Reviving a Springfield Model 67 Shotgun

Sometimes gunsmiths must perform work akin to that of a dentist making a bridge or a surgeon arranging bone fragments to their original state.

As a lady and her grandson approached me with an old shotgun, holding some of its parts in her hand, she had little hope that it could be repaired. At first view of the parts I wasn’t too sure either. “This old gun was my husband’s,” she said, “and we hope you can fix it.” To her grandson, an eager, young hunter,  the broken gun held real sentimental value. I told them I would do my best.
