business" as a gunsmith, he must be licensed by the BATFE.

    Sorry I wasn't clear. He hasn't done any work on firearms, but I can attest to his skill. He holds several pattends and awards of excellence. I understand how protective people are of the guns (I wipe down my gun every time I unholster). I may be able to post pics of other things he's done.

    Still, if he does any gun work, he must have an FFL.
